Test - New Server

From: "andrew cooke" <andrew@...>

Date: Thu, 8 Nov 2007 07:52:29 -0300 (CLST)

I have re-installed SuSE in an attempt to fix
https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=334106 (it didn't help).  So
this post is a test to see whether posting still works.

The install was "interesting" - I don't have any free disks (or
connections on the mobo), so I reduced the RAID arrays by one disk (by
making that disk's partitions "bad" in each array it contributed to) and
then reformatted it, giving me the same data as before (on broken/unsafe
RAID) and an extra disk.  I then copied critical data to that disk (it
fitted!) and then reformatted the remaining three disks (to avoid this
problem in future I made home a separate set of partitions/array from /,
and added an extra / for rolling over installs so that I can copy
configs).  Finally (I thought) I installed on the smaller arrays, copied
the data back from the free disk, and reformatted and added the free disk
back in.  Unfortunately, the final step in adding the free disk to the
last array (/) failed.  So I ended up having to install again (but by then
the data was on home, separate from /).

So the new partition scheme is:
  /dev/md0  raid 1  /boot  100MB  /devsd[a-d]1   98.7MB
  /dev/md1  raid 5  swap     1GB  /devsd[a-d]2      3GB
  /dev/md2  raid 5  /       10GB  /devsd[a-d]5   29.5GB
  /dev/md3  raid 5  /next   10GB  /devsd[a-d]6   29.5GB
  /dev/md4  raid 5  /home   rest  /devsd[a-d]7  817.9GB
with /srv linked to /home/srv (since it tends to be stuff that doesn't
change on re-install) and /next being where the next OS install will go.
