Bug Description

To quote:

# AUTOCHECK:
# should mdadm run periodic redundancy checks over your arrays? See
# /etc/cron.d/mdadm.
AUTOCHECK=true

# AUTOSCAN:
# should mdadm check once a day for degraded arrays? See
# /etc/cron.daily/mdadm.
AUTOSCAN=true

Neither /etc/cron.d/mdadm nor /etc/cron.daily/mdadm exist (having been converted to systemd timers at some point, I believe).

I've fixed the reference to /etc/cron.daily/mdadm in 4.1-11ubuntu1 because it is already honored by mdmonitor-oneshot.service , but AUTOCHECK should be honored by the other servicing replacing the cron job. This will be a follow-up change for LP: #1815201.

Changed in mdadm (Ubuntu):
status: New → Confirmed
importance: Undecided → Low
