Re: Single HDD (installed on) -> Dual HDD RAID 1 migration
For general info:
An alternative rather than having 3 arrays, one could have one array and use LVM to subdivide it into 3 or more partitions. LVM is a lot more flexible. I am not sure what the relative performance is.
I have my OS on the RAID because I dont want any loss of service if I lose a disk. I havent found any problems with this myself.
Strictly speaking, swap doesnt have to be on a raid. Normally swap isnt used anyhow so losing it probably wont stop your system working unless it is using swap space when swap is lost. I am not sure how the OS would deal with that scenario.
