Mount RAID partitions

ESET SysRescue Live recognizes and mounts RAID partitions automatically. However, if for any reason your disk partition is not available in  ESET SysRescue Live for scanning, complete the steps below to mount the partition.

Software RAID (mdam) in Linux

Run the following commands from the Root Terminal window. Click the system menu system_menu_button in the bottom left corner, then click Accessories and select Root Terminal.

1.Detect RAID arrays by superblocks and generate a configuration file:

mdadm --examine --scan >/etc/mdadm/mdadm.conf

 

2.Assemble arrays based on generated configuration file:

mdadm --assemble --scan

 

3.Use the command below to list the available disk partitions:

fdisk -l

 

4.Mount the RAID array:

mount /dev/md<number> /path/to/mount/point

 
Where /path/to/mount/point can be for example /media/md1.

 

Hardware RAID in Linux

For RAID hardware, the RAID controller should automatically assemble the array and present it to the linux kernel as block devices.

Run the following commands from the Root Terminal window. Click system menu system_menu_button in the bottom left corner, then navigate to Accessories and select Root Terminal.

1.Use the command below to list the available disk partitions:

fdisk -l

2.If the command above does not list your RAID partitions,  use any of the commands below to determine the RAID  controller used:

a)lspci -knn | grep -i 'raid'

b)dmesg | grep -i 'raid'

3.Search online for the drivers of your RAID controller, install the drivers and attempt to list the available raid partitions again.
