NAME

       mdassemble - assemble MD devices aka Linux Software Raid.



SYNOPSIS

       mdassemble



DESCRIPTION

       mdassemble  is  a  tiny program that can be used to assemble MD devices
       inside an initial ramdisk (initrd) or initramfs, it is meant to replace
       the in-kernel automatic raid detection and activation.  It can be built
       statically and  linked  against  lightweight  libc  alternatives,  like
       dietlibc, klibc or uClibc.



USAGE

       Invoking  mdassemble  has  the same effect as invoking mdadm --assemble
       --scan.



OPTIONS

       There are no options to mdassemble.



FILES

   /etc/mdadm.conf
       The config file lists which devices may be scanned to see if they  con-
       tain  MD  super  block,  and  gives identifying information (e.g. UUID)
       about known MD arrays.  See mdadm.conf(5) for more details.

       mdassemble supports all configuration parameters defined in  mdadm.conf
       with  the exception of auto= which is supported only if mdadm was built
       with the -DMDASSEMBLE_AUTO define.
