Exclamation RAID devices changed their names

I created some raid devices like /dev/md1, /dev/md0 and etc, but after reboot they become /dev/md127, /dev/md128, why?

Not much on raid, but udev assigns this stuff automatically when you reboot. Usually, there are two ways to address this. I am assuming one of these will be appropriate for raid. In fstab you can assign things with UUID instead of the /dev/sda1 or whatever. Another way is to write a udev rule that will instruct udev to always give your device the same name. I feel sure one of these approaches is what you need.


device, raid
