anaconda for upgrade won't assemble a half-full raid-1 array
Last modified: 2014-03-16 23:08:41 EDT
Description of problem:
Unbeknownst to me, half of my two-drive raid-1 (a PV for a LVM array) was kicked
out a while back.
When I went to upgrade, anaconda failed after choosing the proper partition,
saying that it couldn't mount my LVM on /storage - upon investigation, it never
assembled the RAID correctly.
This may be intentional - in any case, after fixing the array, it upgraded fine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
We don't do partial array activation and haven't in general. So this is the
right failure mode. When we redo partitioning, we might look at partial arrays
again, but they still seem like a bad idea to me
