Sarge software raid question

Postby banditti » 2005-09-29 06:22

I setup sarge software raid during install. Two drives mirrored, one hot spare. My question is, if one drive fails, will it auto fix itself and boot if necessary or am I going to have to modify grub if a drive drops out?


TIA,

Unless you get grub to install boot sectors on all disks, *and* you get your bios to really boot from the second disk if the first one is dead, it won't work and you'll need to use grub and/or a cd to boot your system.

It should be possible, but I didn't succeed in any case for any of my setups (all running raid1).

Consumer class PC's are not really always ready for booting-while-one-hd-is-dead... A hardware raid card works better for that.
