Fwd: grub-probe seems to be having problems

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

Hi Neil,

I think this might be the message that was referred to.  I was hoping I might peak someone's interest in checking out this discussion on grub-devel.  I would be very happy to see GRUB work better with mdadm, not get in the middle of a discussion I barely understand.  Unfortunately, I only know enough to be dangerous... :-)

The thing is: raid_disks = 2 in your metadata. I don't know how this
could be correct or how you could land with such a config.

@md: The problem is following: Lennart has a raid 1 on 3 disks, however
raid_disks in sdd2 is 2 and dev_roles contains only [0, 1, -1, -1, ...],
dev_number is 0

sda2 and sdb2 contain proper raid_disks=3, dev_roles=[0,1,2,-1,-1,..]
and dev_number= 0 respectively 1. It looks to me as a seriously damaged
metadata but apparently mdadm has no problem
@Lennart: did you dd one disk to another or done something like this?
