No option for redundant biosboot partition
Last modified: 2016-07-19 14:04:31 EDT
I'm trying to install Fedora server with BTRFS RAID 10 on 4 disks. The installer doesn't create a biosboot partition on all devices. Creating a biosboot partion on all devices would be expected behavior for a redundant setup. Instead only sda gets a biosboot partition.
I tried manually configuring a biosboot partition on all four disk drives, this doesn't work.
I see two problems with the biosboot partition in anaconda:
1 When you select all 4 drives as install destination it only gets installed on one drive.
2 It is possible to manually create a biosboot partion on all 4 drives. However the installer always only shows 1 bios partition. The partition summary displays all the biosboot partitions you have manually created.
Fedora 22 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-07-19. Fedora 22 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
