I have a RHEL 6 system which utilises a software mirror for the logical volumes to provide a level of redundancy. Due to the limitations of not being able to software RAID /boot, it is on its own file system on another disk.
As luck would have it the disk with /boot on it was the one that has just decided to die so I am going to have to recreate it on another disk. It's got me wondering if there is a way of providing a level of redundancy for /boot on systems that don't have any other redundancy for that file system (e.g. hardware RAID)?
