mdadm "No arrays found in config file or automatically"
Posted on 2011-04-25
Folks, I have an old Pentium III running Ubuntu Server 8.04 LTS. All running great with a RAID1 array but now its time to upgrade the server.
This morning I removed & installed the same PCI RAID card into the new Server and attached the two SATA RAID1 drives. When I reboot the server fdisk -l sees the drives OK. When I run mdadm --assemble --scan I get the message "No arrays found in config file or automatically" ... What would your next step be to solve this problem ?
PS I have made sure no mdadm.config exists !! Should also have mentioned new OS is Ubtunu server 10.10 LTS
