mdadm mail with software RAID
I have a nice bootable software raid1 set-up and would like to run mdadm for the monitor and mail feature. As a test I did the following from an xterm:
# mdadm --monitor --scan --daemonise --mail=root@localhost --delay=600 /dev/md0 /dev/md1.
I did not use a adadm.conf.
1 - I expected to see a daemon running but saw none - so what did I do wrong?
2 - Is there an *easy* way to confirm that mdadm is working?
3 - What is the best way to get this started at boot?
Thanks for any comments.
