Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 122691
/etc/rc.d/init.d/mdmpd does [FAILED] on a startup
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:42 EST
Description of problem:
By default 'mdadm' is installed and its startup service turned on.
This results in the following message every time a machine is started
Starting mdmpd: Kernel md module does not support events
This message is rather misleading. That modules possibly does
support events but it does not exist.
How about abusing a modprobe a bit and adding close to the top
of /etc/rc.d/init.d/mdmpd something like that:
modprobe --show-depends md >/dev/null 2>&1 || exit 0
Hm, that would prevent mdmpd from running also for a custom
kernel with md support "built-in"; but maybe then its existence
can be checked by other means (through '/proc/mdstat')?
Or I am mistaken here and mdmpd attempts to do something
which it cannot? md driver is reported in dmesg:
md: md driver 0.90.0 MAX_MD_DEVS=256, MD_SB_DISKS=27
md: Autodetecting RAID arrays.
md: autorun ...
md: ... autorun DONE.
If the action is infeasible then why /etc/rc.d/init.d/mdmpd
is not bailing out silently?
