Hi, I've just bought 2 x 160GB drives which I want to RAID 1 with vinum. I used /stand/sysinstall to fdisk and disklabel them, mounted them as /temp1 and /temp2 and checked the size of them using 'df' to stick into my vinum.conf file.
I'm a bit confused though; the output of df does not include the 8% or whatever of the slice that is reserved for root by default. Therefore I was wondering if I should turn the reserved space down to 0%, check the space using df, and use that in my vinum.conf. The reasoning is that when I run 'newfs /dev/vinum/sauron1', more drive space will be reserved, so I'll have two lots of reserved space on each drive which seems wrong. Currently df -h output looks like this, which isn't too impressive for 160GB drives: /dev/vinum/sauron1 131G 1.0K 120G 0% /vinum vinum.conf looks like: drive alpha device /dev/ad6s1e drive beta device /dev/ad7s1e volume sauron1 setupstate plex org concat sd length 141537128k drive alpha plex org concat sd length 141537128k drive beta Thanks for any ideas...
