My server that holds all my music, tv shows, etc. stopped booting and after failing to get it running myself, I took it to a place and they reinstalled ubuntu on a different drive. I have 2 other drives in there combined in a RAID 0 that have all the media I want to stream, but I can't figure out how to mount them. I made the RAID with mdadm and I installed mdadm on my pc.

Running sudo fdisk -l gives me this:

The primary GPT table is corrupt, but the backup appears OK, so that will be used.

dev/sdb and dev/sdc are my raided drives, but I can't figure out how to mount them. I've also used the "Discs" app in the desktop and I can see the drives and it says they're in a RAID, but I don't see a single RAID drive I can mount.

I also tried using sudo mdadm --detail with every dev/md# that seems likely I would have used when I maid it but keep getting back "no such file or directory."

What should I do to get my RAID back and mounted?

  • The two disks you’ve identified as being part of a RAID set are different sizes. What type of RAID were you using? JBOD? The error for each is a bit concerning, too … 🤔

So I got it mounted, I just don't know how I managed it. I downloaded and ran the command sudo dmraid -ay. It returned "no raid discs." I walked away for a few hours, didn't reset, and when I opened the Discs app, suddenly my RAID was there and I could mount it by clicking a button. I think the dmraid must have done it, even though it said it didn't find any raid discs.
