Filesystem questions


IŽam about to resize a partition since we added 2 more harddrives.

But one thing that confuses me is that when I run the command fdisk -l, it says:
[root@nice init.d]# fdisk -l

Disk /dev/cciss/c0d0: 73.3 GB, 73372631040 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 8920 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

           Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/cciss/c0d0p1   *           1          13      104391   83  Linux
/dev/cciss/c0d0p2              14        8920    71545477+  8e  Linux LVM

Disk /dev/cciss/c0d1: 587.1 GB, 587127898112 bytes
255 heads, 32 sectors/track, 140531 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 8160 * 512 = 4177920 bytes

Disk /dev/cciss/c0d1 doesn't contain a valid partition table
And df -H gives me:
[root@nice init.d]# df -H
Filesystem             Size   Used  Avail Use% Mounted on
                        69G    47G    19G  72% /
/dev/cciss/c0d1        289G   259G    17G  95% /usr1
/dev/cciss/c0d0p1      104M    33M    66M  34% /boot
tmpfs                  4.3G      0   4.3G   0% /dev/shm
The partition that IŽam going to expand is /dev/cciss/c0d1, and that is the partition fdisk says: "Disk /dev/cciss/c0d1 doesn't contain a valid partition table"

Can I ignore the error or do I have a problem here?

Do you have a backup of /usr1 ?

260Gig of data might be a tight fit on an SDLT tape, but I would not want to expand /usr1 without a valid backup.
