I don't think I crated a Raid1 array


Hi,

During my Fedora 5 installation adventures I figured out how to do custom partitioning. I have 2 120G disk which I wanted to be a RAID1. I partitioned them as RAID but when I did the LVM part I combined the two RAID partition into one LVM volume.

Is this wrong? If so, what the simplest way of fixing this? Then, how can I confirm that it's actually a RAID1?

No that is how Fedora Core 5 does things. I got the same exact thing when doing a raid1 setup on my server at home.

Hi jstephens84,

So, am I SOL as far as getting a RAID? What did you do?

By the way "Trapped Wind" sounds like a MS product.

You should be fine. LVM is just a way they organize their volumes. LVM stands for Logical volume Managment. Can you boot your machine. What if any errors are you getting?

Everything is working fine as far as I can tell. I'm booting to SCSI disks using a promise (Ultra 133 TX2) card with the 2 RAID disks. When I copy to and from '/home' both HDD LEDS go on and flash exactly the same.

I'm assuming that the card BIOS is doing all the morroring work, I just don't know how to comfirm that it's actually running as a RAID1. I'm still feeling my way around Fedora, if there were error logs, where would I find them?

If both drives are flashing at the same time then that means there is a good chance it is working. The only other way I would know to test it out would be to unplug one of the hard drives and see if linux still fires off. I don't know of the repercutions of doing this so YOu may have potential data loss. I would backup all important data first.
