mdadm Linux Software RAID auto-detect and assemble RAID Array

mdadm --assemble --scan

unused devices:

The only strange thing is that the drives were all renamed to something high, md125,126 and 127 when I originally created them as 0,1,2

What if you don't want to assemble the array?

You can just scan like this

mdadm -D -s

ARRAY /dev/md/diaghost05102010:2 metadata=1.2 name=diaghost05102010:2 UUID=d851091d:3d109a17:921ab0e1:3a465899
ARRAY /dev/md/diaghost05102010:1 metadata=1.2 name=diaghost05102010:1 UUID=f841529d:a434b994:6f27c55b:64f4ef7d
ARRAY /dev/md/diaghost05102010:0 metadata=1.2 name=diaghost05102010:0 UUID=cba74a1f:e1c83abe:1ea30dc3:cee425bd

To see the details of a specific array just do this:

mdadm -D /dev/md/diaghost05102010:2
