Thanks for the replies and suggestions.
My problem was that I'd used the disks in previous RAID tests
last spring, and had enough residue on the disks that things were
A set of "dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdX" to wipe the opening section
of the disk fixed that problem, and then I could create the RAID
disk-set as I'd expect with:
/sbin/mdadm --create --verbose /dev/md0 --level=raid5 \
--raid-devices=4 /dev/sda /dev/sdb /dev/sdc /dev/sdd
Now I'm playing with putting data on the disks, doing nasty
things like removing disks and dd to see if I really understand
how to do the recovery part of this exercise.
