Helllo everyone.

I have Proxmox installed on top of Debian software RAID-10.

Today it froze and I restarted manually, unfortunately it doesn't boot due to mdadm error.

A. It gives following error on boot.


B. cat /proc/mdstat


C. blkid


What I find weird is boot error UUID doesn't match any UUID from blkid.

It's my first encountering this issue. Any help will be appreciated.
There is initramfs, so everything is already there to recover. Scan for raid devices and assemble them, mount and fix it.
