Partition & filesystem creation question
I'm a n00b with a question.
I have a system running RHEL v4 with 2 hard drives in a hardware Raid 0 config. I did a kickstart/cd installation, installed the necessary rpms from command line, and then found out I need another partition. /var is in a 47G partition. I copied /var to a temp directory on another partition, redid /dev/cciss/c0d0p2 (the physical partition that /var is in), then chose to add 1 extended and 4 logical partitions to c0d0p2. So now I've got c0d0p2p1 extended, and c0d0p2p5, c0d0p2p6, c0d0p2p7, c0d0p2p8 logical partitions. I need to create file systems in these partitions so that I may create mountpoints for them... one of the logicals will contain/mount to /var. The others are needed for an Oracle install, where I have to mount /u01, /u01/redo1, /u01/archive. I'll be mounting more /u01/.. directories on a SAN.. I've already got the file systems created in the partitions there. Am I approaching this correctly? Any hints?
