yesterday I have decided to try some improvements on the wiki & build hosting server, since I had 1 spare 250GB SATA Disk from the old windows partition I was planning to integrate it with the existing system building a RAID 1. Because I am new to RAID with Linux and PC class systems I have decided to backup the hosted VMs just in case. Sade option, the RAID 1 build just presented be a frustrating "Mirroring failed" message during the build process.
Since I had to rebuild the disk, took the chance to improve performance by splitting file system over different disks to achieve parallel disk I/O.
After some long hours of lost time and frustration is all up and running again.
