Re: Help with ES v3 Raid1 (Mirror)



I have tried this all morning without success. I also tried making the
raid device using sdb1 and sdc1 as oppesed to sdb and sdc. Here is what
I am doing in exact steps because sometimes one little thing can mess
things up.

1- Fdisk sdb and create a primary partition with full size of drive and
set type to FD (Linux Raid). write and exit
2- same as step 1 but for sdc.
3- run the command to make raid device. "mdadm --create /dev/md0
--level=1 --raid-devices=2 /dev/sdb1 /dev/sdc1
4- mkfs.ext3 /dev/md0 (completes with noe errors)
5- e2fsck -f /dev/md0 (works with no errors)
6- add line in fstab
/dev/md0   /home/apps  ext3    defaults  1 2

reboot and get
   FSCK.ext3 /dev/mdo the superblock could not be read or does not
describe a correct EXT2 Filesystem.......bla bla and asks to run E2FSCK
-B 8193 

e2fsck: invalid arguement whilt trying to open /dev/md0

thanks

Marc
