Okay, me and my friend has been scouting the forums for a few hours for topics that might help us setting up RAID 1 within Slackware 10.0 on a IBM eServer xSeries 330 with SCSI disks.
The server is a "pizza" server and has adaptec SCSI and RAID controller installed, but we can't get it to work.
We've partionally followed the "Linux-SOFTWARE-RAID-HOWTO" but without any success. Ended up with a lot of 99's when we tried to boot.
We are totally newbies with RAID in linux, (windows as well :P), but we've learned a lot today when trying to get it working
Anyway, what do we have to do to get it spinning?
We've come so far that we have mirrored the /dev/sda disk, so the /dev/sdb disk is an exact copy of the /dev/sda, we've set up a raidtab file with the settings:
So what have we done wrong? And what do we have do to get the old boot back?
I think we have "hardware" RAID support? So why should we be installing and configuring a software RAID solution?
Thanks for any help, and we hope that the data attached with this post will do, otherwise you have to tell us what to tell you
And we'll try to post the required data asap.
Thanks in advance.
