I'm trying to set up a mirrored (RAID 1) "file cabinet" consisting of the remainder of sda, after "/" and swap have been set up and Ubuntu installed, plus the equal amount of Gb space on sdb, amounting to a RAID 1 on sda3 and sdb1.
In my opinion, mirroring is neither necessary nor desired for the rest of Linux, since anything that corrupts my root/boot sector on the one HDD would just be duplicated on the other HDD; all I need, and want, is a RAID 1 "file cabinet" set up AFTER the installation of Ubuntu 14.04.
I don't figure that there are many folk who have tried this, but I would be happily surprised if everyone has done it!
What I would like to know is the step by step syntax, in mdadm, for how to do this (I have already downloaded/installed mdadm), in language that you'd use to explain this - or anything else - to a noob, please!
Thanks! Pathfinder : -) Tag-1: groundbreaking Tag-2: outsidethebox Tag-3: notforpissants Tag-4: edgecity
