Twitter Updates for 2008-01-10

  • Trying to figure out why a new Amazon EC2 instance won’t let me set up Software RAID (I’m following the Amazon tutorial!) #
  • why won’t “fdisk /dev/sdb” work on my EC2 instance? It keeps giving me an “Unable to open” error, yet the tutorial tells me to do it! #
  • @humancell you’re right, I don’t. I’m an idiot. šŸ™‚ However, I do have /dev/sda1 and /dev/sda2, and I get the same when I “fdisk /dev/sda” #
  • I wonder if the EC2 small instances don’t support software raid? #
  • I need a Fedora-based AMI that comes with software RAID pre-setup #
  • @humancell, yes – that works. I wonder if I just need to go about it that way, rather than targeting a whole device #
  • @humancell whoa – that’s weird. I could, but now I can’t any more. Now it says it’s unreadable again. #
  • pounding my head on the desk #
  • frak! Amazon small instance servers DO NOT support software RAID. Starting to think that ec2 may not be my best solution – no good backup. #
  • that was about 20 hours down the drain… #
  • My suggestion – get a cheap hosted solution, mount RAID to an S3 virtual drive, and then setup large ami instances on Amazon to be ready #
  • @petdance -> #
