Single drive to RAID howto
I have a single drive that I've configured exactly the way I want it. Whenever I need to build a new machine, I simply clone the single drive onto another drive. I use DD for the cloning.
Now I need to have some redundancy, so I just built a RAID1 system.
My question is: is there a way to take the info on the single drive, and migrate it over to my RAID1 array?
I thought about just tarring up the root directory (/) on the single drive, and then untarring it on the array, using a live CD. Would this work if I exclude /boot partition, and /etc/fstab and /etc/mtab?
Advice on a better way of doing this would be appreciated.
