How to restore image to software RAID 1 array?
Posted on 2008-10-06
I have a linux box running Centos 5. The system has 2 HDDs configured as software RAID 1. I imaged one of the drives and want to restore the image, and would like advice as to the best way to go about this?
Would it be best to wipe HDD1, restore the image to HDD0 and allow the system to rebuild HDD1?
Or just restore the image to HDD0 and allow the RAID array to rebuild to HDD1?
Or fail the array, restore to HDD0 and then re-create the array to HDD1?
All your advice and opinions gratefully received!
