    18 == Setting up a Mirror RAID (RAID 1) ==
    19 Per recommendations from our friends at !MonkeyBrains, we'll set up a software
    20 RAID 1 and monitor it with mdadm.  The plan is to sync up RAID health with
    21 SNMP monitoring.
    22 
    23 This is a very good tutorial on
    24 [http://ubuntuadministrator.com/?p=3 setting up a software RAID 1] please follow
    25 it for the step by step RAID install.
    26 
    27 The idea is to create 3 partitions:
    28         * / (root) where all the OS etc files go
    29         * /FILES where all the documents go
    30         * Swap The necessary swap partition
    31        
    32 On a 500 GB drive I propose doing this :
    33         * /FILES = 430 GB
    34         * Swap = 4 GB (swap is conventionally 2X RAM, a swap this size may not
    35         be necessary with 2 GB of RAM and for use as a file server
    36         * / = <leftover space>
    37 
    38 In order to create the software RAID, you first create regular primary
    39 partitions on the first disk (SDA) as in the following:
    40 
    41 {{{
    42 select: Partition Disk Manually
    43 select: Device SDA1
    44 Create new empty partition table on this device: yes
    45 Select Free Space (pri/log): <per size of the disk>
    46 select: Create new primary partition
    47 Mount point: /
    48 Bootable Flag: on
    49 Use as: Select Physical Volume For RAID
    50 select: Done Setting up partition
    51 }}}
    52 
    53 And then you create an MD device from each partition. 
    54 
    55 Again, see the [http://ubuntuadministrator.com/?p=3ubuntu RAID tutorial]
    56 as it explains exactly how to do this step by step. 
     3== Installation of Ubuntu 8.04 LTS ==

     5Create CDROM and boot off USB-CDROM.

     7== Partitioning ==
     8We feel that 20GB and 4GB of swap is more than sufficient, leaving ample room for client files. 
     9
     10 * / 20GB Primary Ext3 Bootable = Yes (leave all other defaults)
     11 * swap 4GB swap
     12 * /FILES/ Primary Ext3 Bootable = No (leave all other defaults)

     170== Setting up a Software RAID 1 - (DEPRECATED) ==
     171We are using the hardware raid cards now, so this is deprecated. 
     172
     173Per recommendations from our friends at !MonkeyBrains, we'll set up a software
     174RAID 1 and monitor it with mdadm.  The plan is to sync up RAID health with
     175SNMP monitoring.
