Hi

After upgrading kernel to 4.4.6 I noticed the below in dmesg, I rebooted to previous kernel and it also appears.

Don't know WHEN it appeared first, I don't often read dmesg, but it wasn't always there.

Question: is it something I need to worry about? Or how do I fix? Could not find relevant answer in forums.

Drives are sda = boot, root, plain ext3, and swap.
sdb1,sdc1 == md1 == 2 mirrored drives with /home

Drives work fine, nightly health check is clean.

Code:

iandoug,

Code:
[    2.098233] md: Autodetecting RAID arrays.
[    2.114311] md: invalid raid superblock magic on sdb1
[    2.114515] md: sdb1 does not have a valid v0.90 superblock, not importing!
[    2.134034] md: invalid raid superblock magic on sdc1
[    2.134269] md: sdc1 does not have a valid v0.90 superblock, not importing!


That message has been there for as long as you have had raid autodetect in your kernel.
The key phrase here is "does not have a valid v0.90 superblock". That's correct.

mdadm:
/dev/md1:
        Version : 1.2
The raid superblock is actually Version 1.2

Its a harmless warning. You probably have mdadm in a runlevel and that will assemble your raid set.

Hi Neddy

Thanks for the reassurance :-)

Not sure where mdadm gets loaded, I don't see it in the list but maybe it's camouflaged.

           vixie-cron |      default                 
               xinetd |      default       


I actually checked dmesg because I saw a message about some group.sh (or something along those lines) not running/loading, but can't find it in dmesg now.

oh wait, maybe I need to reboot to the new kernel to see... let me try that.

Thanks, Ian

iandoug,

Well, mdadm is assembling your raid sometime before localmount runs or /home would not be mounted.
Its clearly not the kernel. mdadm --assemble can be run as a command. It need not be a service.
The mdadm service will send email about state changes in the raid. e.g. a drive being kicked out.

If you have an initrd, mdadm can be called there. I have to do that on my main box as root is on lvm on top of raid5.

By way of example, my dmesg contains, to bring up my /boot raid1
Code:
[    3.332964] md: md125 stopped.
[    3.334219] md: bind<sdb1>
[    3.334786] md: bind<sdc1>
[    3.335432] md: bind<sdd1>
[    3.336054] md: bind<sda1>
[    3.336931] md/raid1:md125: active with 4 out of 4 mirrors
You should find something similar in dmesg too.

Code:

trooper ~ # dmesg | grep raid
[    1.791536] md: raid1 personality registered for level 1
[    2.002526] md: If you don't use raid, use raid=noautodetect
[    2.022397] md: invalid raid superblock magic on sdb1
[    2.044121] md: invalid raid superblock magic on sdc1
[   11.123138] md/raid1:md1: active with 2 out of 2 mirrors


This stuff is all one step away from black magic for me... :-)

Thanks, Ian
