How Acronis True Image Server for Linux works with software RAIDs (md-devices)
Acronis True Image Server for Linux supports software RAIDs (md-devices).
In live Linux you can back up mounted software arrays and restore them on a partition or on a previously created md-device. While restoring using bootable rescue media, Acronis True Image Server for Linux tries to detect and activate available software RAIDs. If RAID is detected, you will be able to restore your image on it. But if no RAIDs are found (or you restore on a bare metal box), Acronis True Image Server for Linux will not be able to create and activate RAID using image data. In such a case you should create RAID manually (i.e. by booting from your distribution CD first) and then restore your data from the image archive using Acronis True Image Server for Linux bootable rescue media.
For additional information on backing up RAID arrays please see Acronis True Image Echo Server for Linux user's guide (chapter 3.7. Backing up software and hardware RAID arrays).
