Hey everyone,
Anyone here know the steps to setting up raid 10 in terminal (el capitan)? It should still be doable correct?
Thanks,
Matt

You should be able to create a RAID 10 by using the Terminal commands in that link pastrychef provided, by first making two mirrored RAIDs then striping them together afterwards.

Thanks but I've seen that link. I have done raid in terminal before just not much info out there on specifically doing raid 10.

Hmmm, that might work, or it might just over ride the mirrors. I'll give it a try when I get my drives.

Hi wiski15b,

those links helped me to easily build a RAID10 on El capitan :

http://www.cnet.com/news/rebuilding-a-degraded-software-mirrored-raid-array/

and for those who are looking for the Old disk utility from Yosemite, that one from Macomaniac is already patched for El capitan :

http://forums.macg.co/threads/recuperer-lancien-utilitaire-de-disque-dans-el-capitan.1278098/

Put the downloaded file "Disk Oldility" in the Applications folder
Open terminal
Tape "sudo chown -R root:wheel" (Dont forget to add a space at the end)
Drag the "Disk Oldility" into the terminal window, Press Enter and Run the app (takes some time to start).

Hope it helps! :)
