adding 2nd hard drive to logical volume??
okay so i added my drive, formatted it with fdisk, and turned it into one big partition as it's just going to be for random storage.
currently i have a single drive on a logical volume, and i'm trying to get the new drive mounted. i'm following my linux bible as to how to do this, and it tells me to add the line
/dev/hdd1 /(mount dir) ext3 defaults 1 1
to fstab, which i did...
/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 / ext3 defaults 1 1
LABEL=/boot /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
sysfs /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol01 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/hdd1 /drive2 ext3 defaults 1 1
my question is, did i put this in the right place? also am i going about this all wrong? should i just add it to the logical volume (which i can do through logical volume management via gnome)? or do i have to do both? the book is pretty vague when it comes to logical volumes, in fact there isn't even a heading in the index for it. as far as i understand the drive isn't being recognized, as evidenced by:
[root@dustyfedora ~]# mount
/dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00 on / type ext3 (rw)
proc on /proc type proc (rw)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw)
devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,gid=5,mode=620)
/dev/hda1 on /boot type ext3 (rw)
tmpfs on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw)
none on /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc type binfmt_misc (rw)
sunrpc on /var/lib/nfs/rpc_pipefs type rpc_pipefs (rw)
i've spent the better part of my day trying to figure this out by myself to avoid this post, so i apologize if my stupidity is just blatantly obvious.
