Re: Debian + LVM + RAID1
I looked quickly on google and so far articles I see refer to
installing grub onto the 2nd HD using the grub command. I will go
back and look at the howto you posted and see if they say anything
different. I am NOT the raid/grub master and sure not the final word
on the subject.
From http://dev.jerryweb.org/raid/ :
You may now continue by first installing GRUB on the boot sector and
proceed with the complete installation of Debian which will be written
symmetrically on the two disks in RAID.
Enjoy Debian with the RAID set up for both boot and data such that
even if one disk crashes you will be able to restore your
configuration (do not forget to give to your new disk partitions
identical to the old disk and to copy GRUB to the boot partition if
This seems to be saying install GRUB onto the MBR of a disk (md devices
don't have an MBR) and note that part where it says to copy GRUB to the
boot partition. I don't know exactly what he meant by that since the
only way I know to copy GRUB is to run the grub command and install it
onto a MBR. By definition, a raid1 that is restored will copy all it's
data to the replaced HD, leaving no reason to "copy GRUB to the boot
partition" unless he is meaning the grub command.
If anybody knows different, please educate me.
