Software RAID 0 configuration in RHEL using LVM2
I have set up RHEL with single hard drive initially.But now i have installed new 5-hard drives of 1TB each.I have set it up as RAID 0 -Hardware RAID.The problem is linux detects and shows all hard drives as independent separate HDDS.
I want to use LVM2 for software RAID 0 to show all hard drive volumes as single hard drives..
could you please help me with this....
Welcome to LQ!
In the past what I have done is created an md raid0 and then used the md device as a pv for the vg where i create lv. If you are not wanting to do that, this article discusses using just LVM to stripe (raid0) an LV across multiple PVs.
How do I create a logical volume using Logical Volume Manager (LVM) post installation?
assuming the 5 1TB drives you added are sd[bcdef]
reading that article, it looks that you would, for example, then perform
You should also be aware of filesystem limitations from RedHat RHEL. I do not think this will be a concern or problem immediately for you (with RHEL4 or RHEL5) since you are only using ~5TB but should be taken into consideration should you decide to add additional capacity and grow the LV and filesystem later on.
Thanks a lot, I will try the steps mentioned and will hope for the best..
