I have a friend that I'm trying to help out from off-site. He had a CentOS 4 server with a RAID5 set being served through an Adaptec 2110S card. He started having problems with his box and for some reason decided to re-install from scratch to CentOS 5.
I'm able to fdisk the RAID5 partition located at /dev/i2o/hda1, so I know that the new install is at least seeing the raid set. However, I'm not able to mount the disk. It should be noted that the RAID array was composed of 4 disks in a RAID5 configuration, with only one (I think, fdisk only showing one partition) partition. It was set up using LVM, which could be at the root of the problem.
Here is the output of the mount command:
root@box[~]: mount /dev/i2o/hda1 /temp
mount: you must specify the filesystem type
I need to be able to temporarily mount this partition to be able to pull off some data, but I don't see an option specific to LVM.
I think this may have something to do with the fact that it was set up using LVM rather than just regular ext3. If there is any other information that I can provide, please don't hesitate to let me know...this is my first time posting.
