How to configure multiple hard drives
« on: April 06, 2012, 05:14:36 am »
I have a 250GB, and 3x2TB hard dives. I had running LMCE10.04 in Virtualbox but I never was able make use of those TB drives because I couldn't get past VB to recognize these drives. I have some down time this weekend and wondering how to go about it to make it work. I think I will start with a fresh install.
What I would like is to use 250GB drive to load Ubuntu 10.04 and run Virtualbox and load Kubuntu/LMCE10.04 as a VM. TB drives to house all media files. Do I set up disks (raid-0) in Ubuntu or set up raid-0 in LMCE running in VB? What are the steps that I should follow? or would you configure these drives in an another manner?
Thanks in advance.

You can also use 11.10 or 12.04b. Install the server version including kvm. After installation add virt-manager to be able to handle vm's, you can install lmce as a virtual machine on an image, disk etc. with virtmanager you can also add images as hdd or whole hd's to the system (after format ofcourse)

Thanks for the advice. Perhaps, what I was doing wrong was trying to do all this with desktop version of Ubuntu? I didn't like too much of 11.10 so I will try with 12.04b server that I haven't tried yet.

Make sure you do a bit of reading on bridges and stuff, to make sure u can generate the right network enviroment. I myself are running openvswitch but at the moment not to happy about its as a reboot kills the bridges and you'll have to reconfigure. Bridge-utils is the safe bet for now
