Elastix RAID setup, including how to recover from a failure.
A new document has appeared on Elastix Application notes, that will take you step by step, through the process. It covers the setup of RAID at Elastix install time. Without going in to complex RAID setups that fail to recover ultimately, the document will guide you how to setup software Linux RAID that is a part of CentOS, which is Elastix distribution based on.
Document covers following sections and I find 'recovery' inclusion a great asset. You can also adapt the same method to other Asterisk setups.
