RFE: defaulting to RAID 1
Last modified: 2008-03-02 16:39:01 EST
I have a problem with one of the defaults. When you have multiple drives, the
installation process by default sets them all up in a RAID 0 Array. That is
stripping without any redundancy. Therefore if any of the drives fail your
entire dataset is toast. In this day and age of pretty darned cheap drives,
especially where doubling the size of a drive is generally really cheap why
would this be the default.
It is also really hard to switch to raid 1.
How about a system that where the default is either RAID 1, or where a box asks
you which you want for the drives.
Certainly I am very surprised at this and would wonder how many people are find
this out only at the time of a failure.
Other OSs I work with either ask you or default identicalnear identical drives
to RAID 1 or RAID 5.
Seems reasonable enough. Fixed in git.
Fixed in git ?????
The anaconda source is maintained in git -- the fix has been committed and
pushed there and will be available the next time a build is done
