I am installing RH 5 64 bits in a HP Dl580.. the server has its local disk and an external storage p2ooo ....
the idea is to create a big partition in the storage and /root in the local raid10.
if I install my system creating / and /boot (dev/cciss/c0d0p1 2..) in the local raid and create /var in the storage(sda1) with let say 200GB, it works fine... but when I do the same with /var of 1.6 TB, after the system finish the installation and reboot I get this error:
fsck.ext3 unable to resolve 'label=var'
and the system go to maintenance mode(asking root password)
there is not LVM configured.
if this normal? should I do something different for that space of 1.7
