Duplicate entries in RX2660?

I have a single CPU RX2660. With a single drive in the system, I see both fs0 and fs1 which I fully expect. However when I do an ls on fs0 and fs1, the contents on both filesystems are identical. Why is that so? Any assistance is very much appreciated.

Maybe the mapped fsX entries point to the same file system on the drive.

I would run

Shell> map -fs

I've tried that. I've also tried a different drive with different OS and the contents of fs0 is still the same as fs1.

Hi,

Could you please post

shell>map -r

Re: Duplicate entries in RX2660?

besides the 'map -r' can you also post the output of the 'ls -r' output


What OS is installed on this system ?
Does it still boot ?
When you boot to the OS and mount the EFI partition, create a new folder on it (i.e. \test) , on which fsx: is this new folder written fs0: or fs1: ?

A couple of things..

> I've tried that. I've also tried a different drive with different OS and the contents of fs0 is still the same as fs1.

When you are swapping the drive are you doing so without resetting the server? If so, then use 'reconnect -r' to rescan the hardware buses for devices and then use 'map -r' to display them.

The rx2660 uses an internal SAS controller allowing for simply RAID 1 volumes. Are you using that controller to build the volumes? That would change the way they are presented.


In short, there is no real reason for you to see two fs instances with the same data, unless you actually have two volumes with the same data (for example; mirrored boot drives using LVM).
