Native Raid Support for RedHat


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.

Rep: Reputation: 30 is a pretty good discussion.

Of course there's always

I set up a file server at home 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.

The package list for FC2 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

Good Luck
