Can't mount newly created RAID 5

  • Hi guys,
    I just came back to OMV from using Win Server 2012 for a while. I am really looking forward to using your NAS solution again, once I get it to work.
    This little project started tuesday evening, when I first noticed one of my WD Green 3TB disks had one of its SATA connectors broken. I was in tears, trying to figure out if I can fix the plastic piece of shit that fell off the god damn disk.


    Since wednesday, I've tried to stuff my other three disks into a RAID 5. Each time it's finished syncing, I try to mount it and I end up getting an error message reading the following:


    Failed to mount '43312270-ea1d-4006-9aa5-b7c33547663e': mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/md0, missing codepage or helper program, or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so


    Error #6000:

    This has happened each time I've re-created the RAID. This is the procedure: Install OMV, wipe data disks, create RAID, wait for it to finish, mount md0 filesystem, rinse and repeat.


    What is wrong with my filesystem and how can I fix it?
    Thanks and have a nice weekend!

  • So, I found a similar thread where a few requests of command output was posted.

    Not sure what other info might be required

  • Tried Ryecoaaron's option:

    Code
    dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/md0 bs=512 count=10000
    mkfs.ext4 /dev/md0


    and then
    mount /dev/md0


    I had to delete the missing md0 FS in the OMV GUI but then, after a refresh, I could see the new FS and mount it.
    BLKID now shows no EXT_JOURNAL information and the FS has no label. Is this something I have to/can add?

  • A filesystem doesn't have to have a label but you can change it with e2label /dev/md0 "newlabel". Post the output of: dumpe2fs -h /dev/md0

  • That worked perfectly. Thanks!
