How To Set Up Software RAID1 On A Running System... (CentOS 5
 
Hi,

I have read the tutorial and before actually doing this, I have a question how to handle the extended parition. My partitioning is as follow:

Code:

  Device Boot      Start        End      Blocks  Id  System
/dev/sda1  *          1          13      104391  83  Linux
/dev/sda2              14      29396  236018947+  83  Linux
/dev/sda3          29397      29657    2096482+  83  Linux
/dev/sda4          29658      30401    5976180    5  Extended
/dev/sda5          29658      30401    5976148+  82  Linux swap / Solaris

I was thinking to copy the partion table and create md for sda1, sda2, sda3, sda5? And leave sda4 Extended as well as on /sdb4?

Thanks!

Can you post your /etc/fstab and the output of
Code:

mount
?

It's working
 
Hi,

In the meantime I managed to get it all working, besides some minor issues. After the migration to RAID1, the rights on the /tmp has changed to 755 which caused some problems. Changing this back to 777 solved those issues.

Here's the output of some of the config files (for those interested):

/etc/fstab:
Code:

/dev/md1                /                      ext3    defaults        1 1
/dev/md2                /tmp                    ext3    defaults        1 2
/dev/md0                /boot                  ext3    defaults        1 2
tmpfs                  /dev/shm                tmpfs  defaults        0 0
devpts                  /dev/pts                devpts  gid=5,mode=620  0 0
sysfs                  /sys                    sysfs  defaults        0 0
proc                    /proc                  proc    defaults        0 0
/dev/md3                swap                    swap    defaults        0 0

mount:
Code:

/dev/md1 on / type ext3 (rw)
proc on /proc type proc (rw)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw)
devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,gid=5,mode=620)
/dev/md2 on /tmp type ext3 (rw)
/dev/md0 on /boot type ext3 (rw)
tmpfs on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw)
none on /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc type binfmt_misc (rw)
sunrpc on /var/lib/nfs/rpc_pipefs type rpc_pipefs (rw)
