    We have a server Without boot partition. Does Boot partitions are not necessary. Since it’s the same drive, the data will be saved on the same drive. It’s not required to have a boot part? Please let me know that Do we face any issue in future without /boot partition?

    It's not strictly necessary to have a separate boot partition - if you're not using RAID or LVM then it makes no difference operationally, although potentially it gives you some extra flexibility in the event of a corrupt partition or file system. Nothing to worry about though as you are currently configured.

    Yes I am using Hardware RAID. So /boot partition are not Recommended? As I know A /boot partition Recommended Partitioning Scheme.

    Hi @Nirjonadda,

    The Arch wiki has some nice information on raids:
    RAID - ArchWiki
    So if you're using RAID1, then a single '/' partition may be possible, but I would certainly opt for a separate partition.
