Duplicate MD device names in conf file were found

April 4th, 2012

Just a quick note because I couldn’t  find much info about this on the web.

After installing Ubuntu 12.04 and creating a simple RAID 1 mirror everything looked great, until after a reboot. I was unable to assemble the array with an error message like the above. It turned out I had to remove the package mdraid and it magically started working again. Hope it helps someone.

Thanks to Jonik for the info.
