Fedora Update Notification
2013-02-08 01:08:33

Name        : mdadm
Product     : Fedora 18
Version     : 3.2.6
Release     : 14.fc18
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:

- changed mdmon-offroot at .service to mdmon at .service
- deconstruct loop devices also on shutdown

To test, you will have to have root on an IMSM raid array and you will have to run:
