cciss - what is it
Hello, I've searched your forums w/o luck on this question, but what is cciss? If I see a partition on Oracle Enterprise Linux 5 4 (shown below)
# fdisk -l
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/cciss/c0d0p1 * 1 13 104391 83 Linux
/dev/cciss/c0d0p2 14 8920 71545477+ 8e Linux LVM
I'm not familar with that format. Usually, you'll see /dev/sdaX or /dev/mapper/VolGroupXXLogVolYY for partitions. Has anyone ever seen a tutorial on why devices are set up this way? Also what does the "c", the "d", the "p" stand for?
