You don't need to rename the raidtab, mdadm doesn't use it. You should
be able to do a
mdadm -A --run /dev/md1 /dev/hde1 /dev/hdf1
Thus spake John Cole (JohnC at LGEFCU.org):
> Yes I have mdadm installed.
> raiddev /dev/md1
> raid-level 1
> nr-raid-disks 2
> nr-spare-disks 0
> chunk-size 4
> persistent-superblock 1
> device /dev/hde1
> raid-disk 0
> device /dev/hdf1
> raid-disk 1
> Should I rename /etc/raidtab and see if mdadm will work by itself?

These are MY OPINIONS ALONE. I speak for no-one else.
Life is not a destination, it's a journey.
Microsoft produces 15 car pileups on the highway.
Don't stop traffic to stand and gawk at the tragedy.
