Preparing for zfs filesystem
I ordered the new RAM on Tuesday. It was in my mailbox Friday afternoon.
You gotta love vendors like that.
I hesitated to install it, not knowing if having only 8GB of swap would
pose a problem. I figured if I backed up everything, there was no harm
in trying. So today I took it down, installed the new RAM, and fired it
back up again. It recognized all 32GB and didn't blow up.
I figured it would be easier and faster to re-install CentOS than to
shrink and grow primary partitions. First I saved a list of all
# rpm -qa | sort > ~/rpms_installed.txt
Then I saved some key custom files like:
After a minimal install, I used that rpm list to reinstall what I had
# for i in `cat ~/rpms_installed.txt` ; do yum -y install $i ; done
This has taken me all afternoon and most of the evening. I'm now at a
point where I'm ready to take down the /dev/md127p1 software RAID5 array
and start working on a zfs filesystem in its place.
