Struggling!


I have installed Ubuntu server on an old pc of mine with the view of running a media server.

I have used this guide and so far its been great. But right nom im totally stuck trying to get 3 hard drives i have hooked up working.

I have a 250, a 320 and a 1000Gb drive connected via sata, all show up in the GUI and in Terminal. I have formatted and partitioned each drive via Webmin 1.660 and the created a logical volume group called 'big' with each drive in the group totalling 1.43gb

This drive shows up in my GUI but i cannot access it or mount it or use it.

What am i doing wrong?

Many thanks

Hi. If you can use\mount it as root\su or sudo then you probably just need user permissions setup although I've not played with volume management in some time... best wishes and have fun.

Did you activate the volume group?

As root:
Code:
# vgchange -ay
How do they show up in the terminal? What command are you using to display them? Please provide the output of the commands you are using.

Also, what is the output of the following?

As root:
Code:
# pvscan -v
# vgscan -v
# lvscan 
# df
# mount

Sorry it's all sorted. A silly mistake of mine.

Now my issue lies with permissions. I have a samba server setup and a shared folder with permission 755 assigned to it and visible on my windows machine. when i try to copy a file to that directory I'm told i need permission..which i have?
