    I am planning to install a new Debian server. My goal is to have raid1 functioning so that if either disk fail it will still boot.

    Server = Supermicro with fakeraid, so I would like to use Linux software raid.
    There are 2x 250 GB SATA disks.

    I'd like to know more about partitioning and grub. I read articles about this but did not understand it all.

    This is a test server so no harm done in any case.

    Partitions:
    Should I create similar software raid partitions on both disk ? I mean for / and /boot ...

    Grub:
    What about this, If I understand it correctly grub will be installed only on first disk ? If first disk fails it won't boot ?

    Thanks,

    Jysse
