Description Bernd Bartmann 2003-06-06 12:27:36 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1)

Description of problem:
Red Hat 8.0 and 9 now ship with mdadm. Service mdmonitor is activated by 
default but will never be run as there is no MAILADDR specified 
in /etc/mdadm.conf. I propose to include
into /etc/mdadm.conf so that at least root gets an information when there is a 
problem with the RAID devices.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create an MD device
2. service mdmonitor start
3. look for an mdadm process

Still no comment from Red Hat on this issue for Severn Beta1

Comment 2 Michael K. Johnson 2003-09-10 19:59:39 UTC
Hmm, how about suggesting this to Neil as upstream maintainer?

Comment 3 Bernd Bartmann 2003-09-10 20:18:18 UTC
Done. I've added you to CC in the mail I just sent to Neil. Nonetheless until it
is "fixed" upstream it should be very easy to create a simple patch.

This was done some time ago.  Closing.
