SUSE Linux Raw lvm problem.

Hi Guruz,
In current set up i have IBM server and running SUSE linux 6 and its booting from SAN Storage(EMC Clarion) and also some disk was presented before as raw logical volume created and they install oracle on this servers.Every thing is working fine before.

Customer was wanted to create new raw logical volume and recreate the database on new logical raw volume.SO new disk group was created and presented the server also new vg and raw lvol created successfully.

Now the issue is when customer going to create the database in newly created raw lvol he is getting below error message

ORA-01122: database file 2 failed verification check
ORA-01110: data file 2: '/oracle/oradata/SID/SID_raw_undo'
ORA-01251: Unknown File Header Version read for file number 2

And in dmesg below entries are repeated.

Re: SUSE Linux Raw lvm problem.

SuSE Linux _6_? That was originally released back in December 1998 and uses a 2.0.* series kernel. In Linux terms, this is ancient history.

No modern version of Oracle would be supported on such an old version of Linux.

You would also have to be very cautious when reading any modern documentation, as many things have changed since then and the current documentation may not be appropriate for such an old system.

Please identify the Oracle version you're using. Also please show us the output of the following commands:

cat /etc/SuSE-release
uname -a
