Hi,

as I noticed that I can't access the device, I recreated the raid manually.
  mdadm --create --level=5 -n 3 /dev/md127 /dev/sdb /dev/sdc /dev/sdd

Could this damage the key-slot?
Are the metadata of the RAID relevant to this?
I read that old versions of mdadm created RAIDs with metadata=0.90 and 
the newer versions with metadata=1.20.
