Description Adam Cetnerowski 2008-01-03 07:45:41 EST
Description of problem:
When RH is installed and boots from a RAID 1 configuration, RAID does not activate.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL5.1b RC2 x86_64

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHEL5 on RAID 1 device
2. Boot the OS
3. Execute command dmraid -ay to activate raid
Actual results:
device-mapper: table: 253:0: mirror: Device lookup failure
device-mapper: ioctl: error adding target to table

Expected results:
RAID activates properly

The script inside initrd can't either "create" the raid-device when using dff1-raid-device. Installation RHEL5 works fine but no RAID after installation. :(

Problem does not reproduce in RHEL5.2
