I had a RAID 1 setup using by bios. Ubuntu was installed on the RAID array. I now want to move to a software raid using mdadm. I have deactivated the RAID 1 in the bios. I copied the operating system to a separate drive. I now want to create a RAID 5 with 3 disks. 2 of the 3 disks was previously in the fakeraid. Fdisk still shows the fakeraid and has somehow marked the raid as active.
I have two 3TB disks in a Windows 7 Dynamic Disk Mirror array (effectively, software RAID1).
Apart from being tied to the O/S (I can't mount the array in Linux, for example) - is there any difference in performance or reliability of Windows' software RAID offering vs my motherboard's BIOS RAID?
I can't use the motherboard RAID so I'm not asking "Which should I use?", more "What are the up/down-s
I've been facing a very annoying problem these last two days.
I'm trying to install linux on a server.
That server got a RAID Controller: Broadcom BCM5785 [HT1000] SATA
Everything is set perfectly, I successfully created a RAID1 array using the BIOS.
Problem is: any of all linux ditributions I tried are able to see it.
Since I have an hadware controller, it would be stupid to configure Fak
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
Im about to upgrade form CentOS 6.x to v7 this weekend and I've also purchased 6x 3TB drives for this reason. I am going to use software RAID in order to deal with the RAID. I know maybe not the best solution, but for my home NFS server should be good enough.
My question is as I have chosen to disable the "secure boot" from my BIOS will I be able to create the 12TB drive?
Server 2008 x86 SP2
Two 1TB hdd's in WIndows software raid 1.
Sequence of events:The "Primary Plex" HDD dropped out of the raid and caused the server to freeze.
Upon restart, selection of the "Secondary Plex" allowed the server to boot again.
When the "Primary Plex" drive is removed, there is nothing left to instruct the bios where to boot.
