Need to mount Gateway 840 SATA Storage Enclosure. Thru fstab?


We have a Gateway 840 SATA Storage Enclosure set-up and hooked up to a Novell OES (formerly SUSE). We originally had it connected to RH and we backed all of our data up to it. Now that we are migrating to Novell OES, we need to connect it to the Novell OS/Server. We'd like to leave it mounted all the time.

My boss has advised me that this is Linux 101; however, I am not sure how to do it. Novell doesn't offer this support under installation support and Gateway doesn't officially support Linux on this appliance.
This is why I have posted here in this forum.

So I have decided to enlist the Gurus of the Linux World (you guys) for help. Any and all suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Thanx in advance.
Beth

It is a NStor Wahoo controller, but it is hanging off a server running an Intel Controller. I think that's the one we need. Correct? Now the drive seems to be mounted and the OS finds the drive. But it is not pulling up the data on the drive. We have set the file type (ext3) correctly. The ownership and permissions are fine. Basically,
mount /dev/sdb1 /media/sata worked. But no data!

When we try umounting, it complains that its not mounted.
When we try mount or remount, it complains that it is already mounted or busy. When we cd, nothing shows.

Somewhere, I read that systems running EVMS, do not like to mount NAS devices. Is this true? Then how do I mount my NAS on an EVMS system?

THANX a MILLION!

Thanx again and sorry for the delay in getting back.

You are trying to mount the wrong partition.
Use a partitioner or fdisk -l to find out, what do exist on the harddisk(s).
Ext3 is supported by the kernel.
Adaptec Scsi controllers are supported by the kernel.

Thanks! You must be right, b/c we are now definitely mapped. I know this b/c I created a test file and copied it over to the NAS SATA drive. The problem now is that my boss assures me that there is data there, but I am not seeing it.

Nada, nothing! Any ideas?
