I have a 24-disk FreeNAS 9.10.2 installation in which I just replaced a disk in a mirror vdev (1 of 12 mirror vdevs) with a larger drive (3 -> 10TB).

After 5 minutes into the resilvering process, I got an email that the new drive has over 172 bad sectors! :(

Question: Can I offline the new drive during the resilver or should I wait for the resilver to finish? I would prefer to avoid waiting 6-8 hours for the resilver to finish, if possible.
