raid-1 and lvm together??
could it be possible during a gui install to use disk druid to lvm my mds since i am doing a raid1 installation...

cappicce?? lvm on raided partitions

hit me back

don't say "urgent" say "thankyou" next time. manners cost nothing.

yes you can put an lvm partition on a software raid block device. this way you can still expend by adding another pair of raid1 disks and extend the single LVM PV across it seamlessly.

thx for the course on manners;) i shall try to remember it ...:(

could you help me to do what you said...seems pretty tough and am no expert ...yet :)

i'll admit i've not done it myself, but it should just be a totally stadnard part of the rhel installation. i have no reason to think it won't let you use md0 as an LVM partition once you create it.

Yeah, you can do it. Did this last night. Very easy.

Vasili 12-02-2006 12:44 PM

hey justin! could you brief me on the procs to do it pls??

JustinHoMi 12-02-2006 02:54 PM

It's very easy. When you are choosing the filesystem for the raid partition you just select LVM as the partition type. Then you click on the LVM button on the main screen to edit the partitions. Let me know if you have any trouble.

hello again
hey that is cool i managed to get it done but is it impossible then to make a mount point on the partition?? ;) :P
