    Hello,

    I would like to break RAID-1 on Centos. I prefere using 2 separate disks and cpanel backup instead of raid 1 but I am looking for the exact steps to do that.

    I am able to boot the server in rescue mode if necessary.

    Below some outputs :

    Code:
    root@ns3096378 [~]# df -h

    rootfs                 97G  4.5G   88G   5% /
    /dev/root              97G  4.5G   88G   5% /
    devtmpfs               16G  252K   16G   1% /dev
    /dev/md3              1.7T  235M  1.6T   1% /home

    Hello :)

    This is more of a filesystem issue and not necessarily related to the cPanel software. You will likely receive better input by searching for guides on this on a search engine or checking on a forum dedicated to discussions of RAID. For instance, searching "how to break raid1" on Google yields several results that you might find useful.

    Thank you.
