Question RocketRAID 2320 problem - Fedora 8


Hello,

I purchased a Highpoint RocketRAID 2320 which I successfully installed on Fedora 8. I have been using it without issue for over a month with a 4-drive RAID-5 setup. Recently I purchased a 5th hard drive, shut the computer down, and plugged the new drive in. When I restarted the computer I went into the RAID BIOS and it showed the new drive there. I initialized the new drive without issue.

Upon rebooting I received the following error:

special device /dev/sdb does not exist

Obviously my raid filesystem would not mount and the RAID config utility that ships with these cards can not connect to my Array.

I shut the computer down and removed the new drive thinking it might have caused the problem. Booting with my previously working configuration, I am still receiving the same error. Please help!

Brian

I got my drivers from the manufacturer's website. They only provide precompiled drivers for Fedora 1-7 so I had to download the sourcecode and compile it myself. As I stated in my message, the RAID card and array worked flawlessly for over a month.
