We are contemplating to start using RHEL v4 in our enterprise.
Most of our servers have a hardware RAID.
The server we are using for a RHEL 4 trial install has 4x36GB SCSI drives configured using RAID 5.
Of course, we also want to use LVM.
Can someone please suggest what would be the best “layout”/”recipe” considering the configuration I described?
Using “automatically” partitioning during install RHEL suggests:
/boot and swap outside LVM and the rest of space in LVM mounted under / file system.
Is this sufficient layout for maximum flexibility? Should I create other logical volumes and file systems?
Any tips are appreciated
