I just upgraded my box to 14.04 and on bootup I got a message, that my RAID devices can't be mounted automatically so I chose to skip it and work through it after boot time. Now booted up, A mount -a gives me:

$ sudo mount -a
[sudo] password for reg: 
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/md0,
       missing codepage or helper program, or other error
       In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
       dmesg | tail  or so

mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/md1,
       missing codepage or helper program, or other error
       In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
       dmesg | tail  or so

$

while my mdadm.conf looks like:

$ cat /etc/mdadm/mdadm.conf
# mdadm.conf
#
# Please refer to mdadm.conf(5) for information about this file.
#

# by default (built-in), scan all partitions (/proc/partitions) and all
# containers for MD superblocks. alternatively, specify devices to scan, using
# wildcards if desired.

just quickly started gparted to check if all my dirves show up and fair enough, my partitions 6 & 7 show up just fine on drives sdb and sdc. Also, seems like mdadm is running just fine:

$ ps ax | grep mdadm
 1945 ?        Ss     0:00 /sbin/mdadm --monitor --pid-file /run/mdadm/monitor.pid --daemonise --scan --syslog
 7869 pts/8    S+     0:00 grep --color=auto mdadm
$

what could be my problem here, I don't quite follow:

$ dmesg | tail

        953859MiB  953870MiB  10.3MiB              Free Space

$

So how do I get my array abck up and running? I have some crucial data on these disks and I thought it was safwe with the RAID 1 array...
