md RAID phantom device?
Yesterday the array failed with two devices showing as faulty. After rebooting from rescue, I was able to force the assembly and start the array and everything looks to be okay as far as the data goes, but when I run:
mdadm --examine /dev/sda3
Raid Level : raid5 Raid Devices : 4 Avail Dev Size : 1448195216 (690.55 GiB 741.48 GB) Array Size : 4344585216 (2071.66 GiB 2224.43 GB) Used Dev Size : 1448195072 (690.55 GiB 741.48 GB) Array Slot : 0 (0, 1, 2, failed, 3) Array State : Uuuu 1 failed
mdadm --detail /dev/md1
Array Size : 2172292608 (2071.66 GiB 2224.43 GB) Used Dev Size : 1448195072 (1381.11 GiB 1482.95 GB) Raid Devices : 4 Total Devices : 4 Active Devices : 4 Working Devices : 4 Failed Devices : 0 Spare Devices : 0
a - 0
b - 1
c - 2
d - 4 (!)
The first number 'Array Size' from examine is twice as big as sit should be based on the output from detail and comparing to twinned server, and why does the 'Array State' and 'Array Slot' from examine indicate there's a 5th device that's not indicated anywhere else?
And how do I fix this?
