Debian 8: mdadm mail test problem

Postby ^rooker » Mon Feb 20, 2017 1:43 am

I've setup my /etc/mdadm/mdadm.conf to send mails to my email-address if problems with the SoftRAID occur.
According to documentation found online, the following command should cause mdadm to send a test e-mail:
Code: Select all
$ mdadm --monitor --scan --test

But in my case it replies:
mdadm: Only one autorebuild process allowed in scan mode, aborting


The command was wrong.
Use this one instead:
Code: Select all
$ mdadm --monitor --scan --test --oneshot

Another mystery solved! :D

Jumping out of an airplane is not a basic instinct. Neither is breathing underwater. But put the two together and you're traveling through space!
