Hopefully this is possible...
I have a Dell 2650 running RH AS 3.0 Update 3 attached to a SAN with about 20 disks visible to it. I have one internal disk, and a dual-port QLOGIC 2342 HBA.
My problem is any time I add/remove SAN devices, the disk assignment for my internal disk changes and wont boot, of course. I can make the SAN device assignment persistent via the QLOGIC driver feature, but I dont know how to make the internal device persistent. I can get around finding/mounting additional non-boot internal devices by referencing the device labels in /etc/fstab. If possible, I would like to do the following;
1) Reserve sda for use only by the internal disk and the additional SAN devices can append onwards (b,c,d,e,f, etc)
2) Ability to reserve additional devices for internal disks.
Comments/suggestions greatly welcomed!
