Raid5 not assembled after boot
This is the first time I've played with a software raid and it looks
like I'm missing a part.
The raid5 consists of three AHCI 1TB drives (sdb1,sdc1,sdd1) assembled
as /dev/md1 and formatted ext3. The raid is just a data drive mounted
Here's the array line from /etc/mdadm.conf:
ARRAY /dev/md1 level=raid5 num-devices=3
After boot, /dev/md1 does not exist.
I can run:
mdadm --assemble /dev/md1 /dev/sdb1 /dev/sdc1 /dev/sdd1
which starts /dev/md1 then I can mount the raid fine.
I've tried adding:
to /etc/mdadm.conf, no observable effect.
/etc/init.d/mdadm is in the boot rc level and is running after boot (I
was expecting this to start the array).
Looking thru dmesg and /var/log/messages, it looks like there are no
attempts to start the array until I manually try.
Any hints on what I'm missing?
