[linux-lvm] What if a drive dies ?



Hello.

I'm sorry if I ask something that's be asked a million times before but I
prefer answers to my specific questions. I hope someone will try to help.

I have a VG with several differently sized PVs and one LV. It is working
fine but I am affraid that one day one of the drives would fail. I'd like to
know what I'll be looking at when that happens. What if one drive would
fail in that VG ? Can I remove it and 'repair' the VG/LV to run on with
one drive less (data is written in striped mode). That would mean I got
my VG/LV back on-line but the data that was on the bad disk would be
missing (a small price to pay actually). Would I need to resize the filesystem
again with some tool or anything special ?

Thanks for the answer(s).
