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):
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
Hmm, how about suggesting this to Neil as upstream maintainer?
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.
