Hi, before I do the unthinkable and use Linux for a server , I ask for your help. I have a set of 4 IDE drives . I need to build a file server that'll run samba/nfs
I've done this. Works very well.
I want to use all 4 drives as a raid 5 array and use the combined space for storage. is there a way to do it with FreeBSD ? I looked at ccd and vinum but as far as my understanding goes , I cant use it during setup but rather build the system first and than use ccd/vinum on all BUT the system disk . am I wrong ?
is there a solution out there ?
You can use all four drives in your Vinum array. There used to be a restriction that the root partition could not be part of the Vinum array, but that's no longer the case, see the Vinum section of the handbook: http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/vinum-vinum.html And specifically this: http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/vinum-root.html
