How to make RAID0 turnkey file server?


I1m new turnkey user. I try more than 2 days make a RAID1 (mirror) but I can't. Anyone can help me what wrong?

1. I have 2 disk, sam type and size

2. Go web admin, Hardware, Partition on Local Disks

3. Select disks on by one and set type Linux RAID

And now? When I go to logical volume manager I can split disks but can't make a RAID ...

Anyone has step by step documentum?

I personally have no idea.

And the devs have previously said that RAID is not currently officially supported. That doesn't mean you can't do it, just that they haven't tried it and so can't give any support for it.

You never know your luck maybe someone who does have experience will be along and be able to head you in the right direction.

In the meantime you could try browsing the Ubuntu documentation and/or forums to see if you can find any info/tutorials/etc to help you out. (TKL v11.x is heavily based on Ubuntu 10.04/Lucid server.)

Good luck and please post back with your experiences (even if you can't get it working, at least that may be a starting point for someone else who wishes to work on it or someone may be able to help with a roadblock).

I've got it :)

1. Shell in a box https://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:12320

2. apt-get install mdadm

3. mdadm --create --verbose /dev/md0 --level=1 --raid-devices=2 /dev/sdb1 /dev/sdc1

4. Hardware - Logical Volume Management u can use md0 :)
