View Full Version : [ubuntu] RAID drives to new bow unknown order

September 26th, 2012, 08:10 PM
I had a house fire, server was fine but the cleaning co decided to dispose of it for me, after I asked them to call before doing anything with it, drives were in order not labeled. They gave me the drives in a box lol.

I have all the drives and they test fine, just not sure how to guess the correct order of a six drive raid on a new MB. The mirrored OS drives are working, typing on them right now, ie two down six drives to go.

Is there an mdadm config file for the array with serial numbers and designations for the drives? etc...

Was as easy as plugging the drives in, didn't know raid info was stored on all drives.
