Hey Dear's,

I Have a problem with the storage,

Little bro in linux

I suspect it's because it's raided. Is it software or hardware raid, because what you would need to check will be different.

Well the reason I ask, is if it were hardware raid, it could just be missing drivers but anyway. As I dunno the configuration you are using this is a little tricky and just a guess... the screenshot you have given seems to imply they are raid5 devices. If this is software raid then what you need to mount would be the raid device rather then directly mounting the hard drive, if your using mdadm it'd be mdx (where x is a number) check to see if their is a md0 or a md1? Might be worth comparing the output of mount from the servers that do detect the drives to those that do not?
