I am trying to set up 2 x 1TB hard drives in [mirrored] RAID1 on FC10, I have the live CD and use the GUI isntall.
I can create the 8 partitions of software RAID type under sd0 and then clone them over to sd1 they are as follows:
/ = 5gb
swap = 2048mb
/var/mysql = 50gb
/var/vmail = 500gb
/var = 10gb
/tmp = 1gb
/usr = 10gb
/home = 10gb
I then set-up raid devices for these using sd0a sd1a ...etc to create the mirroed partitions. It moans about initializing swap however. So I try creting 7 raid partitions and leaving swap on sd0, same, i leave swap on sd1, same, i create 1 swap on each HDD, same, I create a RAID0 on both swaps, same.
What ever I do, it complains about the swaps when I press the next button. I can create them find in whatever config I do in the partition layout menu, but when I press nex,t it asks do I want to write changes to disk, I do, then it gives me the error.
Can anyone one please assist me with setting up swaps when I want a mirrored partition.
I have no hardware RAID, just 2 SATA hard drives plugged into the motherboard, where if 1 hard drive fails, the server carry on, until I shut down, replace, start up and rebuild the array.
