Linux msa 500 g2


We have inherited some redhat servers.

we have two servers connected to a single msa500.

I can see that it has been setup at a hardware level to two raid 5 areas of 203 GB. Both areas are seen on each of the two nodes.using the hpacucli utility

However I cannot identify which logical drive and set of physical disks is presented to which node. Both nodes tell me that the 203 GB area is /dev/cciss/c2d0 as the physical drive in the vgdisplay.

More concerning is i cannot see anththing protecting the logical drive from node1 from being used by the second node of the 2 nodes.

Is there anyone out there that can help

Both systems:

Please post fdisk -l output.

If there are file systems mounted please post again for both systems df -kh output.

Since there are thousands of linux distributions, it might help you get better help if you disclose which Linux distribution you are using.
