RAID 1 test with VMWARE
First , my english is very poor, please forgive me about my wrong words.
Hi, I trying to understand RAID1 funcionality in Linux.
So, I installed SUSE 9.1 Pro in a VMWare 4.5.3 with 3 SCSI harddisks (sda, sdb and sdc).
I created a md0 RAID 1 partition (reiserfs /) using sda1 and sdb1 partition (Linux Raid Partition) and created sd1 (reiserfs /boot) and sd2 (swap) partition two.
LILO is the boot manager.
SUSE works fine with this configuration, VMWare show me the RAID1 works throught "icon led" indicators.
The TEST :
I shutdown SUSE and removed the sda disk from VMWARE. SUSE didnīt boot. The same thing happen when a remove sdb instead sda.
THE HELP :
Someone could help me saying why my SUSE donīt boot without sda or sdb disk ?
