When you automount a drive in /etc/fstab even if it's not important like an external drive that you only use sometimes and is not required for booting, it will prevent a successfuly boot.
If you disable quiet mode for booting you will see something like below "A start job is running for dev-disk ...."
How do we fix an fstab entry from preventi........
systemd is like the service manager for your Centos and other modern Linux distributions (including Debian/Mint/Ubuntu) allows you to enable services, stop them, restart them, check their status and even reboot your system.
The key commands or arguments you will use with systemctl are the following:
list-units [PATTERN...] List loaded units
Neither the blkid or the UUID internal to mdadm work to automount for some reason in Debian
partprobe doesn't work but was a good suggestion from: http://pato.dudits.net/2008/11/03/special-device-uuidxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx-does-not-exist-especially-with-lvm
mount: special device /dev/disk/by-uuid/431b9b96-29e8f298-e89bd504-7065bddd does not exist
mdadm -D /dev/md_d12
mdadm: metadata format 00.90 unknown, ignored.
