RE: [linux-lvm] Setup for RAID1 with LVM



Hi,
To do that:
- create a md0 RAID1 device with your 2 disks (mirror, no use of LVM)
  - set the parttion ID to RAID autodetect (0xfd)
  - edit /etc/raidtab (see RAID Howto)
  - mkraid /dev/md0
- install LVM utilities (0.9.1beta3)
- pvcreate /dev/md0
- vgcreate -n BGNAME /dev/md0
- lvcreate <some logical volume>
