Linux Redhat Advance Server 2.1


Hi all,

I am not Linux Admin and I did install and configured the server before. Basically, the box I configured only had one disk and it's about 40G, no RAID and below is the snapshot of my configuration:

Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda8 1.1G 184M 864M 18% /
/dev/sda1 30M 20M 9.5M 67% /boot
/dev/sda5 3.7G 2.4G 1.2G 65% /home
none 314M 0 314M 0% /dev/shm
/dev/sda9 494M 8.1M 460M 2% /tmp
/dev/sda3 8.6G 2.5G 5.7G 30% /u01
/dev/sda2 16G 13G 2.6G 83% /u02
/dev/sda6 1.7G 1.6G 138M 92% /usr
/dev/sda10 243M 47M 184M 21% /var
[oracle@qhoulinux oracle]$


the reason I open this question b/c in the next two weeks I have to configure another server and it's still on Linux Redhat but it's a little different. This new box will have 2X36G running on RAID 1 for o/s and 3X72G running on RAID 5 for data files (oracle will be on here later).

The question is: take all of the perspective into the consideration.

1. The way to configure this new box will be the same as the first one I did???

2. how am I going to install o/s on RAID 1 and split the RAID for data files only???

Is there any docs available or instructions so I can follow????

thanks all

Well I hope you gonna run it on HW raid and not SW raid.

If you do it in HW raid I guess you have a config program for the raid card so you can assign disks to each raid config.

After that the install in RH will be the same (more or less).

I've never done this with linux just Windoezzzz and I guess linux while manage it the same way.

If you gonna do it with SW raid is just to choose it during install create the raid sets and install the software.

That I've done and you don't have to think more about it after the install.

But I still recommened to use HW raid if you got it.
