OS : RedHat Enterprise Linux Advanced Platform
Database : sybase
Disk partitions :
sda : Logical Volume System with root and swap
sdb : Logical Volume Databases with LV database1, LV log1, LV database2, LV log2
I've made a RAW binding between /dev/raw/raw1 and /dev/sdb doing :
in etc/udev/rules.d/60-raw.rules :
action=="add", kernel=="sdb", run+="raw /dev/raw/raw1 %N"
then udevtest /block/sdb
gives me : main : run : '/bin/raw /dev/raw/raw1 /dev/.tmp-8-16
--> so the udev-rules work properly (according the redhat-manual)
I then give the start_udev -command and this gives me no problems.
to check if the raw-device exists : raw -qa
/dev/raw/raw1: bound to major 8, minor 16
Now, in fstab I still see that all my logical volumes exist, and they have the ext3 file system.
I think I now have a raw device and also still my logical volumes ?!
Will sybase see the raw device to place a database on it ?
I'm troubled with the question whether I now have a raw device sdb or not ?!
