comment How do I fix my server to boot properly after removing / adding a drive on my mdadm software RAID
A mdadm --misc --zero-superblock /dev/sde and mdadm --misc --zero-superblock /dev/sde1 totally fixed the problem. I didn’t know that RAID arrays were auto-discovered at boot from superblocks. Thx

Add some clarification about RAID array (data partition, not system) + put some text in bold

No, I have to try that ! alxgomz suggested it too.

Oh sorry. Yes, it’s a data partition but server will enter into recovery/initramfs mode. That‘s why I said boot’s broken but I agree, it’s not quite clear...

Yes, I tried to run update-initramfs and updated grub but that didn’t changed anything. Also, I tried to specify each partition (but by name) in my mdadm.conf but I’ve got still the same error at boot and same bind<sde> in dmesg. Where does that comes from ? I’ll try to specify them by uuid but I had no hope.
