Partitioning Mirrored drives Bad?

Hey all,

I read a while back that partitioning a Mirrored drive setup is not good practice and can lead to the RAID array being unstable.

Is this correct?

I am thinking of partitioning my 2x160gig RAID1 setup.



Thanks

you just need to make sure that both disks have identical partitions. A hardware RAID controller does that for you though :)

Thanks Guys,

It is a Hardware Mirror, setup. Both 160 giggers are hooked up to a PromiseTX2000 PCI Raid card.

Thanks again.

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
