11. Appendix D. - obsolete linuxrc and shutdown scripts

11.1 Obsolete working - linuxrc

This linuxrc file works fine with the shutdown procedure in the next subsection.

 ---------------------- linuxrc --------------------
#!/bin/sh
# ver 1.07 2-12-98
# linuxrc - for raid1 using small dos partition and loadlin
#

# mount the proc file system
/bin/mount /proc

# This may vary for your system.
# Mount the dos partitions, try both
# in case one disk is dead
/bin/mount /dosa
/bin/mount /dosc

# Set a flag in case the raid status file is not found
# then check both drives for the status file
RAIDOWN="raidstat.ro not found"
/bin/echo "Reading md0 shutdown status."
if [ -f /dosa/raidboot/raidstat.ro ]; then
  RAIDOWN=`/bin/cat /dosa/raidboot/raidstat.ro`
  RAIDREF=`/bin/cat /dosc/raidboot/raidgood.ref`
else
  if [ -f /dosc/raidboot/raidstat.ro ]; then
    RAIDOWN=`/bin/cat /dosc/raidboot/raidstat.ro`
    RAIDREF=`/bin/cat /dosc/raidboot/raidgood.ref`
  fi
fi

# Test for a clean shutdown with all disks operational
if [ "${RAIDOWN} != ${RAIDREF}" ]; then
  echo "ERROR ${RAIDOWN}"
#  Use the next 2 lines to BAIL OUT and leave rescue running
   /bin/echo 0x100>/proc/sys/kernel/real-root-dev
   exit                 # leaving the error files in dosa/raidboot,etc...
fi

# The raid array is clean, proceed by removing
# status file and writing a clean superblock
/bin/rm /dosa/raidboot/raidstat.ro
/bin/rm /dosc/raidboot/raidstat.ro
/sbin/mkraid /etc/raid1.conf -f --only-superblock

/bin/umount /dosa
/bin/umount /dosc

# Mount raid array
echo "Mounting md0, root filesystem"
/sbin/mdadd -ar

#  If there are errors - BAIL OUT and leave rescue running
if [ $? -ne 0 ]; then
   echo "RAID device has errors"
#  Use the next 3 lines to BAIL OUT
   /bin/rm /etc/mtab            # remove bad mtab
   /bin/echo 0x100>/proc/sys/kernel/real-root-dev
   exit
fi

# else tell the kernel to switch to /dev/md0 as the /root device
# The 0x900 value the device number calculated by:
#  256*major_device_number + minor_device number
/bin/echo 0x900>/proc/sys/kernel/real-root-dev

# umount /proc to deallocate initrd device ram space
/bin/umount /proc
/bin/echo "/dev/md0 mounted as root"
exit
#------------------ end linuxrc ----------------------

11.2 Obsolete working - shutdown scripts

This shutdown procedure works fine with the preceeding linuxrc

To capture the raid array shutdown status, just before the file systems are dismounted insert:

        RAIDSTATUS=`/bin/cat /proc/mdstat | /usr/bin/grep md0`
After all the file systems are dismounted (the root file system 'will not' dismount) add:
        # root device remains mounted RO
        # mount dos file systems RW
        mount -n -o remount,ro /
        echo "Writing RAID read-only boot FLAG(s)."
        mount -n /dosa
        mount -n /dosc
        # create raid mounted RO flag in duplicate
        # containing the shutdown status of the raid array
        echo ${RAIDSTATUS} > /dosa/raidboot/raidstat.ro
        echo ${RAIDSTATUS} > /dosc/raidboot/raidstat.ro

        umount -n /dosa
        umount -n /dosc

        # Stop all the raid arrays (except root)
        echo "Stopping raid"
        mdstop -a
This will cleanly stop all raid devices except root. Root status is passed to the next boot in raidstat.ro.

The complete shutdown script from my old raid1 Slackware system follows, I have switched raid1 to the new procedure with the /etc/raidboot.conf file.

#! /bin/sh
#
# rc.6          This file is executed by init when it goes into runlevel
#               0 (halt) or runlevel 6 (reboot). It kills all processes,
#               unmounts file systems and then either halts or reboots.
