how do I tell which disk needs e2fsck ran?


I get a message on re-boot that indicates I need to run e2fsck. How can I tie the sd (8,65) message to which disk needs fixing? Here's an example:
EXT3-fs warning: mounting fs with errors, running e2fsck is recommended
EXT3 FS 2.4-0.9.19, 19 August 2002 on sd(8,65), internal journal

Hello!

You need to run e2fsck, since the filesystem is ext3.

Greetings

I know I need to run e2fsck, but on which disk? How do I tell which disk needs e2fsck based on the message. I can't find a way to correlate the "sd (8,65)" to scsi device sda1 for instance?

Easiest (though it does not answer your question) is to issue the following command as root:
shutdown -rF
Which will reboot and Force a fsck when the machine starts up. Checking partitions that do not have errors will do no harm.

Thanks for the suggestions, but there still should be a way to identify which disk needs fixing?
