Comment 3 Michal Jaegermann 2006-10-17 13:42:33 EDT
To add to comment #2: a simpler way, after you discovered with
'dmraid -r' that some devices have spurious RAID signatures (drives
were possibly "recycled", for example) is to do something like
'dmraid -r -E /dev/sdb' replacing, obviously, "/dev/sdb" with names
of devices so affected to erase signatures (metadata).

See also bug 176623 for another instance of troubles caused by
unexpected signatures.
