NAME

       mdrun - autodetect and activate all raid partitions

SYNOPSIS

       mdrun detects all (or named) raid partitions and activates them.

       Without arguments: autodetect all RAID partitions and activate MDs.

       mdrun LIST

       mdrun [ DEVDIR ] NUMBER UUID [ NUMBER UUID ...  ]

OPTIONS

       LIST   lists  all  raids in the syntax needed for the number uuid pairs
              the alternative syntax accepts.

       DEVDIR An optional override for the /dev directory.

       NUMBER UUID
              pairs of number, uuids that define a md element to  run.  number
              comes from /dev/md/*.

RETURN VALUE

       Nothing is displayed and mdrun returns 0 on success.

ERRORS

       On error, non-zero is returned, and a diagnostic string is printed.

EXAMPLES

       mdrun.

ENVIRONMENT

       MORERAIDVOLUMES  (list of strings) : additional raid disks to scan, eg.
       loop devices.

NOTES

       If the first argument is a directory, it will be used  as  a  writeable
       temporary directory for device nodes.  mdrun needs mknod to create them
       on-the-fly.

CAVEATS

       Create /dev/fs directory if you have devfs support in the kernel but do
       not  want  to mount it over /dev.  Usage of /dev/fs directory will keep
       mdrun away from /dev.
