Update suggestion of the OVH Guide for Software RAID

2016-04-07, 11:24 AM

I followed recently your guide to setup a software RAID (http://docs.ovh.ca/en/guides-raid-soft.html) on a dedicated server.

In the part "Creating the partitions" (http://docs.ovh.ca/en/guides-raid-so...the-partitions), the command

parted /dev/sdc mkpart --align="optimal" primary 32,3kB 268GB
was generating the warning "The resulting partition is not properly aligned for best performance" (of course, I changed the start and end values of the partition according to the values indicated by the previous command, in my case : 17.4kB 2000GB).

I got rid of this warning with the following command:

parted /dev/sdc mkpart primary 0% 100%
Could you update your guide accordingly?
