Sorry if this has been answered elsewhere, but I didn't find anything in my forum searches.
I have been running Fedora 12 since its release without issue with a hardware RAID1 of two 1.5TB drives and a root volume of 500GB on a separate drive. Last night, after rebooting my machine, I was greeted with the following:
fsck.ext4: Unable to resolve 'UUID=<snip>78' [FAILED]
and the option of shell access as root. After logging in, I ran blkid with these results:
/dev/sdc1: UUID="<snip>86" TYPE="ext4"
/dev/sdc2: UUID="<snip>e7" TYPE="swap"
and cat /etc/fstab:
UUID=<snip>86 / ext4 defaults 1 1
UUID=<snip>78 /storage ext4 defaults 1 2
UUID=<snip>e7 swap swap defaults 0 0
I take this to mean that when mounting volumes, it can't find my RAID1, but I have no idea where to go from here. I've double-checked all the harddrive connections in my machine, and it feels like all three drives spin up upon boot. The RAID setup accessible at boot still sees both drives and reports no issues. I tried to boot from the Fedora 12 disc and recover, but the only options it gave me were to ignore the problem or format the drives.
Can anyone tell me if there are more commands I could try? If not, how should I go about replacing this disk? I assume that setting up a new disk would be the responsibility of the RAID, not Fedora, but I feel completely clueless at this point.
Hopefully I have given enough information about my situation (and done so clearly!). Thanks in advance for any help. I really appreciate it.
