Howto UNinstall software RAID 1 without loosing data
Hello guys, this one is a bit tricky I hope someone can help, here it goes, I am trying to migrate a server from REDHAT to DEBIAN remotely, I have the procedure to do it and have tested it with success, however the server is running SOFTWARE RAID 1 and I need to uninstall the RAID 1 without loosing any data and be able to restart the server. so what I was planning to do is:
1. change the boot device in grub from /dev/md2 to /dev/hda2 (that is the boot partition)
2. edit /etc/fstab all entries from /dev/md* to /dev/hda*
now the part I have no idea on how to accomplish is:
1- stop the array and prevent it from loading the next boot.
2- remove the Linux Raid autodetect from the partitions without loosing data
Is out there anybody willing to help? please just reply only if you are sure, I can't afford to loose this server, is my first week at work.
Thanks in advance
Server running raidtools-1.00.2-1.2
