request for pointers to information
When I set up my Ubuntu system, I configured it with a mirrored set of root disks.
Now I'm getting an error from Palimpsest that I have a disk failing and I need to replace it.
I don't know what questions I need to ask to take care of this.
Getting a new drive into the system and physically attached, not a problem. That I can do. It is the raid and lvm and mirroring that I don't really know how to drive.
In a general case, I think I need to add another disk to my system, partition it to match the existing systems, add it as a third mirror for each of the mirrored partitions and lvms, and then remove the failing disk from the system much as I added the replacement disk.
Could anyone post a few pointers to what sort of stuff I need to do?
Tips on better understanding how lvm and raid work under linux would also be appreciated.
The sad thing is I had these skills under Solaris a *long* time ago.
