you have a bad raid system ...
you lose one partition and your entire raid disks can be toast
if /dev/md2 is /boot ...
- why do you need /boot ... /boot is NOT needed in
most all applications unless you have whacky things
like msdos(windows) at partition1
- or that you have old bios(hw) that cannot talk in lba16,
lba24, lba32, lba48, ...
if it is /boot.. you did NOT configure grub/lilo/syslinux properly
and your current config files are wrong
it will NOT boot properly whan the other disk dies
why do you need so many raid devices /??
