I have troubles setting up Software RAID1 On A Running LVM System (Lenny)
because my partitions are not according to the tutorial. My machine has two identical 500GB SATA drives and I configured one of them with the standard partition scheme (guided entire disk with LVM, not the encrypted option). The second one I leaved blank without any partition. Now comes my problem, according to the howto I should have the following partitions:
but I have only:
...there is no extended partition, so when I do the setup with /sda2 instead of /sda5 everything goes well untill I come to the point "pvcreate /dev/md1"
where I get the error that I have to -ff this command. So please can you tell me why my debian installation woun't create the (extended) partition or how to get this done without this.
Thanks in advance!
