I have an existing /home RAID1 consisting of /dev/sdb1 and /dev/sdc1.
My root drive failed and have replaced. Slack14.1-64 is installed on the new /dev/sda & is running fine.
Trying to assemble the raid so I can setup /home again, but it errors.
So just looking for ideas as to what Iím doing wrong. No raid setup or running.
Running this command:
mdadm --assemble /dev/md0 /dev/sdb1 /dev/sdc1
mdadm: /dev/sdb1 is busy - skipping
mdadm: /dev/sdc1 is busy - skipping
Iím obviously missing a step. The raid disks where in sync before my root drive failed.
Do I need to create the raid again before I assemble? Iíd rather not wipe out my /home data if I can help it.
mdadm --create /dev/md0 --level=mirror --raid-devices=2 /dev/sdb1 /dev/sdc1
mdadm --detail --scan >> /etc/mdadm.conf
Just as a Workstation user thatís new to this as Iíve never had a software raid before, so any advice is appreciated.
