Default Question: Configure Software RAID 1 on Debian Lenny

Hello everybody,

I recently installed Software RAID on a test server in a virtual machine, according to this Tutorial:

http://www.howtoforge.org/software-r...debian-etch-p2

I was wondering if there's a more easy way to install grub.

instead of opening the grub-shell and entering four commands, a second solution was offered on an other Bulletin Board.

Simply enter grub-install /dev/sda, respectively /dev/sdb

Will this cause the same or am I going to "loose" the RAID.

I also tried to do this:

sfdisk -R /dev/sdb

which returns a "device busy" error. is sfdisk -d /dev/sda | sfdisk /dev/sdb equal to sfdisk -R /dev/sdb.

I would like to use Software RAID 1 in a productive environment, so I want to solve all questions first.

Bye there,

Zero

This should work as well.

Please use
Code:
sfdisk -d /dev/sda | sfdisk /dev/sdb
instead.
