RAID 1 without SDA - possible?

20-06-2010, 21:28
A quick question. Is it possible to boot the server that uses RAID1/mdadm without SDA1 in MD1?

I'm not sure about it but i think not. The server wasn't booting - then i run rescue, added SDA1 back to MD1. Rebooted - nothing.

Then i run vKVM (very nice tool BTW), SDA1 rebuild was finished and the serwer wake up normally.

Is it possible that this was caused because i updated SDA1 partition table before the reboot (removed it from the RAID, tho)
