another install for OMV (only 4 disk and raid10)

  • what i did


    - download the iso and extract it
    - go into the file install/preseed.cfg
    - to the section "### Partitioning" comment all lines and save
    - burn the new iso with this command line from debian's wiki


    # genisoimage -o test.iso -r -J -no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 \-boot-info-table -b isolinux/isolinux.bin -c isolinux/boot.cat ./cd


    - with a live cd i create a GPT for each disk
    - boot on the cd and to partitionning do what you want
    - in my case i create


    sda1

    sda2

    sda3

    sda4

    1MB boot-bios

    2GB swap

    1GB raid10

    max raid10


    - do the same thing for sdb, sdc and sdd
    - i choose to install OMV (file system /) on /dev/md126 (sd[abcd]3) with ext4
    - finish the install


    on the web-gui prepare the /dev/md127 (sd[abcd]4) as you want (eg one partition ext4 for data)


    so, i have one install without usb key
    what do you think ? and how can i do better ? (learn preseed, partman, debootstrap, ...)
    you might also copy grub on another disk (to change boot order if one disk crash)


    thanks to write this post in a good english if you want ... sorry !
