Subject [jira] Commented: (INFRA-604) Find out how to mirror/stripe drives in Xserves
Date Fri, 18 Nov 2005 06:29:41 GMT

Sander Temme commented on INFRA-604:

Full blow-by-blow for Sander Striker's benefit when he gets to do the other one: 

The SF system came with all four of its drive bays filled, two with 60Gb drives and two with
180Gb. Since the 60Gb mirror already had the OS installed, I had to go through the initial
boot and setup before I could change the Startup Disk to the CD. I had to boot from CD to
re-create the mirror with auto-rebuild set. 

You can run Disk Utility from the installer after booting from CD (Utilities menu). To create
a RAID, select one of the disks and click the RAID tab (yes this is bogus UI). Select striped
or mirrored, and drag constituent disks from the left pane to the array list. Click 'create'.
Whatever was on those disks is now gone. 

I made a 60Gb mirror for the OS (named MirrorBoot), and a 2x180Gb stripe for spool (x1, in
good ASF tradition).
