It would seem to be fairly common situtaion. install RHEL 6.3 on a server that has 2 identical drives in a RAID1 mirror.
just can't seem to find any examples, howtos or directions anywhere...
i do see that the LVM has support for RAID1 vs Mirror...
this morning I tried to use the custom partition program in the Graphical installer to create a /boot and a / partition both as ext4 formatted MD devices.
/dev/sda1 200M software raid partition
/dev/sdb1 200M software raid partition
/dev/sda2 405000M software raid partition
/dev/sdb2 405000M software raid partition
MD0 /boot 200M /dev/sda1 /dev/sda2 EXT4
MD1 / 405000M /dev/sda2 /dev/sda2 EXT4
when I selected Next to continue the install
I got the error message /boot/efi not configured.
so i shrunk the / partition and addeda 200M MD1 as /boot/efi and MD2 as the new slightly smaller / partition
still got the same message.
