I have a system running ubuntu 13.10, booting from a 50GB SSD. Attached to the motherboard are also three 2TB disks. configured into a 4TB RAID array. After ubuntu boots, I can mount the RAD volume successfully with:
sudo mount /dev/vg1/lv1 /data
after which I can access the files in the array in /data
I am uncertain as to how to get this mounting process to happen automatically during booting, however. I tried the "Disks" GUI program without success.
I have seen posts mentioning how I should edit
mdadm.conf, but I have not seen any really clear instructions regarding exactly what lines to add to either of these files.
I don't remember how the three 2TB disks were setup, formatted, etc. to become a RAID volume. I vaguely recall that both mdadm and Logical Volume Manager were used, but it was a long time ago. So when I see instructions requiring me to know how the disks are formatted, I am stuck. All I really know for sure is that the above command works.
Any pointers to really clear, noob-level instructions for me?
