Description Mike Bird 2001-11-10 00:28:08 EST
Description of Problem: Change in rc.sysinit in RH7.2 skips starting
/dev/mdN devices marked noauto in fstab, but fsck still checks them
... and bombs
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): initscriipts-6.40-1

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a RAID (happens to be RAID-5 here but I don't think it matteers)
2. mke2fs the RAID, add it to /etc/fstab and mark it noauto
3. reboot

Actual Results: rc.sysinit skips starting that /dev/mdN because it is
noauto, but fsck tries it anyway and bombs

Expected Results: Previous to RH7.2, the RAID start was not skipped
and the server rebooted and I didn't have to drive to the next county
to fix it  :-O

Closing bugs on older, no longer supported, releases. Apologies for any lack of

With mdadm, this isn't as much of an issue in this case; previously, the RAID
startup code did change post-7.2, so the issue may have been fixed in the meantime.
