Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have 2-32 bit Redhat 4.2 (2.6.9-67.0.15.ELsmp) servers connected through a Brocade switch to 2 disk arrays. One array is a NexStor8f and the other is an NexStor18f. The NexStor8f is set to use addresses 1-8 and the Nexstor18f is set to use 18-35.
On boot, the POST for the fibre card on both servers shows it acquires 26 disks and the controller at address 15. However, the dmesg command shows that it only configures the first 25 disks and leaves the last disk off of the NexStor18f.
Has anyone seen this behavior? I am using a LSI Logic FC909 fibre card in each node.
During the card configuration it allows reset to address 27 for the card but on reboot it forgets this and resets to 15 which appears to be causing the issue, for some reason the card bios is not being updated, anyone have a work around?
The arrays are both connected through a single connection to the brocade as are the servers. The switch is set up with a single zone which includes the two servers and disk arrays.
