Description Jiri Jaburek 2014-08-12 14:42:34 UTC
Created attachment 926082 [details] screenshot of anaconda GUI installer showing no RAID options Description of problem: The GUI installer doesn't seem to support non-btrfs software raid, the initial "partitioning scheme" selection doesn't include it and it's not available in any mountpoint options after mountpoint creation, see the attached image. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): (the version used for the official RHEL-7.0 DVD) Actual results: no softward raid configuration possible using the GUI installer Expected results: being able to configure software raid (mdadm) over any block devices (entire disks, standard partitions, LVM LVs, existing software raids) Additional info: Software raid works just fine using a custom kickstart, it's just the GUI installer, which lacks the capability. My use case was to create two degraded raids (v0.90 metadata for /boot, v1.2 metadata for /) on a single drive, adding a second drive later.

Created attachment 926084 [details] screenshot of anaconda GUI installer showing RAID options We already do? Did you choose more than one disk to install to?

No, as I said: (In reply to Jiri Jaburek from comment #0) > My use case was to create two > degraded raids (v0.90 metadata for /boot, v1.2 metadata for /) on a single > drive, adding a second drive later. If the installer doesn't support this, please append "for degraded RAIDs" to the bug summary. Thanks, Jiri

Anaconda does not support degraded RAID.
