I am running Redhat Fedora Core (2.4.22-1.2199.nptl) on a computer that is set up with a raid 5. I have a boot drive (hda) and 3 drives in the raid (hdb, hdc, hdd) hdb has failed. The raid will not run in degraded mode. When you start the system it doesn't recognize the raid.
Contents of the raidtab file:
parity algorithym left-symmetric
chunk size 32
I have raidtools and do not have mdadm. I couldn't find mdadm for this core
mdadm looks like the way to go, but I need the old school way of bringing the array back up and setting hdb into fault mode. My clients need to be able to use the server until I get a replacement drive to install.
