Native Raid Support for RedHat


Hello,

I am trying to install RedHat on a server and I want Raid support. Does Red Hat 8 or 9 support raid. I think it is Raid 10 we are trying to suport. 4 drives and one extra drive as a backup.

Thanks for the help.

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...217#post622217 is a pretty good discussion.

Of course there's always http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/Software-RAID-HOWTO.html

I set up a file server at home http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=181937 using FC1 and mdadm with software raid5. The more disks that you use the less space is lost to parity. It sure beats mirrored arrays. Also in windows help you can read all about its support for raid5, but eventually you note that it's only available on those server versions that co$$$t $$$o much.

http://www.linuxdevcenter.com/pub/a/...2/05/RAID.html

The package list for FC2 http://fedora.redhat.com/projects/package-list/ shows mdadm 1.5.0, I looked at an update repository for RH9 and it only had 1.0.something. You can find rpms here http://www.cse.unsw.edu.au/~neilb/source/mdadm/RPM/

Good Luck
