Mount the San disk on Linux RH4 server

Hello,

We just moved 100gb San space from one linux server to another, when i ran the df -k, i couldn't see the san disk on the second linux server.

Here is the result from fdisk -l command:


Disk /dev/cciss/c0d0: 146.7 GB, 146778685440 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 17844 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

Disk /dev/sda doesn't contain a valid partition table

Disk /dev/sdb: 107.1 GB, 107156078592 bytes

Disk /dev/sdb doesn't contain a valid partition table


And the error messages from /var/log/messages are:

from the fstab file i can see this line:

/dev/VolGroupSAN-OraDb/LogVol-SAN-OraDb /laserfiche ext3 defaults
1 2

but when i go to /dev, i cannot find VolGroupSAN-OraDb.

Could you guys tell me which commands i can run to mount the san disk, do i need to format the disk?

thanks a bunch

Leah

Re: Mount the San disk on Linux RH4 server

Shalom Leah,

Choices:
reboot, see if the new disks are recognized.

Instal PSP for Proliant, all options.

hp_rescan
Scans the fiber channel and identifies new disks.

Re: Mount the San disk on Linux RH4 server

PSP can be installed Leah, without a reboot.

Then you will have hp_rescan and be able to resolve this issue.
