Scsi Riad

Hi guys,

Please bear with me because I'm a little bit of a newbie but learning fast

I have this output, from a remote server:

$ cat /etc/redhat-release
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES release 3 (Taroon Update 4)

$ df -k
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/cciss/c0d0p2 1032072 907900 71744 93% /
/dev/cciss/c0d0p1 252863 10717 229091 5% /boot
/dev/cciss/c0d0p6 64098772 3080 60839652 1% /in
none 512700 0 512700 0% /dev/shm
/dev/cciss/c0d0p5 4104144 1451796 2443864 38% /usr

Does this mean I have 1 72GB disk, or 2 32GB disks in RAID-0?

I think:
c0 - Controller 0
d0 - Disk 0
pX - Partition X

If this is correct it means I have 1 disk around 72gig.

Am I right?

Many thanks,

You seem to have 1 72GB disk, but I'm not sure how a hardware raid array would show up (it may depend on your controller and setup...). The best way to know for sure is to open the case (if this is a remote system, this strategy may not be practical)! Try using tools such as smartctl to probe the device directly.
