RAID 5 on ML 370 G5


After installing operating system Debian 5.0 lenny, I receive an error message "Disk /dev/cciss/c0d1 doesn't contain a valid partition table"

fdisk -l

Disk /dev/cciss/c0d0: 73.3 GB, 73372631040 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 8920 cylinders

Disk /dev/cciss/c0d1 doesn't contain a valid partition table

What are the options regarding this?

Re: RAID 5 on ML 370 G5

It appears you've created two logical drives. The first is 73gb, and that looks like where Debian installed /dev/cciss/c0d0
c0d0 translates to controller zero disk zero
p1 p2 and p5 are partition numbers. Linux is installed on partition 1 and the swap space is on partition 5. You need to run fdisk against /dev/cciss/c0d1 the 2nd logical drive which is 440 GB and create a partition. Next make a file system, then create a mount point and mount the file system. edit /etc/fstab with the new file system information.
