Description Michael Fulbright 2000-04-03 18:06:14 EDT
Go into disk druid with 5 empty SCSI drives.

Create a 31 meg RAID partition on each drive - you will now have
sda1, sdb1, sdc1, sdd1, sde1

Make a RAID filesystem using disk druid using these 5 partitions as a
RAID-1 /boot.

Create another partition of any type, now the 5 RAID partitions will be
forced onto the first 2 drives because of the /boot constraint of being
on the first two drives. Did not impose this until another partition

Workaround: Create RAID partitions with fdisk before entering the disk
druid screen.

This issue has been forwarded to a developer for further action.
Comment 2 Michael Fulbright 2000-06-12 14:43:16 EDT
Should be fixed in latest internal release - please verify.
Comment 3 Brock Organ 2000-06-20 18:13:46 EDT
disk druid now prevents using more partitions from more than 2 drives... this
will show up in the next release ...
