Mount 1/2 a UFS software RAID-1 on Debian?
I dug an old FreeBSD (4.4 BSD) machine out of my attic the other day -- it has a pair of UFS disks in there and they've been mirrored in software. Embarrassingly, I no longer have the root or any other password on that machine -- which means that I can't get to some files I'd like to. Is it possible to mount one of the partitions from half the UFS mirror onto one of my Debian machines? I've tried
mount -r -t ufs -o ufstype=44bsd /dev/sda7 /media/usbdrive
Yes, the drive is currently mounted in an external enclosure with USB connectivity.
The error I get from executing the above is "ufs_read_super: bad magic number". There's no more help in dmesg, kern.log, etc.
I'm running Debian etch, kernel 184.108.40.206
I know this is a pretty esoteric problem; any takers? Thanks in advance.
