Re: Help with ES v3 Raid1 (Mirror)



Hi Marc.

I think you forgot somethings.
After you fdisk a disk, you must restart the system so the new changes
have efect.
So I suggest you follow this steps:

1) fdisk sdb setting fd to the partition, as you did;
2) restart the system;
3) execute sfdisk -d /dev/sdb | sfdisk /dev/sdc (copy partition
structure from sdb to sdc);
4) restart again;
5) run the command to make the raid devices (mdadm ...), as you did;
6) mkfs.ext3 /dev/md0
7) e2fsck -f /dev/md0
8) add lin in fstab.

Ready.
