SDB:Migration to Linux Software RAID

Şuraya atla: kullan, ara

Version: 9.1


You have an IDE RAID controller under which the BIOS and a driver manage the hard disks (Promise TX controller, Highpoint RocketRaid controller, etc.). During the installation of SUSE LINUX 9.1, a message warns you that writing to these hard disks can result in a loss of data, as the Linux kernel 2.6 no longer supports these controllers.

Now you would like to know the alternatives.


As the Linux kernel 2.6.x no longer supports this kind of RAID controllers, you should migrate to a Linux software RAID. To do this, disable the RAID function in the BIOS of your controller in order to use the hard disks as normal IDE hard disks. Subsequently, you can create a Linux software RAID on these hard disks during the installation. Information on the procedure is presented in the Administration Guide from page 35.
