RAID 0 Imaging Issues



  • I have 30 HPZ400 machines running Windows 7 Professional SP1 that I would like to image using Fog 0.32 on Ubuntu 10.04.

    I’ve built a custom kernel 2.6.35.3 to add RAID0 support by following the directions in the wiki: [url]http://www.fogproject.org/wiki/index.php?title=Building_a_Custom_Kernel[/url]

    I can boot the machine and register it, but I cannot get any machine to upload it’s image to the Fog Server. The image is configured as ‘Single Partition (NTFS Only Resizable)’ Does using RAID 0 with this setting cause the issue? When attempting to send the image, I receive the following text:
    Preparing backup location…Done
    Clearing mounted devices…NTFS signature is missing.
    Failed to mount ‘/dev/sdb1’: Invalid argument
    The device ‘/dev/sdb1’ doesn’t seem to have a valid NTFS.
    Maybe the wrong device is used? Or the whole disk instead of a
    partition (e.g. /dev/sda, not /dev/sda)? or the other way around?

    Is it possible to use RAID0 and NTFS Resizable? Imaging the whole disk would be a 10 hour process and not the best solution. Is there an additional setting I can change in the host’s management interface? Something like ‘Host Kernel Arguments’ or ‘Host Primary Disk’

    Thoughts?
