After safely saving the contents of a single disk, 1 TB MBWE blue ring, I'm trying to replace the disk with a spare 300GB seagate disk that I had. The idea was to use the MBWE as a download/torrent box with transmission installed on it.
I have followed the procedure at this link : http://mybookworld.wikidot.com/add-new-hdd-to-wdwe
However, I'm running into the issues at step 10 - I'm able to run mdadm -Es and get the UUID's of the raid partitions, but, I'm not able to mount the /dev/md4 partition to edit the mdadm.conf. When I try to force the file system to ext3 using the -t switch, I get an error saying that the partition is not in the ext3 format.
Any help, thoughts or assistance is very much appreciated. I've been breaking my head over this for almost 3 weeks now and I've been up an down through the forums without anything concrete!
thanks very much!
