I have an already set-up Netra server which I have just put a second disk in.

I have seperate / /usr and /var partions on the first disk.

Does anyone know of any good instructions for migrating to mirrored (Raid 1) partitions?

Hi coutts99,

if you have enough room for backups on your disks you could give theese a try:

http://www.linuxjournal.com/article/5653

the proposal is to backup the original partition
create the RAID devide and then restore from the backup to the RAID.

regards

Here's a useful Tutorial I found on the forums. I started to try and got hung up on a few details I'm a little worried about. If anyone would take a look at the link and maybe respond to my last post I would be grateful. I just don't want to lose all my info. I am going to be trying it on a test box at work using grub so I'll let u know how it goes there but using the silo I'm still a little paranoid.
