SCSI/Fedora


I have installed Fedore on a IDE Hard Drive, and have added Two SCSI Drives. I would like to use the two SCSI Drives to save my files too, I am not running a GUI, Can someone tell me how to mount(if needed) or navagate to the SCSI drives? Thanks!

hello

the first SCSI-drive is dev/sda , the second dev/sdb .
first you have to make 2 folders where to mount your drives:
mkdir /mnt/scsi1
mkdir /mnt/scsi2

then you mount the drives with:
mount -t ext3 /dev/sda /mnt/scsi1
mount -t ext3 /dev/sda /mnt/scsi2
that's all!

to have them mounted every time youre system starts do this:
you edit the file /etc/fstab whit this command joe /etc/fstab
then you have to write
/dev/sda /mnt/scsi1 ext3 defaults 0 0
/dev/sdb /mnt/scsi2 ext3 defaults 0 0

hope it helped!

cheers, boby

If the above does not work you will need to verify that the SCSI modules are being loaded. The command lsmod will display loaded modules. Also the command:
cat /proc/scsi/scsi

If everything is loaded will list your controller and drives. Furthermore, you also need to add the partition id i.e. /dev/sda1 (or whatever the ID really is) to the mount and fstab command. Its the same as an IDE drive.
