NAME

       raid0run - starts up old (superblock-less) RAID0/LINEAR arrays


SYNOPSIS

       raid0run  [--configfile]  [--version]  [--force]            [--upgrade]
       [-acvfuv] </dev/md?>+




DESCRIPTION

       raid0run sets up a set of block devices into a single RAID0 array.   It
       looks  in  its  configuration  file for the md devices mentioned on the
       command line, and initializes those arrays.  raid0run  only  works  for
       RAID0  and  LINEAR devices, it’s ment as a compatibility/migration com-
       mand for arrays created with old mdtools.

       Note that initializing RAID devices with the wrong  RAID  configuration
       file might destroy all data on the consituent devices! RAID arrays with
       superblocks are much safer and are auto-started by the kernel..



OPTIONS

       -c, --configfile filename
              Use filename as the configuration file (/etc/raidtab is used  by
              default).


       -a, --all
              Starts  up  all nonpersistent RAID0 and LINEAR arrays defined in
              raidtab.  It skips all persistent  or  non-RAID0/LINEAR  arrays.
              This  switch  is  handy  to  be  used in startup scripts for old
              installations.


       -h, --help
              Displays a short usage message, then exits.


       -V, --version
              Displays a short version message, then exits.



NOTES

       The raidtools are derived from the  md-tools  and  raidtools  packages,
       which  were  originally  written by Marc Zyngier, Miguel de Icaza, Gadi
       Oxman, Bradley Ward Allen, and Ingo Molnar.



BUGS

       no known bugs.
