Default Fwd: QNAP TS-219P upgrade from lenny to squeeze


Message below was sent to debian-arm describing a problem with
upgrading my QNAP TS-219P (armel) from lenny to squeeze.
For this platform it's a major problem as it has no console by default.
I was told that debian-kernel@lists.debian.org and
pkg-mdadm-devel@lists.alioth.debian.org where better point for
answering my original questions. Can anyone answer me? THNX!

Below are the messages generated during upgrade.
W: mdadm: the array /dev/md/0 with UUID 1125740e:0f27573d:802988f7:5090deea
W: mdadm: is currently active, but it is not listed in mdadm.conf. if
W: mdadm: it is needed for boot, then YOUR SYSTEM IS NOW UNBOOTABLE!
W: mdadm: please inspect the output of /usr/share/mdadm/mkconf, compare
W: mdadm: it to /etc/mdadm/mdadm.conf, and make the necessary changes.

I ran /usr/share/mdadm/mkconf and updated the existing mdadm.conf to look like
# mdadm.conf
# Please refer to mdadm.conf(5) for information about this file.

# by default, scan all partitions (/proc/partitions) for MD superblocks.
# alternatively, specify devices to scan, using wildcards if desired.
DEVICE partitions

# auto-create devices with Debian standard permissions
CREATE owner=root group=disk mode=0660 auto=yes

# automatically tag new arrays as belonging to the local system
HOMEHOST <system>

# instruct the monitoring daemon where to send mail alerts
MAILADDR rob.epping@gmail.com

# definitions of existing MD arrays
ARRAY /dev/md0 level=raid1 num-devices=2
ARRAY /dev/md0 UUID=1125740e:0f27573d:802988f7:5090deea

# This file was auto-generated on Sun, 25 Jan 2009 18:17:30 +0100

I'd like to

Subject: QNAP TS-219P upgrade from lenny to squeeze
To: debian-arm@lists.debian.org

Hi list,

Today I decided to upgrade my TS-219P to squeeze. This went reasonably
well. I had a struggle with insserv, rsyslogd and initscripts, but
that is not arm related I guess.

An other problem I had was that my device would not boot anymore after
removal of linux-image-2.6.32-bpo.5-kirkwood.
During the upgrade I got a message from mdadm that UUID of the
raid-set changed. After upgrade and reboot I noticed
linux-image-2.6.32-bpo.5-kirkwood kernel was load instead of
linux-image-2.6.32-5-kirkwood. So I removed the BPO kernel and
rebooted once more.

That's when I needed to make a console cable.
I found that the wrong UUID was in the initrd and after some tweaking
I got everything back to work.

Does anyone on this list know why the UUID would change? And if this
is documented somewhere?

BTW: some more details about my setup:
* 2 identical hard drives. Both with 2 partitions. 1 raid and 1 swap.
* both raid partitions form a raid1
