Hi, I have installed GEOM RAID-1 on three production servers based on Dru's article - with separate / /usr /var /tmp /swap slices. No drama on installation.
You also have to figure out what to do when primary or secondary hard disk fails. According to the examples in the gmirror man pages, it is a case of shutting down-replacing hdd-booting up-and recreate the mirror. Only the procedure is a bit confusing. Any problem with GEOM, send an email to the gmirror mailing list. They (Pawel) is very helpful.
