Description David Lehman 2011-03-10 18:43:09 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #683605 +++

Description of problem:
This config (snippet from my actual kickstart config):
 part raid.0 --ondisk=sda --asprimary --fstype ext4 --size=10000 --grow
 part raid.1 --ondisk=sdb --asprimary --fstype ext4 --size=10000 --grow
 part raid.2 --ondisk=sdc --asprimary --fstype ext4 --size=10000 --grow
 raid /     --level=1 --device=md0 --spares=1  --fstype=ext4 raid.0 raid.1 raid.2

Should result in a two-device mirror + one spare.

Instead, it's a three-device mirror with no spare.

Comment 1 James Laska 2011-03-11 19:43:50 UTC
Hey Dave, is this already fixed in anaconda-15.22-1, or something later?

Comment 2 David Lehman 2011-03-11 20:38:28 UTC
The fix will be in anaconda-15.23-1.

Comment 3 Adam Williamson 2011-03-18 17:11:12 UTC
Discussed at 2011-03-18 blocker review meeting. Accepted as a blocker per criterion "# The installer must be able to create and install to software, hardware or BIOS RAID-0, RAID-1 or RAID-5 partitions for anything except /boot". Fix pending so we're not worried!~
