Multiple LUN support in Knoppix 6


I was trying to troubleshoot a problematic server. The server, which runs on CentOS 4.x, is attached to Hardware RAID / disk array.

Since the OS partition is having issues, I plan to troubleshoot the server by booting up with Knoppix 6 in "knoppix 2" / text mode. Everything went fine except, I'm not able to see all volumes available on the disk array. Only the first volume is presented.

Based on this, I'm suspecting Knoppix 6 kernel is not supporting Multiple LUN by default, based on a few Google search. Tried kernel parameters such as "max_luns=128" and "max_scsi_luns=128" at boot prompt but no luck.

Any idea how can I enable Multiple LUN support during boot time or right after boot time?

It sounds like you might be better off troubleshooting the problem with a CentOS 4.<match-your-os-kernel-exactly> boot CD.
