I am trying to configure a simple home NAS. I installed the TKL fileserver appliance on a system with the following drives:
1 x IDE 30gig (TKL installed)
2 x 500gb SATAII
The SATA drives are connected to a PCI Sata CARD. I have configured the two drives, via the card bios, into a RAID1 setup.
My questions are:
1) Can Linux normally see the hardware RAID1 array? When executing lshw -C disk I see both drives seperatly. Do I have to use software RAID?
2) Has anyone gone through the processes of adding additional drives to the fileserver appliance and documented it? If so can I see the docs?
Any help would be appreciated. I am trying my hardest to learn to use linux for this project. I am still cloudy with mounting drives.
Thanks in advance.
