Is it possible to introduce in a RAID 1 setup a larger drive using its free space for further uses?
What we have:
sda - 250 GB HD |-- sda1 - /boot |-- sda2 - / sdb - 500 GB HD |-- sdb1 - /boot |-- sdb2 - / |-- sdb3 - whatever md - RAID1 setup |-- md0 - /boot - sd[ab]1 |-- md1 - / - sd[ab]2
In this case we could use
sdb3 for something else. Is this possible? I've never set up a software RAID and this struck my mind.
