Raid5


Hi gurus,

Is it possible to construct a RAID-5 without even
editing /etc/mdadm.conf file. This is what I have done,
#mdadmin --create /dev/md0 --level=5 --raid-devices=3 --spare-
devices=1 /dev/sda1 /dev/sdb1 /dev/sdc1 /dev/sdd1

#mkfs -t ext3 /dev/md0

#mkdir /mnt/docs

#mount /dev/md0 /mnt/docs

and then I have edited /etc/fstab entry to give it permanancy.

Regards,
Subhankar

mdadm doesn't need a config file at all. it is all implicit based on the data in each filesystem when the md driver scans for suitable devices.
