Tenantos has default templates for all common RAID levels:
- RAID 0/1/5/10
The difference to Automatic Partitioning is that the RAID level does not jump to the next higher RAID level after a certain number of hard disks but puts all hard disks into the specified RAID level. For example, a RAID 5 with 7 hard drives.
Spare disks are handled the same way as at Automatic Partitioning. If a disk is left over, it will be configured as a spare disk. For example, in an RAID 1 with three disks, one disk will be configured as a spare disk.
The RAID disk layouts are only displayed to the user if the server has enough disks according to the server inventory.
The /boot partition is always created as RAID 1 for compatibility reasons and the boot loader is automatically installed on all available disks (/dev/sda, /dev/sdb, etc.).
kickstart, autoinstall and preseed templates are supported (CentOS, Ubuntu, ...). Windows PE is not supported at the moment.
As with Automatic Partitioning, the device namings are handled automatically without hard-coding them in the template. This makes it easy when working with different disk types like NVMe or SSD.
