RAID issues
« on: April 28, 2010, 02:25:21 pm »
I'm trying to configure software RAID array using two 2TB disks (/dev/sdc and /dev/sdd) under LMCE WebAdmin GUI, but something doesn't look right too me...

It builds the array without any problems, 'mdadm --detail /dev/md0' looks fine and so as 'cat /proc/mdstat', but when it finishes it doesn't actually mount the drive (ARRAY - /dev/md0) anywhere. During the setup I've selected 'public' as a directory structure and assumed that it will automatically mount new created partition under /home/public, but it didn't do that... Does it mean that I have to modify /etc/fstab file manually and decide where do I wan't new partition to be used?

I've also noticed that when I go to Automation -> Device status, both my drives (/dev/sdc and /dev/sdd) and 'Software Raid 0' devices have "**RUN_CONFIG**" in their status column. Does it mean that something else has to be configured... something that I'm missing perhaps?
Also... when I go to Automation -> Device status and then go into my 'Software Raid 0' device and view details of 'Software Raid 0 #1854' device template: configuration file for this template ( doesn't exist on my system for some reason. I've looked under /usr/pluto/bin and I can't find it...

I'm running LMCE version 8.10b installed couple of days ago using network installation.

I would appreciate any feedback.

I have a similar problem. After doing some command line stuff to get actually get RAID working, the array was created but never appears in the Media Director. It mounted (I can see it in Dolphin) but there is no indication of it existing from the Manage Drive section of the Orbiters.

I also have the same problem with USB drives mounting but not appearing in the Orbiters, leaving me having to open Dolphin and manually copy the file I want over.
