Repartition of configured RAID Tags: NAS / RAID File System Last response: March 23, 2010 10:09 PM in Linux/Free BSD Share gautam_khetan March 3, 2010 2:25:01 PM Hello, I have configured software RAID5 using 5 disk with ext3 file system, and now can i partition configured RAID with different file system. Any information would be of great help. Thanks in advance. More about : repartition configured raid chip monkey March 5, 2010 11:41:27 AM you can. The array will appear assigned to a device just like a single disk. If you have it mounted (df will tell you what's mounted) it will probably look like /dev/mdX that's the device you want to pass on to mkfs (don't forget to umount first). The rest depends pretty much on what file system you want to give it (and possibly what distro you are using - they have sometimes tools for that to make it more 'userfriendly'). meho March 23, 2010 10:09:47 PM hmm....linux uses /dev/md[0-9] for raid? isnt md memory disk, at least it is on BSD...
