It seems after messing with it for a while, that the hardware made doesn't affect things much in terms of partitioning. If you create a new partition in windows at least, unlike the default system partitions, it won't show up doubled in the linux installer. Now, depending on the distribution you use, it seems like need certain packages in order for linux to ...

kworker using 100% IO doesn't mean it's using all my IOs. It means it's waiting on IO. I think the Postgres issue was separate. Never figured that one out, but it hasn't come back. See: http://serverfault.com/questions/659164/kworker-consuming-90-io-and-zero-disk-write/785415#785415

To check Software RAID status, run following command: sudo cat /proc/mdstat It will provide you out with three possible values as follows: root@tmp:~$ cat /proc/mdstat Personalities : [raid1] md1 : active raid1 sdb2[1] 116414912 blocks [2/1] [_U] md0 : active raid1 sda1[0] sdb1[1] 803136 blocks [2/2] [UU] unused devices: <none> ...

Well it's relatively simple, let's say you have 10TB storage if you configured one volume in raid 10 you would have around 5TB left. When you come to install Ubuntu you should see the volume you created with 5TB available to use.

I eventually got my install to work by removing the RAID card from my server. I also changed the boot drive to be a plain SATA drive, I was trying motherboard raid 1 for a redundant boot drive, once that was done the install completed. I was then able to plug the RAID card back in and access the files on the array.

The hard plans you have can not exactly be achieved with btrfs, simply because you can not configure it that way. Btrfs can be told to use a specific raid level but it will decide by itself on which drive it will put the data and where to put the mirrorored data. With an MD array you can do that. First create a striped array with drive A and B and then ...

I realize this is an old post, but I am still installing Ubuntu Server 14.04 and have found this issue as well. As far as I can tell it is from booting with EFI/UEFI media, as Rod Smith has stated. I ran the install using a USB jump drive with the Ubuntu Server 14.04.4 ISO and the intention of installing in BIOS mode. In the BIOS menu I selected to boot ...

So I booted off of a USB iso and double-checked that the RAID array was being detected and could be mounted properly. It was, and I was able to access the file structure. I added the 2nd SDD drive and did the same test again from the Live USB, and could access both the RAID and the SDD. I went ahead and started the install onto the SDD. My RAID array was ...

ahmetertem. I did this yesterday using the package "mdadm": sudo apt-get install mdadm partition your intended drives (I let it default to ext4 for filesystem, and I used the package "gparted" for this, for your reference) carefully note the device names of the drives you want to use (mine happened to be /dev/sda and /dev/sdc) In Terminal: sudo mdadm --...

If you need to mount the drive, Run Sudo fdisk -l Locate the drive and the mount it with Sudo mount /dev/sd## /location to mount FYI replace ## with your corresponding drive. Also make sure you have created the directory where you intend to mount If you are then trying to make the mounted drive network accessible through Ubuntu, use Samba. There is ...

You said it is RAID5 correct, RAID 5 is set up to rebuild itself if a drive fails, you need to look at your Lacie instructions, it should tell you that you replace the bad drive in the RAID set, and then the Lacie will rebuild the data on the drive. RAID 5 is what is called a stripe set, each drive contains data from the other drives that will allow the ...

Instead of messing with the config file, I prevented transmission-daemon from running automatically and opted, instead, to run it on demand. I created a new user called "fetch", with no shell, and made him a member of the plugdev group. Then, from my own shell, I execute... sudo -H -u fetch bash -c "transmission-daemon" The config file is, or course, ...
