Do people keep the utility partitions that come with PE servers? I know
it can be useful. Yet when I do software RAID-1, I can get mixed up with
partitions because sda0 is the utility partitions and my Linux partitions
start on sda1. So when I make md0, I have to remember to use the 1
partitions, sda1 and sdb1. More than once I made mistakes and spent a lot
of time tracking down why its not working. Whereas if I delete the
utility partitions, I can make md0 with sda0 and sdb0.
The limitation is solely mine. I am not criticizing the presence of the
utility partition. And I do realize I can delete if it better for me. I
am wondering what other people do.
