Ubuntu 10 and DMRAID

Installed my new Ubuntu 10 server today and spent 4 hours on trying to get the DMRAID working right.

Intel server board supports simulated RAID which is configured using DMRAID. I created a RAID1 using 2x SATA disks in the RAID controller.

Online guides work fine, but they forget to mention 1 very important thing.


After doing the partitioning, restart.

After formating, restart.

Then use the standard setup that should detect the disk is formatted and leave them alone.

Hope this helps someone.
