Disk issue

Hi,

I have facing issue is that i have configured rx2660 server with six sas drives attached to it.
Now when i installed OS on that it is showing only two disks. One disk for OS and other disk is showing combined of all rest five disks.
I am not understanding why five six has combined and showing it as a single disk.

Re: Disk issue

You have a martarray controller installed, so you see logical drives (LUNs).


From ioscan get the /dev/ciss file and do

# sautil /dev/ciss_

and

# saconfig /dev/ciss_

to see the configuration details.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Re: Disk issue

I am getting that /dev/ciss in ioscan command.

See the below o/p.

Re: Disk issue

You say you are an expert in this area ...


# ioscan -fn


and you get sometging like

/dev/ciss1

now do

# sautil /dev/ciss1

and

# saconfig /dev/ciss1


I assume you have a RAID1 for the boot LUN and a RAID5 for the remaining disks.





No disk issue at all.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: Disk issue

Hi,

I have checked its showing this

---- LOGICAL DRIVE SUMMARY ---------------------------------------------------

# RAID Size Status

0 1+0 139979 MB OK
1 0 559929 MB OK

It means my root disk is mirrored and other disk are raid 0.
But my root disk is not mirrored.
Is there any way to split all my disks separate?

Re: Disk issue

Based on this very little piece of information you provided it looks like the boot disk is a RAID1 (mirrored).


A smartarray cannot allow access to the physical disks directly, but you can create several RAIDs (RAID1 or 5 or even 0) and logical drives within.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: Disk issue

Hi

Like Torsten said, you have several disk plugged into smartarray. this smartarray is configured in two volumes, one of this is in RAID1, for O.S, and the other one could be in RAID5, for data.
In case of the first one volume, the Smartarray present you like only one disk, and you think is not in mirror.

Re: Disk issue

Now you can see t clearly, disks in bay 3 and 4 are mirrored; disks in bays 5,6,7 and 8 are forming a RAID0.

You can work with saconfig to delete the RAID0 and create something different.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.
