The following confuses me:

[root@mrak ~]# mdadm --examine --scan
ARRAY /dev/md/0  metadata=1.2 UUID=d3f800db:26de8691:dc0caf45:0f75028b name=mrak.dex.internal:0
ARRAY /dev/md/0  metadata=1.2 UUID=1870fd84:2234e3d4:580f7634:b0b621e7 name=mrak.dex.internal:0

This array is RAID10 comprising 4 Seagate Momentus XT 750GB disks. The active RAID's UUID is d3f800db:26de8691:dc0caf45:0f75028b. Can someone explain to me why am I getting the second ARRAY line?

Also, why I do not see /dev/sdb1, /dev/sde1 and /dev/sde1? Those are all partitions used to build the array, that are of type "Linux raid autodetect".

If I get details for /dev/md/0 I get:

[root@mrak ~]# mdadm --detail /dev/md/0

Can you show mdadm --examine --scan -vvvv command output ? – pdaukintis Feb 27 '13 at 21:04
I can't - destroyed the array and made it again, so the mystery array disappeared. :) – DejanLekic Mar 27 '13 at 13:27
I vote for close hence. – poige May 1 '13 at 5:08
