I'm sorry to bother you during holidays.
I encountered a strange problem installing AlmaLinux 9.1 on a RAID1
(MDADM) with the current configuration:
- /boot/efi on md125
- swap on md126
- / on md127
disks are 2 SSD MLC Type.
After the installation, if I reboot the system I get:
"md: md125 stopped" (it is printed many times like in a loop)
"systemd-shutdown: Not all MD devices stopped, 1 left
Stopping MD Devices
Stopping MD /dev/md125 (9:125)"
and the system hangs on this loop until I cut the power.
I encountered this issue on my Workstation with Asus Prime Z490-A /
I tried with another workstation that runs on Asus Prime Z370-A / i7
8700K, to exclude bad SATA controller and bad cables.
Also on the second workstation the problem is found.
I tried to replicate this using 9.0 ISO. The problem does not occur
until I update to 9.1
I tried also with 8.7. No problem here.
I tried also RockyLinux 9.1 and got the same problem but with different
"block device autoconfig is deprecated and will removed"
"blkdev_get_no_open: 270 callbacks suppressed."
To stop the machine I need to cut the power.
I tried also Debian 11.5 without problems.
So seems that the problem is 9.1 related. Actually I can't test the same
with RHEL 9.1 but probably the problem will occour also on RHEL 9.1
There is a way to fix this or I should wait an upgrade?
Thank you in advance.
