Anaconda refuses to create a degenerate RAID-1
Last modified: 2012-05-29 06:56:49 EDT
Description of problem:
Anaconda insists a RAID device has to have more than one member. This makes it impossible to create a single-member RAID-1 (effectively a single partition with a RAID superblock) with the intent of adding a second device later.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 17 release media (version unknown).
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to install Fedora 17 on a system with only one drive, but create the filesystems as RAID-1, sans LVM.
2. Watch Anaconda try to tell you a RAID device must have two members, and therefore refuse.
That is intentional behaviour. We do not support installing to degraded RAID.
