Problems with mdadm and a usb harddrive.
I have a question that I was hoping someone could help with. I'm
using a RAID5 for storage. 3 disks. However, 2 of the discs are
internal, and 1 is an external usb drive. When I restart the
machine, /dev/sda1 (the usb drive) is never brought back up with the
rest of the drive, and it's in a degraded state. It seems to do this
(off of dmesg) because the usb drive is brought up after the raid5 is
brought up. Is there any way to delay the startup of the raid5 until
after usb drives are seen?
