OSX 10.4 Tiger upgrade destoy RAID-0 from 10.3.x
on Jul 13, 2005 at 1:54:13 pm

I thing, that 10.4 uipgrade is the worst Apple upgrade yet.
Upgrading system from 10.3.x to 10.4 with RAID-0 disc cause to destroy this RAID.
Apple upgraded Disk utility to new version, but it seems to be uncompatible backwards with RAID from 10.3.x

And without message are all data lost.

poseidon$ diskutil checkRAID

RAID was made fro disk2+disk3, but /dev/disk2 donk know that belong to RAID on /dev/disk4 and in system is seen as normal unformated volume

Thank you Apple - perfect work :-((

Since the Apple RAID 0 is a software RAID, it is wise to consider this before upgrading from one major OS version to another.

I unloaded my two drive RAID system before installing Tiger, but amazingly, it was still active when I booted up after the install.

As it is ALWAYS suggested - be sure to BACKUP any thing important before updating or installing software.

You are right, backuping is right way,
But make backwards incompatible OS without warning users is not good way.

Uunaccesible drive/raid after upgrade - it is good, because I can connect discs to 10.3.x system and use data.
But destroing data on discs - it is the worse case.

If software RAID version was changed - system must warn users, and dont change anything on discs to prevent data and not destoy data and destroy RAID.

Unaccesible data can be accessed in 10.3.x, but 10.4 dont make data inaccesible, but 10.4 destoy RAID and data cannot be accessed anymore from any (old or new) system..

[John Foley] "I unloaded my two drive RAID system before installing Tiger, but amazingly, it was still active when I booted up after the install."

Same here... upgrading to 10.4 did not cause the loss of my RAID either (SATA raid 0).
