Subject: cannot add device to partitioned raid6 array
Date: Sat, 31 Mar 2007 23:44:35 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <460EF263.7020505@gmx.at> (raw)

hi list!

in short:
I created a partitioned raid6 array with 2 missing drives. Now, I want to add a device. It fails with:
flockmock ~ # mdadm -a /dev/md_d4 /dev/sdb2
mdadm: add new device failed for /dev/sdb2 as 4: Invalid argument

I think it is the same problem as in:
http://marc.info/?l=linux-raid&m=115316147716600&w=2



details:
kernel 2.6.20.4
mdadm-2.6.1
the raid6 array:

flockmock ~ # mdadm --detail /dev/md_d4

flockmock ~ # mdadm -E /dev/sdb2
