Unhappy Linux Server Disks


Hello,

I notice there are 2 disks attached to my Linux Server.
(/dev/sdb1 and /dev/sda1 with names /DISK2 and /DISK1)

How can I browse these attached disks and define a filesystem for each and attach a mount a data folder on each one ?

I am using Linux Red Hat Enterprise 3 (WS)

Regards,

Paolo

Try doing...

cd /disk1

or

cd /DISK1

and see if that works.

If not, try doing this...

mkdir /mnt/disk1
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/disk1
cd /mnt/disk1

Now you should be looking at the contents of disk1.

If these are using RAID, then I may not be able to help you much.

Unhappy DISK1+ DISK2

Hello,

Yes, cd /DISK1 and cd /DISK2 works !!!
Thanks for the tip.

Also, cd /mnt/cdrom works also.
However, I don't see anything from the cdrom content.
Under DISK1 and DISK2 I see, lost+found.

What does that mean ?
DO I need to mount a data folder to install file systems on each of the 2 disks ?

Regards

Paolo

Dont know why you can't see anything in the CDROM. Should be able to ls and see the files in there.

The lost+found is used for cleaning up file fragments. It's typical for it to be there and probably means you're running a journaled filesystem like ext3. Just ignore it.

You can just make directories there as usual, like...

mkdir /DISK1/whateveryouwant

and you are making your directory on the DISK1 hard drive.

Unhappy CD-ROM

Hello,

For what ever reason I don't see anything under the cdrom folder.
Under the User MOunt Tools, I see /dev/cdrom, /mnt/cdrom and udf,iso9660.

For Disk1 and Disk2, I see /dev/sdb1, /DISK2, ext3 and /dev/sda1, /DISK1 ext3

I am having problems with the CD-ROM drive. I don't even see it under the Konqueror.

Any ideas ? Is it installed properly if at all ?

Regards,

Paolo

Not sure man. I actually only use mine once. I use it to install the OS when the system boots and after that, I remove it from the system so I have another free IDE channel. From then on, I use an updater to keep the system current.

Maybe one of the other nice people here will give you some good input.
