Default Software RAID1 On A Running System (Ubuntu 10.10)

Hello,

I have two disks sda (contains the system) sdb (nothing), and i want to make a RAID1.
I'd like to know if when i use fdisk on my sdB device, i also have to change the sda2 type into fd Linux raid autodetect?

my disk repartition :

sda1 /
sda2 (extended partition)
sda5 swap

Thanks,

You can use one of these tutorials:

If you have an LVM system: http://www.howtoforge.com/how-to-set...n-ubuntu-10.04

Otherwise: http://www.howtoforge.com/how-to-set...n-ubuntu-10.04

hi, I have 2 disks sda and sdb too, and sda disk does't have /boot partitiion, only /

It is possible to create raid array without creating /boot partition?

Thanks

Yes, but you can't use LVM then.

ok, my current server 10.04 running without LVM. And I can't use second tuturial.

I just created
/dev/md1 for /dev/sda1 (root) and
/dev/md5 for /dev/sda5 (swap)

I update files fstab, mtab... like in tuturial, but when I reboot server, server does't boot up. Line like "/dev/fd0 cannot mount" or some thing appeared.

How can I apply second tutorial for my server? Thanks.
