Is there any way to detect if grub is actually installed on the mbr
correctly? Like without actually doing it?
I personally get bitten by the 'grub silently fails to install on all
the drives in a /boot RAID array' from time to time.
Its a pain in the arse as it requires booting from CD to fix it etc.
And as for weird setups, we do have one machine with 10 drives in RAID1
My preference would be for that even if we have to create a new package
which is 'boot-my-server-at-all-costs' or something then I would install
that as well on my machines.
