i have 4 discs i want to use as riad - i select fd in cfdisk and make the raid according to the raid howto and all seems ok - it doesnt seem to be building the arry though, if my memory serves me from last time as soon as i made and started the arry it said it was building the arry

steps i took

1. fdisked all drives to fd
2. mdadm --create --verbose /dev/md0 --level=0 --raid-devices=4 /dev/sda1 /dev/sdb1 /dev/sdac1 /dev/sdd1
3. added ARRAY /dev/md0 level=raid0 num-devices=4 UUID=1a082597:b93e0ebd:c8a5f07f:699e61c4 - to /etc/mdadm.conf
4. formated the arry and rebooted.

it starts when the pc starts (i can see that from looking when it boots and from logs)

out put of mdadm -D /dev/md0 - shows

/dev/md0:

Number Major Minor RaidDevice State
0 8 1 0 active sync /dev/sda1
1 8 17 1 active sync /dev/sdb1
2 8 33 2 active sync /dev/sdc1
3 8 49 3 active sync /dev/sdd1

i notice it shows clean so is it a case that its built it transparently ? and i have nothing to worry about

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
