I have setup Raid 1 & Raid 10 in Virtual Box for learning purpose.
The following Partitions for 4 Hard Drives:
I make a 100mb partition (/boot) on four drives and make that a raid 1 partition.
Then with the remaining space on each drive, I've setup software raid 10 and configure it to LVM. In the LVM I setup a 4gb swap partition and 20GB for root partition (/) as ext4.
It appear to be working when I have installed CentOS 6.2 64Bit. Then I decided to remove second HD (Disk2.vdi) to see what happen and restart the virtual machine then I get an error:
Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!
This is where I get stuck. I was expecting OS to load up fine and let me know one disk has failed, but it didn't. What's wrong?
Edit: I dug further to see what went wrong, here's the screenshot:
Is this normal when a disk fails? Or did I not setup the partitions/raid correctly?
