RAID related problems

* Likely this should move to a separate TWIKI for managing Ubuntu raid array

/dev/mapper RAID array not found

Background: your system boots into an initramfs shell because your root device does not show up
  • The problem is in fact that the hotplug device does not show up in time and your system boot.
  • In this example root is /dev/mapper/dd1f_ROOT
  • dmraid -ay
  • mkdir /mnt
  • mount /dev/mapper/ddf1_ROOT1 /mnt
  • chroot /mnt
  • mount /proc
  • Fix:
    • Edit /usr/share/initramfs-tools/scripts/local-top/dmraid and change end of file to look like this:
         # for dev in $(dmraid -r -c); do
         #       dmraid-activate $dev
         # done
         sleep 10
         dmraid -ay
  • initramfs-tools -k all -u
