RAID 1 array doesn't survive reboots
« on: February 12, 2012, 04:40:06 pm »
In LinuxMCE 10.04, I created a RAID 1 array.  Things looked cool, so I copied some media to it.  I rebooted the core.  The RAID 1 array didn't come back, and LinuxMCE reported the array as failed.  Sweet!

I checked /proc, and instead of seeing md1, I saw md_d1.  WTF.

I'm pretty sure I can recover it - again.  Yes, it's failed twice, and both times was because of a reboot of the core.

I think this is a bug.  Where do I report this (though maybe the devs already know)?

I recovered the array with:

Code: [Select]
mdadm --assemble /dev/md1 /dev/sdb1 /dev/sdc1
It's rebuilding right now.

I hope I don't have to do this all the time! 

I'm reconsidering my idea of putting the LinuxMCE OS and the media storage all in box.  Maybe it would be safer to separate the two, though I was trying to avoid that.
