I'm using the RAID 1+0 structure as described in this post: http://serverfault.com/questions/166300/raid-10-vs-raid-01
I'm at the installation screen for Ubuntu Server. Both of my raid stripes are setup. The screen I'm looking at now allows me to create partitions and stuff and I'm not sure how to setup the drive mirroring. Can anyone help guide me in the right direction?
All of my hardware specs are in the other thread.
I've followed the guide here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/SoftwareRAID
Though I'm not sure if I should be - it still fails to create the MD.
The configuration I have now where it won't let me create the mirrored RAID (assuming I'm doing it correctly)....
Serial ATA RAID isw_bcjjcifhdi_primary (stripe) - 1.0 TB Linux de #1 primary 988.0 GB B #5 logical 12.2 GB Serial ATA RAID isw_dbgajfddgf_secondary (stripe) - 1.0 TB Linux #1 primary 988.0 GB B f ext4 / #5 logical 12.2 GB F swap swap
the problem was that I didn't select RAID10 from the beginning. I tried to setup dual stripes first.... oops!
When I go into format the partitions it won't create an Ext4 file system on the RAID.... it fails. Any ideas on why?
