View Full Version : [ubuntu] Question About RAID1 and LVM Setup

September 18th, 2014, 04:58 PM
I recently purchased a shiny new System 76 laptop with two 1 TB SSDs. I wanted to set up the beast using LVM and RAID1. I re-installed the system using the server version of 14.04 so I could have the installer create the raid and lvm. I followed this blog post - http://blog.miketoscano.com/?p=307, and the steps in the installer to create the raid and then the lvm, and then install the OS, and it all seemed to work. I then installed the ubuntu-desktop and then the system76 drivers. It all seems to be working.

However, I cannot find mdadm. It does not appear to be installed. I looked at /etc/fstab and I see

mark@tsunami:~$ cat /etc/fstab
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
# device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
# that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
/dev/mapper/vg1_tsunami-root / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1
/dev/mapper/vg1_tsunami-swap none swap sw 0 0

And the free space shows

mark@tsunami:~$ df -h
df: /run/user/107/gvfs: Permission denied
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/mapper/vg1_tsunami-root 1.8T 120G 1.6T 7% /

none 7.8G 144K 7.8G 1% /run/shm
none 100M 40K 100M 1% /run/user

There is no mdadm.conf.

mark@tsunami:~$ sudo locate mdadm
[sudo] password for mark:

And mdstat does not seem correct from what I have read.

mark@tsunami:~$ cat /proc/mdstat
Personalities :
unused devices: <none>

Am I missing something? Do I really have what I intended to install?
