Just add --force the to --assemble command.I think I'd assemble from only 3 drives, sdh, sdf and sdj, because sdi's event count is so much lower it must be the one that was knocked out first and you probably want to resync onto it (or a fresh drive if it's actually faulty).correct. And that is exactly what "mdadm --assemble --force" will decide too. :-) It will assemble from h, f, j and exclude i.
Ah - I didn't know it was clever enough to do that, I had assumed that if you forced all the drives they'd all be marked up-to-date.
What should I do if I had 3 different event counts (like this case) all fairly close to each other (unlike this case) and I really did want to force them all, avoiding a resync?
