What's the ideal configuration for a system that WILL use Greyhole mirroring?
For those with the desire to mirror with greyhole, you "should" have 3 minimum partition mounts as follows ...
- /var/hda/files (with Greyhole ON, this is known as the LZ -- landing zone -- and this partition doubles as storage for shares that you choose NOT to enable with Greyhole)
With Greyhole ON, these 2 drive## partitions point each to a physical drive and are used by Greyhole to mirror selected folders that are greyhole enabled.
Note that partition 1 above, does not need to be on a separate drive, but it is beneficial.
It should also be noted that if doing this in a virtual-machine environment, much of the physical concepts above, go out the window.
