Ok, I can legitimately claim to being sick (home yesterday, seeing a doc),
so that's my excuse for not finishing what I was looking for: I want
something like MegaRAID that will understand the drives, so that I can
figure out which drive just failed and replace it. There's no
blinkinlights, no clue... and based on the two that were *not* light, but
were mounted, it's one of the two on the left that *are* lit, and I'm
assuming RAID 1 here.
