When in YaST/System/Partitioner I try to create RAID for my second HDD which is named "sdb".
My original "sda" hdd is partitioned as follows:
dev/sda, disk type
dev/sda1, linux swap, swap, swap
dev/sda2, linux native, ext3, /
dev/sda3, linux native, ext3, /home
I know Linux has great capabilities over the years of using it but I can't seem to find an exact name or setup for this scenario. I want to do Matrix RAID (that is not the correct general name but it was as close as I got) on two HDD. I want to put the OS in RAID 1 for redundancy and then have another partition or folder as RAID 0 for TV recordings both on two HDD.
I used mdadm to create a RAID device, which apparently is /dev/md0. I need to mount it in order to be able to use it. "Mount" is asking for the filesystem type. I know I need a -t switch, but don't know what to do.
I had a Windows 7 RC/openSUSE 11.1 dual-boot on this computer running on RAID 1.
When I installed Windows 7 final, somehow it screwed up my RAID 1. I fought with it for a while, but decided to wipe the logical drive, and then go into BIOS and disable RAID. I reinstalled Windows 7 on the HDD, but I have no RAID now.
in a nutshell, there's a motherboard with integrated RAID support, and I've been trying to create a RAID 0 with two 500GB disks - did this with the BIOS utility, and it seemed to be successful, but SUSE 11.2 doesn't see it as one 1TB disk, only as two 500GB.
