i just rebooted and unplugged the first drive, nothing worked. i did a linux rescue, and it said i have no linux partitions.

I looked at my /proc/mdstat and here's what it says:

Code:
[root@rs-ylbih284vrrd root]# cat /proc/mdstat
Personalities : [raid1]
read_ahead 1024 sectors
Event: 1
md0 : active raid1 hda2[0]
      78887104 blocks [2/1] [U_]
       
unused devices: <none>
it didnt keep the settings, i think. before, it said md0 : active raid1 hdb2[2] hda[0]

did i mess up?

So then you plugged the drive back in and rebooted to see the above message?

yes. i ran the 'raidhotadd' command again thismorning, rebooted, and it showed up the same, the changes made to /proc/mdstst were not there.

Did you let the resync operation finish?

im not sure what the resync operation is, but if you're referring to what happend when i run 'raidhotadd' then yes, i did. or at least i think it did, i left it overnight and it said in mdstat that it was fine.

i ran "raidhotadd /dev/md0 /dev/hdb1" again, and here's my mdstat:

Code:
Personalities : [raid1]
read_ahead 1024 sectors
Event: 4
md0 : active raid1 hda2[0] hdb1[1](F)
      78887104 blocks [2/1] [U_]
       
unused devices: <none>

is that (F) ok? is there something i nee dot do to keep these settigns? i have a feeling if i reboot, it will just go back. :-/
