Using Software RAID on another machines
I've ordered 3 hard drives to create a software RAID-Z array on my Arch Linux machine that are going to arrive in a few days. I'm planning to place these hard drives inside an enclosure that can be connected to my computer using eSata or USB ports.
I have done my research on how to create a RAID Z pool on Arch Linux, however, the following scenario is not clear to me. Let's say I create my RAID array using my Arch Linux machine and back up my movies and pictures into the RAID server. After a while I decide to change my OS to Ubuntu, Mac or maybe even windows. I was wondering if my RAID is still going to be there and functioning well? What about connecting the enclosure to my DD-WRT powered router using USB and serving them over the network?
I have the following version of DD-WRT installed on my Asus WL-500G Premium V2:
Firmware: DD-WRT v24-sp1 (07/27/08) mini.
Thanks in advanced.
