Hi ayushdatt
Are all the Power and Data cables attached properly to your unit? If they are not showing up under /dev then there appears to be some Hardware issue. You can use the following
Code:
lshw -businfo
. The 'lshw' app can be installed on most linux distros.

PS Welcome to the forum

With rehle5 it is easy, call rehle5 support. It is commercial product and you as a paying customer are entitled to get professional help.

We did help you out with commands...CALL RED HAT SUPPORT, since you're using RHEL5, and that is a product you PAY FOR. Did you try LOOKING for the lshw command, or ANYTHING???

Well, since you can't find the disks, won't post ANY useful details about your hardware, what you've done/tried, and since you're using RHEL5 (which is OLD AND UNSUPPORTED at this point, unless it's 5.11 which has VERY limited support at this point) and Oracle, you should be PAYING FOR SUPPORT FROM BOTH ORACLE AND RED HAT....CALL THEM. We can't guess as to your situation, hardware, or somehow 'know' what you've done/tried. Provide details, and we MAY be able to help, but otherwise, we can't guess.

Welcome to LQ. Please take the time to review the forum guidelines in the Site FAQ and other helpful links.

Your problem description is lacking and your thread title is improper. Please understand that you'll find more helpful assistance if you take the time to properly describe your issue and illustrate what you've tried to do to solve it already.

As others have pointed out:
  1. You should show more details on what you have tried and not merely ask for a full solution from the forum, this is so that you may learn how to do on your own part as you progress forwards.
  2. RHEL is licensed and they provide support. The specific commands to help you with your particular problem are expected to be unique for your particular setup and they will review all the drive and resource names prior to giving you their recommendations.

Sorry you are getting beat up here ayushdatt.

My guess is you can't have a /dev/sdd unless there is a real device associate to it. Almost all programs that would need to use real access have a way to test.

Could you please give more detail as to exactly what you're asking for here?

Again, you are NOT PROVIDING ANY USEFUL DETAILS AT ALL. We cannot guess as to what you're talking about. Read the "Question Guidelines" link in my posting signature, as you've been asked to a couple of times now. You also need to read the "How to ask a smart question" link too, since a subject of "bad" is meaningless.

WHAT 'control files' are you talking about?? Controlling WHAT?

You have told us NOTHING about your hardware, your configuration, etc. Without knowing anything about what you're talking about, we cannot guess. It has also been pointed out to you that you are using RHEL 5, which is VERY old and unsupported, and you're using Oracle (but again, do not tell us what VERSION), which is ALSO a commercial, pay-for product. Have you contacted support for either RHEL or Oracle????

Answering illiterate posts is not rewarding.
Sloppy writing is a good way to alienate potential helpers.

ayushdatt is listed as a new LQ member. We don't know the OP's level of skill.

Let's try to be friendly with responses please.
