Purchased a dedicated Hetzner server with 2x small SSDs and 2x large HDDs paired with hardware RAID. Running
installimage from Rescue OS shows this as config:
# Adaptec RAID (LD 0): no name DRIVE1 /dev/sda # Adaptec RAID (LD 1): no name DRIVE2 /dev/sdb ...
Lower down, it shows,
## your system has the following devices: # # Disk /dev/sda: 749 GB (=> 697 GiB). # Disk /dev/sdb: 119 GB (=> 111 GiB).
SWRAID 0. How do I tell the script to mount the SSD pair as the primary drive for installing the OS?
My first attempt was to swap the DRIVEx statements around, which resulted in this on Debian:
root@Debian-90-stretch-64-minimal / # lsblk NAME MAJ:MIN RM SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT sda 8:0 1 698G 0 disk |-sda1 8:1 1 12G 0 part | `-md0 9:0 0 12G 0 raid1 [SWAP] |-sda2 8:2 1 512M 0 part | `-md1 9:1 0 511.4M 0 raid1 /boot `-sda3 8:3 1 99.1G 0 part `-md2 9:2 0 99G 0 raid1 / sdb 8:16 1 111.6G 0 disk |-sdb1 8:17 1 12G 0 part |-sdb2 8:18 1 512M 0 part `-sdb3 8:19 1 99.1G 0 part
As you can see the SSDs are a on
sdb and the larger 698GB HDDs are on
sda, but sda is not fully partitioned. It feels like potentially the drives are incorrectly paired.
