Ubuntu: How to access MD RAID via Live CD?


We are currently trying to run access the data on a server running a HP Ml110 G5 SATA raid controller, using the latest Ubuntu Live CD. We need to delete a few files to let the server boot into Windows but are unable to mount the partitions.

We can see the individual disks via the disk management program but can not mount the partitions, does anyone have any suggestions?


For a software raid I'd do the following (but it might work for your controller too?):

Install mdadm (should be on the cd):

sudo apt-get install mdadm
sudo mdadm --assemble --scan

I think this will recognize your raid automatically and it should pop up in nautilus.

Edit: tried it myself on a new system (Ubuntu 11.04 alpha 1 :) and adapted answer
