DMRAID DOS format handler?
|[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]|
What is the DMRAID DOS format handler used for? When I have an NTFS partition on a raid set, I get an additional level of nesting displayed in device-mapper. The NTFS partition shows up as a linear raid level above my other raid level (mirror or stripe). This seemed strange to me, so I experimented with removing the DOS format handler from DMRAID. When I did this, I was no longer able to see the NTFS partition sitting on top of my mirror. Note: I setup the NTFS partition using Windows and the Intel Matrix Storage Manager. I was then able to make an ext3 file system on the mirror and write data to it, in Linux. I can now move the drive set back and forth with the Windows system and see the NTFS and data on Windows and the ext3 and different data in Linux. How can both file systems exist on the raid set? Any info helping me to understand what is going on would be great!
