Re: [dm-devel] Q: md-RAID1 creation with I/O error (attempt to access beyond end of device)



Hi Ulrich,

I dont think thats going to work, arent you suppose to create the raid with xdisk, than create LVM on top of the raid?

Hi,

not an iSCSI question, but maybe here's the right audience: I had sucessfully created a RAID1 using mdadm, multipath, iSCSI and some SAN storage on SLES10 SP3+Updates on x86_64. When I tried to do the same thing on a comparable machine, the RAID could not be created, because something tried to access the disk at a bad position. I reapeated the attempt with another set of disks of the same size, and it also failed.

Details:
# mdadm --verbose --create /dev/md5 --raid-devices=2 --level=raid1 --bitmap=internal --assume-clean /dev/mapper/EVA1_L232_host05 /dev/mapper/EVA2_L232_host05
mdadm: /dev/mapper/EVA1_L232_host05 appears to be part of a raid array:
   level=raid1 devices=2 ctime=Thu Oct 21 12:26:18 2010
mdadm: /dev/mapper/EVA2_L232_host05 appears to be part of a raid array:
   level=raid1 devices=2 ctime=Thu Oct 21 12:26:18 2010
mdadm: size set to 31457216K
Continue creating array? y

"blockdev --getsize" reports "62914560" for each LUN being used.
