Superblocks - MD0 or SDA1?

Hi there

I need to restore a superblock on a RAID5 software array. But I'm not sure if I'm meant to restore it from MD0 or a device such as SDA1?

From what I read, superblocks are stored on each drive, but I'm not sure if this is changed when a software raid is in use.

Hi wel-come to LQ.

Which linux distro you are using?
How you examine your superblock corrupt?

Please provide some more info.

cat /etc/mdadm.conf
cat /proc/mdstat
