My server running Centos 5.1 software RAID 10 got its one hard drive failed (sdd). It was hot swappable so that was replaced with a new drive.
Linux has now assigned a new drive letter to it sde instead of sdd. I don't want to reboot.
Is it possible to fix this?
Also what if I continue with sde and make partitions, add to RAID etc. Would the drive letter be changed whenever the machine is rebooted in the future?
