mkfs and mounting large (1.4TB) hardware raid array.
I have a large hardware raid array that has 1.4TB or thereabouts, and i need to
make it into a linux format and then mount it to /dev/ras1.
so what i tried to do was:
which is seemed to do (it took a while) then the last message that came up was:
ext2fs_mkdir: Attempt to read block from filesystem resulted in short read
while creating root dir.
then went to prompt. When i tryed to mount it using:
mount /dev/sda /mnt/ras1
it then gives the standard message cant mount might be bad block or wrong type
Any ideas please?
i am now trying out ext3. i am sure i will have the same problems.
