Hello All,Did some tests, and was able to replicate your problem so hopefully this
I followed the steps in the link below but my RAID 10 array had a problem
after a reboot.
What I did was:
- constructed 2 RAID0s (3x73GB each)
- combined these 2 into a RAID1
- mkfs.ext3 /dev/md45 (the name of my RAID10 array)
- mounted it on /data
All seemed ok. It shows on /proc/mdstat. Can write to the partition where
I mounted it. But after a reboot, I got errors re this new RAID device
was prompted for the root password to enter repair mode.
Is there something I am missing here?
will work on your system.
First, make sure the OS can start the RAID-0's. If it can, see if you
can start the RAID10 with:
mdadm -As /dev/md45
If you get something like:
mdadm: no devices found for /dev/md45
Then the problem is your mdadm.conf file. In that case, run:
mdadm --examine --scan /dev/md4 /dev/md5 >> /etc/mdadm.conf
And for some reason, it didn't like the devices= field on my system, so
get rid of those and replace it with a "DEVICE partitions" line at the
very top of the file.
If you can then do the mdadm -As command, you should be good to go.
And definitely talk to your boss about WHY he wants mirrored stripes.
If its for 'performance reasons' offer to bench the two and that should
show him that any performance difference would be statistically
insignificant and not worth the loss of redundancy. Having numbers to
back up your case may help.
Hope this helps,
heck. So I then created 3 mirrors and joined them together. Everything
- 3 RAID1s - /dev/md4 /dev/md5 /dev/md6
- combined them to RAID 0 - /dev/md10
- Did mkfs.ext3 /dev/md10
- Added md10 to /etc/mdadm.conf. Doing 'mdadm --examine --scan
--config=/etc/mdadm.conf' shows all my RAID arrays correctly.
Now I tried stopping /dev/md10 then restarted it with 'mdadm -As
/dev/md10' but then it gives me an error that 'no devices found for
/dev/md10.' If I do 'mdadm --examine --scan --config=/etc/mdadm.conf,'
/dev/md10 shows up. Any more suggestions? I've given myself until today to
make this work, or else I'm gonna go for RAID5.
Thanks to all.
