CentOS 7 Install On One RAID 1

Hi, folks,

I’m building a new box, and I want three partitions – /boot, /, and swap, on *one* RAID 1, not three separate partitions. Other than
mdadm…, *is* there any way in the graphical installer to do this? All I see is a way to make three separate partitions.

Pointers to links happily accepted.

mark, back to googling

  • the first sentence is in conflict with the last one (“I want three partitions” vs. “not three separate partitions”)

    A hardware RAID will provide one device that can be partitioned or use LVM on one MD RAID (software version).

  • I don’t know the answer to that question, but what I can tell you is that I handle software RAID setup in kickstart, creating the partitions manually, so that I can replace drives using a shell script. Making the partitions predictable means there’s less of a chance that I’ll make errors during drive replacement, and that I can pass that duty on to less experienced co-workers without worrying about it.
