@Paul, Ah, I see! The component drives in a RAID-1 array have the _same_ UUID, so I would assume that a line in /etc/mdadm.conf such as: ARRAY /dev/md0 UUID=d3176595:06cb3677:46406ca7:d12d146f would identify _both_ component drives. This is what the output of mdadm --examine --brief --scan --config=partitions would imply. I'll try this. I'm not fond of UUID's. They're hard to read and impossible to copy by hand without making mistakes! -- Lindsay Haisley | "We have met the enemy, and it is us." FMP Computer Services | 512-259-1190 | -- Pogo |
