# Workaround for the SSD RAID1 dual drive failure mode

At least it can keep things operating while we get parts out. Shipped a number today, placed another order for the new vendors drives. I can confirm that heat is an issue with SSDs.

As root, on the unit, decide where you are going to place an image, then
dd if=/dev/zero of=/path/to/loopback/raid.img bs=1 count=1 \
seek=32G
losetup  /dev/loop0 /path/to/loopback/raid.img
