Is my Server Dedibox SC Large from online.net using RAID?
Im using debian and when I run "apt-get upgrade" there is a prompt for mdadm and i said yes. then, a blue display came out and i just hit enter.. what I remember, in the box, it written "all"
after that, some error came out.
W: mdadm: /etc/mdadm/mdadm.conf defines no arrays. W: mdadm: no arrays defined in configuration file.
I did some googling and found mdadm are used for RAID.. how can i know if my dedi is using RAID?
referring to [THIS] I can remove mdadm if my server did not use RAID..
I will not reboot my server until I found the solution. Just fear that my server wont boot up again..
btw, "mdadm --device --scan" produce no result
No they do not use RAID, you have a single hybrid SHDD.
ohh.. thank you soo much.. I have not much experiences in using dedi.. so many problems I had to face..
thank you again
This is correct in case of their cheapest servers which indeed come with a single hybrid HDD
But do note that you would get the same result (and errors) regarding mdadm even on their more expensive servers, which come with two HDDs and do use RAID. The reason is that they use hardware RAID, not software RAID created by mdadm.
In that case, mdadm can be uninstalled??
