i want to install adaptec 1200A raid with 2 seagate 40GB IDE drives ad Mirror set. both hard drives have data and formated as NTFS , what are the proper steps in linux for configure mirror set.
in my views.
1-i will have to move all data to and other hdd ?
2-then reconfigure morror from raid card bios software ?
3- in linux i have to mount that mirror hard disk ?
4- and then move all data on mirror hard disk will autometic mirror
on second mirror hdd.
Your step by step looks accurate. But NTFS isn't the best filesystem to use on a linux box. (all though it will work, but NTFS is still labled as experimental...)
If you are storing data and are going to export that data to windows machines I would format the filesystem as a EXT3 or ReiserFS. If you are going to use the data on your Linux box only I still would format the disk as EXT3 or ReiserFS... ;o)
thank you for reply
