Hello! I have installed Debian Etch with software raid 1. I am using for this two sata drives. Is it possyble to turn this system to non software raid? Doing so I wish to get the first sata drive to use with Debian Etch as non software raid, and to use second sata drive as a backup, and data drive. Any advice will be appreciated!
Hey Paul I would do it this way:1. Place your second harddisk to another bus (or plug it on over an usb-sata adapter) OR Remove in ~ /etc/mdadm the second disk. 2. Restart and boot from a newer kanotix live-cd (maybe others work also). With it, you can easily mount a raid partition. 3. Maybe repartition and format your first drive and copy the new files on it.
4. Write MBR and other things with lilo/grub (this is the tricky part). 5. BootMaybe someone else has a better solution. But that's the way I do such things. "Fixes" are welcome ;)
