Apologies in advance, as I am complete novice on this topic and not sure how to phrase the question.
I have an HP server with several physical hard drives. When the server is powered on, it goes through a raid controller check that allows the option of setting up logical drives (in various configurations).
My question is, if I configure a logical drive as a raid of a few physical disks, do I have to configure them the same way in the OS? Or is a the server level raid completely seperate from an OS level raid?
I am not sure if I am explaining this very well, so I going to give more detail:
The HP server is blank, so normally I go through the raid controller to setup the logical drives. Once that is done, I set the server for PXE boot which pulls my kickstart file that contains the following lines:
clearpart --all --initlabel
part /boot --fstype ext3 --size=100 --ondisk=cciss/c0d0 --asprimary
part swap --size=1000 --grow --maxsize=2000 --ondisk=cciss/c0d0
part / --fstype ext3 --size=1 --grow --ondisk=cciss/c0d0
part /data1 --fstype ext3 --size=1 --grow --ondisk=cciss/c0d1
My question is should I be setting these up as a raid in the kickstart file -- or, again, is the server's raid different from an OS raid (if so, I am assuming you only use one of the other -- if not, I am guessing that you have to have them match).
