is it possible to have a raid 1 set-up under freebsd but the drives aren't the same size - in that I mean I have 2x200gb hard drives and 2 160gb hard drives, now I will have a small website on the box and a small ftp, can I have a raid 1 set-up or is it that one set of drives is bigger than the others going to cause issues, I would prefer to use the two 200gb drives as they are sata and would be better for hosting on

You could probably gconcat one 200 and one 160 to give you 2 360GB drives, then gmirror them

gmirror is fantastically simple :)

Took 2 minute to setup a raid 1 mirror for a customer before xmas :)

I don't do it enough to remember the commands you type, but I remember it was only 4 commands and a reboot to get going.

I don't imagine concat (raid 0) being any harder.

yes but you all know what your doing and have been using BSD a lot longer than i have - so things seem rather simple (like me) :p

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

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!
