Subject: Broken raid with 12.2 upgrade
Date: Friday, October 12, 2012, 06:06:33 PM

I have 3 simple arrays, each with 2 partitions - sda1/sdb1, sda2/sdb2,
sda3/sdb3. The first pair is for /boot, the second root, the third /home.

After upgrading to 12.2 from DVD, at boot the stock 3.4.6 kernel throws this
message, once for each partition:

failed to executed /sbin/mdadm --incremental /dev/sda1 --offroot

The arrays are still mountable and accessible after the system comes up.

However, when I attempt to boot into the arrays (I have more than one instance
of suse on the machine, the production instance uses the arrays), the root
cannot be mounted and the boot fails. In this case the kernel throws this
message, again for each of the 6 partitions:

Invalid raid superblock magic on sda1
sda1 does not have a valid v0.90 superblock, not importing

Anyone have a suggestion as to what is the problem? Previously I was using a
3.0.3 kernel with 11.4, and it still works fine with the arrays.

Thanks in advance.
