Re: Help with ES v3 Raid1 (Mirror)




I tried your process again and used 0 0 in fstab before the first reboot
to disable fsck at boot. still no go. I am getting confused. Here is
what I can do before rebooting. 

I did step 1 to step 8. I then use the Disk Administrator to mount the
device. I ran df -H and got /dev/md0 36g 34mb 34g 1% .mnt/md0. I can
write a text file to it and read it. I unmount the device and the text
file and lost-found folder disappear as expected. I then re-mount it and
my text file and lost-fount are back. everything seems to work as
normal. When I use the Disk Administrator tool it uses the fstab to
mount, so I expect it to be alright. I reboot. When I get back into
XWindows, I run df -H, no mounted MD0 device anymore. I then go to the
Disk Administrator tool and try to mount from the fstab and get "Wrong
fs type or bad superblock on /dev/md0"

Please help keep a fellow administrator keep his teeth...!

thanks
