You can re-use your raid setup, but you will have to delete any raid configs on them. (A command like sudo mdadm --zero-superblock /dev/xvdf might help if you do need to delete the raid array)

Create Physical Volume

Create a physical volume that uses all your EBS volumes.

Create Volume Group

Create a volume group that uses all your devices. Your volume group should be named mastergroup. (Hint: after you create it, the size should be about 3.98g)

Create Logical Volumes

Create the following logical volumes:

Name Size MountPoint Special
volume1 504M /dirs/v1 Should be set up with –type of raid5
volume2 352M /dirs/v2 Should be set up with –type of raid1
volume3 500M /dirs/v3
volume4 1500M /dirs/v4

Mount Logical Volumes

Put entries in /etc/fstab so that these directories will automatically be mounted at boot time. Make sure it actually works. Just use the default options for each.
