@SergeSamusya BTW: When you get your server set back up, make sure the mdadm monitor daemon is running, and run /sbin/mdadm --monitor --test --scan -1 and make sure that test alert gets delivered to you.

comment Recover data from raid 1 when both drives are faulty
@SergeSamusya I suspect they didn't really fail at the same time, you probably just didn't notice when the first one failed... Also, RAID is not a backup. It'll perfectly happily mirror that mistaken rm -Rf to the other disk, instantly.

Oh, also, that appears to be SATA... What does smartctl -d ata -A /dev/sdb say? Same with /dev/sda, I suppose.

And I guess it couldn't find a partition table on /dev/sda? fdisk -l /dev/sda gives blank and/or errors? (Also check dmesg for errors from that). Basically, curious which I/O errors you're getting in dmesg. That'll tell if the next step is finding a way to copy the data off, except for a few bad sectors or if the next step is sending to a data recovery firm.

Ok, there is no /dev/sda at all? Also, I mean, check dmesg in your recovery console, see if it got some errors when you tried that mount which gave 'wrong fs type, ...'.

The one for sda3 as well, please. Need to make sure they both died around the same time...

comment How to reduce temperature on a Dell XPS (L502X)?
If you look at insidemylaptop.com/how-to-disassemble-dell-xps-15-l502x-laptop you can see what's under your palm is the hard drive, at least on the left side. So that's what you need to cool down.

Please post mdadm -E /dev/sda3 and mdadm -E /dev/sdb3. Also, dmesg around the time of that failed mount.

use /tag for tags instead of "tag". Closer to what they look like on the site.

comment Can't access GPIOs when switching to systemd, but why?
I would guess systemd loaded something in the wrong order. A compare of dmesg (e.g., diff or vim -d) from BusyBox/SysV boot vs. systemd boot might give some clues. Not sure if 2.6.39 prefixed all the lines with a since-boot timestamp, but if it did, you'll need to remove (or change to [X] or similar) those before feeding to diff.

comment Breaking a hard-link in-place?
You can escape them with backslashes. So to get ` you put in: `\`` (of course, I double-escaped that to get it to show you what you type).

comment Can't access GPIOs when switching to systemd, but why?
Your script looks fine, and you should have permission to the file (and if you didn't, you should see an error about it when you did the systemctl status). That's why I'm curious if its working from the shell after boot...
