Fedora Update Notification
2011-08-26 18:29:26

Name        : mdadm
Product     : Fedora 15
Version     : 3.2.2
Release     : 9.fc15
URL         : http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/utils/raid/mdadm/
Summary     : The mdadm program controls Linux md devices (software RAID arrays)
Description :
The mdadm program is used to create, manage, and monitor Linux MD (software
RAID) devices.  As such, it provides similar functionality to the raidtools
package.  However, mdadm is a single program, and it can perform
almost all functions without a configuration file, though a configuration
file can be used to help with some common tasks.

Update Information:

This update fixes two bugs in readding an existing, but removed, raid device into a running raid array and it attempts to clean up and improve the udev incremental assembly rules.  In particular, the udev rules should now support A) nested md devices, B) md devices on top of lvm/dm device, and C) md devices on top of multipath devices.  This update should also resolve the problem where some imsm arrays refused to assemble due to unused attribute bits.

If any of your md devices are needed for your root partition, then in order to test this you must first remake your initramfs using dracut and then reboot using the new initramfs image.
