Description David Milburn 2005-10-24 15:39:22 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050720 Fedora/1.0.6-1.1.fc3 Firefox/1.0.6

Description of problem:
If meta-data tag exists on disk, dmraid will activate it even if it is a single disk configuration and not a raid array.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot system 
2. Mount device

Actual Results:  Cannot mount device, EBUSY.

mount("/dev/sdd3", "/export/d3", "ext3", MS_RDONLY, 0) = -1 EBUSY (Device or resource busy) 

Expected Results:  Should be able to mount device since dmraid shouldn't activated single disk configuration.

Additional info:

Workaround is to erase meta-data

dmraid -r -E /dev/sdd
