Description

This pull request adds the possibility to the partitioner of defining an MD RAID array on top of full disks, not only on top of partitions. https://github.com/yast/yast-storage-ng/pull/726

It would be nice to have a test probing that it actually works. For example, combining a disk and a partition in the same RAID.

Move to new QSF-y PO after I moved to the "tools"-team. I mainly checked the subject line so in individual instances you might not agree to take it over completely into QSF-y. Feel free to reassign to me or someone else in this case. Thanks.

There are multiple limitations to this feature and it's considered unreliable.

We figured out that it's not common to use whole disk as md raid, as well as it's still experimental and works only on 64 bit. So keeping in the backlog to act on in future if anything changes.

#13 Updated by riafarov 9 months ago

  • Status changed from New to Rejected

We have tried to implement it and without bios boot partition on 64bit it's not always working and is still considered as experimental setup. So rejecting is unless business value of this scenario changes.
