md0 ext3 superblock file system destroyed!


I have SUSE Linux 9.0 on a DELL server thatīs quite new. It has 2 identical SCSI disks.

I was using it mainly for internet access: IP tables, DNS, proxy.

I had a partion for /boot some swap space a couple of other partitions and 2 identical partitions for md0 as /

My system used to get slow sometimes and I had cron going defunct. Things worked well when I killed cron and syslogd every so often.

This afternoon I couldnīt use my BIND: it didnīt respond to queries, I even went to runlevel 1 and back to 3 and nothing.

In level 1 I tried fsck and got something about a missing superblock.

I tried to reboot and got a missing superblock for md0 and a kernel panic.

I went with SUSE CD to a console and tried fsck -y on the /sda3 and /sdb3 that compose my /dev/md0 and it ran a long time with both.

Afterwards I mounted them but only got some #[xxxxxxxx] files that had nothing on a lost+found.

I will reinstall the system but Iīm concerned since I had a RAID and still lost all the info!!!

Could somebody shed some light on what could have hapened!!!
