CentOS 5 Hardware :: ASUS M3A78-CM RAID1 Not Recognized
Aug 28, 2009
OS Version: CentOS 5.3
Motherboard: ASUS M3A78-CM (BIOS v.2003)
I have a single disk running the base OS and just installed 2 x Seagate 500GB SATA 3.0 drives in a RAID1 set that I would like to use for data storage. The OS sees the drives individually but not the RAID. Has anyone worked with a similar board and has any ideas what I need to do to get the OS to recognize the RAID1 array?
I can install Debian just fine, nothing looked wrong... but for some reason i cannot boot into Debian. apparently it's not JUST Debian either; it looks like it's Ubuntu(using a liveCD), too (haven't tried DSL yet).
My Asus k52 BBR9 was working great with Meerkat until I put in all the updates.Now it won't recognize my wireless: it says were connected and the icon is clear or it is dark or has the icon look pulsing where there is my connection. But I can't get online.
just installed opensuse 11.3 on my asus eee pc 1018p and have severe problems to make the wireless network card work. tried to install the driver with ndiswrapper and b43-cutter, but without any success. ifconfig does not show any wlan0 device. below find output of
lspci -v dmesg ifconfig
installed opensuse on several notebooks/netbooks before but never ran into serious trouble.
My office has a box which is, by necessity, dual-boot WinXP/Slack. The Slackware I'm running there is -current, all great and fine. Until now... It turned out that my mobo, an ASUS P5KPL-CM, died after a power surge. Since the XP needs software activation, we replaced it for an exact copy of the mobo. After the change the box worked fine in XP, and I was able to connect to the network via the Ethernet interface. BTW, the Slackware version is Slackware-current, updated as of the Jan 9 update (after that I was no longer able to connect to the Net with Slack). However, in Slackware there was a problem: eth0 was no longer recognized. Using /sbin/ifconfig only listed the lo (loopback) interface. The lspci output is:
i cant get this right for some reason. i switched from ubuntu to fedora. in ubuntu i had the same issue with the touchpad, but there i found a fix which worked with ubuntu, but not with fedora.[URL]... the problem in fedora is that i dont have any psmouse.ko module in /lib/modules/22.214.171.124/kernel/drivers/input/mouse so the patch cant really be applied so i get an error, saying there is no psmouse
i found a fix, but since my knowledge with linux is limited i didnt get it right. "I spent some time trying to get this working (and one will find other threads here, on the Fedora list, etc, where I was trying to get help), but the problem, in the end, is that Fedora doesn't install the PS/2 mouse driver as a module, but builds it into the kernel. So the solution was to recompile the kernel using the changed files from System 76's repo.
This is not nearly as difficult as it sounds. The process described in the Fedora docs, under Building a Custom Kernel, is easy enough to follow. In my case, it was even easier. I unpacked the kernel source by following the steps down through "Prepare the Kernel Source Tree" and then copied the source for the new "module" into drivers/input/mouse, replacing just the elantech.h and elantech.c files. I don't really care about getting an RPM, so I just built the kernel"[URL]..
I am using CentOS 5.2. I am installing from disc on a machine with Intel Embedded Server Raid Technology. It has two 500 GB SATA drives. During the initial boot process, it sees that these two devices exist. However, after getting into the screen to partition and configure RAID, it just shows this:
Drive /dev/mapper/ddf1_MegaSR R! #0 (475879 MB) (Model: Linux device-mapper)
I want to do a RAID1 so that the disks are mirrored. However, I would expect to see both drives listed. I can select RAID to create RAID partitions, but I think I need to be able to see both drives in order to do this correctly.
Today I made a samba-share out of /Video/Rorschach to easily put files in there from my windows7-machine (the plan is to steam from my CentOS-server to my HTPC which hasn't arrived yet).I started to put movies in there. It went just fine for a while but then I got this message:
How is that even possible when df -h looks like this?:
[root@Rorschach Rorschach]# df -h Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00 446G 70G 354G 17% /
I'm new to Centos and very new to RAID/hd setup. I have a old HP proliant G3 ML150. I have no drivers cd or other, only the server. I have created a RAID1 array (named SYSTEM) with 2 HD of 250GB from the controller and have installed Centos 5.2 (updated after to 5.6). The installation is ok. Now I have added 2 HD of 1TB each and have created another RAID1 array (named DATI) from the controller. This RAID is to store data files. (And next I have to add another RAID1 for backup, but this is to do next week). how can I format and add it to Centos so I can use it?
I got an Asus M3A78-T motherboard last year, along with a Phenom 9650 CPU and 2GB of RAM. I originally tried to install Sabayon, but it would occasionally hang while running. I decided to give Fedora another try (wasn't happy with FC4 a few years back) at the constant chiding of my friend.
My first try was with the x86_64 Fedora 10 ISO, using an IDE hard drive and CDROM. It would hang a little bit into something like 'copying system files, at the same place every time. Thinking it was a bad burn, bad iso, or something (checksum and image verification passed) I went ahead and got the DVD ISO. The DVD would always hang a little bit into "Formatting file system." At this point, I have tried EVERY other combination of hardware - swapped out ram, CPU, PS, bought SATA hard drive and DVDROm drive, unplugged the mouse, and even the case pigtails for USB and Firewire. It always hangs in the same place. Somewhere along the process, I took the motherboard back and exchanged it for a new one. Still fails, and in exactly the same place.
The system hang is a hard lockup. Mouse freezes, no keyboard activity (even LED status changes.) The drive activity LED will go out and the progress bar stops advancing.
I'm surprised I'm not seeing anyone else with this problem - I thought this board was a bit more prevalent, but I'm guessing not! What's my next step? I would create a bug report, but I don't know what subsystem is causing the hang. I suspect SATA drivers, but I'm not sure how to test that.
And one other clue - I get a scrambled video screen before it comes up to the first X install screen:
It only lasts for 5 seconds or so, then comes up okay.
I'm running a fresh install on an intel i7 system on an asus p6t deluxe v2 motherboard with the onboard NIC (Marvell Technology pci-e). I know the NIC is working as when I boot into the onboard OS that Asus provides (Asus Express Gate SSD)I have a working net connection.Booting up CentOS hangs at determining IP information for eth0 and eventually fails with the following error:PING xxx.170.30.1 from xxx.170.31.231 eth0: 56(84) bytes of data---xxx.170.30.1 ping statistics ---4 packets transmitted, o received, +3 errors, 100% packet loss, time 2999ms, pipe 3 failed.
I was try to compile the drirver from cd asus, but my lan card still not detected in centos 5.3. when i bringing up eth0 its show like : "the atl2 device eth0 does not to be present, delaying initialization."iwas suft on google some driver but all driver just to centos 5.3 when i install the rpm it does not work. i love centos i dont want to change my lovely centos.
I have software RAID 1 on two physical discs. There are now 4 md -partitions (md0 ... md3), which are used in such as / and /home among others. Now current size of /home (md3) is starting to be full, and since / (md1) has more than plenty of free space I decided to fix the situation by shrinking / (md1) partition to free 40 Gigs of space and then growing /home (md3) partition for that 40 Gigs.
I already checked for some info using mdadm and got the following:
Now I would need some support on HOW exactly should I do this resizing since it is on RAID partitions.
Would it be good to use resize2fs to modify the filesystem sizes and mdadm to configure the partition sizes. Or could I perhaps get over this even easier by using GPartED (in case it supports my RAID)? Has anyone here done similar resizing on software RAID1 partitions?
The motherboard currently installed on my PC has a RAID Utility (Ctrl+I) at the startup that allow creating RAID1. But I already have a system installed with CentOS 5.4. In order to protect my data, I need RAID1. Can I add another Hard Drive now and have the data mirrored and synced onto both hard drives as if it was in RAID1 right from the beginning?
Not sure on what is going on here. The server is RAID1 through hardware RAID. It was running an unusual high load so I rebooted it. Now it won't boot up. I am getting these errors after the CentOS boot screen:sda: Current [descriptor]: sense key: Medium ErrorAdd.Sense: Address mark not found for data field
end_request: I/O error, dev sda, sector 3040555357 device-mapper: raid1: A read failure occurred on a mirror device. device-mapper: raid1: All sides of mirror have failed.
I currently have 3 500GB drives, 1 is my OS drive with Ubuntu 10.04, and the other two have been setup in a software RAID1 (mirror). I would like to resize my Ubuntu partition and install FreeBSD to try it out. How can I make sure that my software RAID1 is recognized and make sure no data is lost?
and I verify that /dev/md2 and /dev/md3 exist. But if I reboot the computer, these two devices are gone. I'm sure I am overlooking a step but I can't seem to find what it is. Could someone tell me what I need to do next?
I'm trying to load CentOS 5.5 on a new server with an Intel S5500BC motherboard using RAID 1. This board has a known problem with RHEL 5.x and the driver disk supplied has a fix. Here is the download for the driver [URL] Under the ESRT2_RHEL4-5_SLES9-1--11_v.13.21.2010_README file are directions in Section 3.1.3 on how to install the RHEL5x megasr driver. This works. The last thing replaces the ACHI driver with the megasr driver (paragraph 15) by loading the megasr.13.21.0614.2010-1-rhel50-u4-all.img in a temp file and then type "./replace_achi.sh". This step doesn't work and it is the critical one as it replaces the achi with megasr in the initrd image.
I installed a distro based on CentOS 5.5 (FreePBX distro FYI). It used an automated kickstart script to create an md RAID1 array of all the hard drives connected to the machine. Well, I installed from a thumb drive, which the script in interpreted as a hard drive and thus included in the array. So, I ended up with three md arrays (boot, swap, data) that included the thumb drive. Even better, it used the thumb drive for grub boot so I couldn't start up without it. I was able to mark the USB drive as 'failed' and remove from each array, and even change grub around to boot without the usb drive, but now each of the arrays is marked as degraded:
I've got a mailserver set up in a raid1 array.I shut down the system to install a CD-ROM drive but forgot to change the master/slave settings (I know, don'tt say anything) and didn't realize it before Centos started booting up, so it booted the hdc drive from the array.I rebuilt the array using mdadm without any apparant issues but on subsequent bootup, I get the following error :
There doesn't seem to be any side effects to this but since that didn't happen prior, I figure there's probably something I didn't do properly since I'm fairly new to the linux world.My raid array was originally set up by the Centos instal software and is set up like this :
hda1 + hdc1 = md0 (boot) Hda3 + hdc3 = md2 (/)
The other partitions are of the same size on each drive and are swap partitions.
PS : The drive is SMART capable and no errors appear during a self-test.
edit : Clonezilla also fails to boot properly although I don't know if its due to a software raid array in the first place or the errors in the filesystem. When only one drive was detected because of the jumpers, it booted properly.
I have installed a 2TB drive in my dual PIII 866 with 750MB ram. The drive is properly installed and I have configured the drive with 1 partition in RAID1. The array loads fine, but when I add the entry to mount the /dev/md2 /data/repository the following error occurs The filesystem size according to the superblock is 488378000 blocks The physical size of the device is 488377986 blocks Either the superblock or partition table is likely corrupt I have run fsck manually with no errors reported. I have removed the partition and rebuilt the array. The array assembles properly and I can manually mount the /dev/md2, but as soon as I add the entry to the fstab I get dropped to a shell after a reboot. Not sure where to go now?
I have 2 WD20EARS hard drives on the way (2 TB green WD disks with 4k sectors) and I'll be installing Centos 5.5 in RAID1 on them (2 partitions, one 16 GB / at the beginning and the rest in its own partition). I read the following thread: [URL]
and it seems that I might be having problems with the 4k sectors (Advanced Drive Format in WD lingo). I'm confused as to what exactly to do. I was thinking of downloading Fedora 14 Live CD and partitioning there and then switching to Centos 5.5 to install. Will that work? Seems I want the md 0.9 metadata because it doesn't have the space limit for me (2 TB) and it's stored at the end of the partition so it avoids alignment issues. Will I be able to make that happen with Fedora 14?
I've faced the problem with server freeze on heavy write.
CentOS 5.5 x64_86 with latest updates and kernel (2.6.18-194.32.1). Also tried 2.6.18-194.26.1 and 2.6.37-2 from ELRepo with the same results. CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 920 @ 2.67GHz Memory: 3 x 2Gb DDR3. HDDs: 2 x Western Digital WDC WD1002FBYS-02A6B0
Yesterday I installed a new server with a large partition for my XEN images. This partition is a about 930GB. The installation tooks ages and after he finished I was finding out why that is. The SoftRAID1 I configured is rebuilding the large partition.
We have had a hardisk crash in our RAID1 webhosting server running CentOS5 and Plesk. We first realized something was wrong when our main site didn't load but showed MySQL errors. We then found out that the system was in read-only state. Something that also happened the day before yesterday, but we could fix with a FSCK. Then the system worked well til around 18 hours later when it crashed with the same sympoms. So, we rebooted the server and wanted to do a filesystem check again. But the HDD wouldnt even load. It was gone. Unfortunatelly it was not realized that the second disk in the system was also not working any more for some time now. Fortunatelly we had our main site backed up externally though. So we could re-install a fresh box and mounted the two drives to the system. We checked the harddisk. One is practically empty (the older one), the other has almost only files in 'lost + found' but these are all "numbered", no real filenames or so.
I'm trying to create new RAM image file to get my server load raid1 module upon start, I was following redhat documentation & it suggested to use the following command mkinited --with=raid1 inited-raid1-$(uname -r).img $(uname -r) However after running this command I'm getting this message No Kernel available for 'inited-2.6.18-128.el5"
I need to put a pc together for home use to act as my server. I need recommendations for a asus motherboard. I need it to support 5.3 and looking at asus website I cannot for the life of me figure out what I need. I also want to use a amd cpu. It has been years since I built my own pc and never for linux
My problem is for the driver of controller ethernet jmicron jmc250. My version of Centos is 5.2, included in PBX In a Flash. I Have the original driver but these don't work and nic is not recognized. I downloaded the version of centos 5.4, but the nic is realy recognized but if tape ifconfig eth0 the message is device not found. The hardware is ok, infact this hardware work regularly in wondows for example.
