Hi guys. Looking for some pointers here.
Trying to create a RAID10 file server, auxiliary storage really.
This is probably just a really stupid problem on my end, but can't figure it out for the life of me. Seams like basic RAID management really.
4 disks. All identically partitioned.
100 MB /boot, RAID1 with 2 spares (I hear you can't use RAID10 for /boot)
2 GB swap on each disk (not mirrored)
remainder of disk is /, RAID10
Everything installed fine.
So I remove a disk just to see what happens. Just testing everything really.
And the system can't boot. MDADM says it doesn't have enough drives to start the array. Well, obviously, I failed one on purpose. Shouldn't the system boot anyway? Isn't that the point of having a RAID, in case a drive fails?
