    Software RAID partioning


    I have 4 SCSI disks and I am using Software RAID.In the kickstart file I partioned the disks as

    For root:

    part raid.<0 to 4> --size=2048 --ondisk=<device name>

    For Swap:

    part raid.< 4to 8> --size=512 --ondisk=<device name>

    And For /var/log:

    part raid.<8 to 12> --size=2048 --ondisk=<device name>


    And created raid level 1 and created filesystem ext3
    using

    raid / --fstype=\"ext3\" --level=1 --device=md9
    raid swap --level=1 --device=md8
    raid /var/log --fstype=\"ext3\" --level=1 --device=md7


    But after partioning when i give fdisk
    I am getting
    / on /dev/sda1, sdb1.....

    /var/log on /dev/sda2,, sdb2.....

    swap on /dev/sda3, sdb3.....


    I need to have swap on /dev/sda2 and /var/log on /dev/sda3

    It will be helpful if somebody can give some ideas.

    Thanks & Regards

    Software RAID partioning

    I got it. Its because of the size ,which I allocated for the /var/log partition. When I gave size smaller than the swap space , /var/log came as the third partition partition.
