I have Linux (Crunchbang 8.10) set up with 3x1TB Hard drives set up as software RAID5.
It has recently suddenly stopped working.
cat /proc/mdstat shows the following:
Personalities : [linear] [multipath] [raid0] [raid1] [raid6] [raid5] [raid4] [raid10] md0 : inactive sdd(S) sdc(S) sdb(S) 2930287488 blocks unused devices:
mdadm --detail /dev/md0 shows:
mdadm: md device /dev/md0 does not appear to be active.
I Have tried running sudo mdadm -A /dev/md0 but get:
mdadm: /dev/md0 not identified in config file.
My /etc/mdadm/mdadm.conf shows:
# mdadm.conf # # Please refer to mdadm.conf(5) for information about this file. # # by default, scan all partitions (/proc/partitions) for MD superblocks. # alternatively, specify devices to scan, using wildcards if desired. DEVICE partitions # auto-create devices with Debian standard permissions CREATE owner=root group=disk mode=0660 auto=yes # automatically tag new arrays as belonging to the local system HOMEHOST # instruct the monitoring daemon where to send mail alerts MAILADDR root # definitions of existing MD arrays # This file was auto-generated on Thu, 21 May 2009 18:32:49 +0100 # by mkconf $Id$
Has my config been corrupted? Please help.
