RAID support

Reported by: gerard Owned by: kris
Priority: minor Milestone: 8.0

Keywords: raid, installer, installation Cc:


The 1.3 Installer had support for RAID. This has been taken out of 1.4

Can this again be implemented into v1.5?

  • Milestone changed from 1.5 to 2.0

The RAID stuff will probably be re-added in PC-BSD 2.0, when we switch over to FBSD 7. I will be working more on the installer at that point.

  • Status changed from new to assigned

So far we have added ZFS, and new file-system selection options and other install methods, but software RAID will still need to be done at some point. I'll see about writing this into 7.1 if we can.

Gmirror RAID was added back in with 8.0, along with a few other features, such as ZFS, etc. We may add more advanced RAID stuff in the future, but for now we should have the same features we did previously.

I just tested mirroring with PC-BSD 8.0 installer, and I just didn't get it. What does it do? How does it work?

PS. As GEOM is really flexible in the means of being able to use disks, slices or partitions for RAID, I think PC-BSD installer should allow all these possibilities.
