    Default wish list for documentation for setting up RAID


    I recently installed suse 10.3 on a server that has two scsi drives set
    up as a RAID1 array for the OS. While checking the system, I noticed
    that the mirrored drives if booted seperately, would only load the
    bootloader on sda and not on sdb. After a lot of searching on the web,
    I finally discovered that when you create a RAID1 array, the MBR only
    gets written to on sda, making sdb a non (easily) bootable device, if
    sda happened to fail. Being a total beginner, I had no idea this would
    occur, and would wish the setup documentation would do a better job of
    reflecting this problem, and it's solution. Other than that it's great,
    I even installed Suse on an old laptop at home (XP won't even run on it
    anymore, but Suse 11.0 runs perfect).

    Correction, make that a Software RAID 1 array.

    In case anyone is interested, here is the solution I found that worked
    for me.
