my first posting here, if not adequate, please re-direct me - thanx
I have tried to set up a RAID like described on the several Webpages,
amongst those (and "man raidctl" - of course !):
The RAID works fine, now I want a "rooted RAID".
So basically I used a second computer to build my kernel with RAID
support, and copied it to the destination engine, after having installed a
minimum set of OpenBSD 3.6 on sd0a. If I boot the kernel, I can see with
dmesg, that it has the RAID support. I then configured my Raid to have
raidctl -A root raid0
so that a root should be recognized. When I reboot my machine, at the boot
prompt I tell:
boot sd0a:/bsd -a
it would boot my sd0a kernel, up to the point where it asks, were to find
root. The options I can see are only floppy, sd0a and sd1a, but no RAID.
The question comes down to:
How can I "tell" him, to use root from my RAID ?
Have I forgotten something ?
