CentOS 5 Hardware :: SATA Disc SMART Data Shows New Drive Faulty Centos5.4?

Nov 26, 2009

I have a new system using an Intel DG451D main board. I have been trying to get a RAID 1 mirror set working as the main drive in this system and for some reason, my SATA drives - three of them all new have had their SMART data changed to show the drives as failing and in need of replacement. Eventually the drive reports failure to the degree that the BIOS no longer recognises it. When loading the Centos os I was getting differing results because of this issue. I am not sure if this is a hardware issue even - I know that the drives were all very much OK and brand new - no good now! Just putting a feeler out to see if anyone has had a similar issue or to see if anyone knows of any possible known causes for this?

Failing any explanation, can anyone suggest a good desktop style Main Board that supports RAID well for Centos 5.4? I plan to sue this as a small server system so graphics etc are not important here.

Fedora :: Help Rescuing Data From Faulty Drive

Aug 8, 2009

I have an XD card with lots of pictures in it which suddenly stopped working, it gives me "card error" messages in my camera (and any other one) and it refuses to mount on my laptop's card reader (which does work in F11 for XD cards, I've tried other ones).So I'm trying to use some program to make an image of what's in the card, like ddrescue or dd_rhelp. But they all need me to mount the disk, which I just can't. I have tried to mount it manually, but I'm not even sure what device I should point to.

So my question is, how can I mount a faulty drive in such a way that any of these programs can make an image? Or maybe there is a smarter way to try to get my pictures back? (There are some non-free programs in Windows which may seemingly help, but I'd like to figure out how to do this in Linux).

Ubuntu Servers :: Windows XP Disc Wouldn't Find Sata Hard Drive

Apr 10, 2011

I'm trying to get my work's infrastructure built at home before I go up there and show the boss. It is as follows: VMware esxi installed on the server with:

Windows server 2008
Ubuntu 10.04 server

I've got VMware installed. And I have spent the past 7 hours trying to figure out how to manage it. I found out that vsphere has not nor will ever be supported for Linux; which was my first problem.

Second Problem So I had to dig around for a spare Windows 7 dvd. To my UN-surprise it blue screened before it even got to the Windows installer.

Third Problem So I dug around for my Windows XP disc. Wouldn't find my sata hard drive and I wasn't about to dig around for a floppy drive and disk, in order to install it.

Fourth Problem I remembered that I had a dual boot of Windows 7 downstairs and proceeded to download and install vsphere. It wouldn't install because of some updates that needed to be installed. I installed them and got vsphere installed as well. However upon connecting to my vmware esxi, there was yet another error that had to do with some update. I found out that the error had been existent since 2009 and for some reason NO ONE at VMware has fixed it....

Hardware :: 3 SATA HDs Installed - Drive 2 Shows No Partitions In F12

May 2, 2010

I have three sata drives installed in my machine. 1 is my boot drive, contains a windows install, and a linux install. All is well here. Drives 2 and 3 are simple fat32 volumes, I store my data on drive 2, and periodically sync it to drive 3. I do this simply for backup reasons. It was only recently that I setup this scheme. Previously I had all 3 drives in a fakeraid setup. Raid 5. I broke the array to set things up as I've described. All is well in windows, all 3 drives work as expected. However, in linux (fedora 12), drive 2 shows no partitions! If I do an fdisk -l, it shows sdb1, but if I attempt to mount it, I'm told that /dev/sdb1 does not exist, and in fact, /dev/sdb1 does NOT exist. sdc1 however, does exist, and is mountable.

A few things I've noticed with seem relevant.
Gnome reports a raid5 drive, which if I try to interact with it, fails.
Gparted shows sdb as a standard drive.
Dmesg shows the following, I've grepped out sdb and sdc for comparison, as they should be identical.

[root@azure ~]# dmesg | egrep 'sdb|sdc'
sd 2:0:0:0: [sdb] 1250263728 512-byte logical blocks: (640 GB/596 GiB)
sd 2:0:0:0: [sdb] Write Protect is off
sd 2:0:0:0: [sdb] Mode Sense: 00 3a 00 00
sd 2:0:0:0: [sdb] Write cache: enabled, read cache: enabled, doesn't support DPO or FUA ....

Seems to me that the lines:
raid5: device sdb operational as raid disk 1
disk 1, o:1, dev:sdb
have something to do with it.

I did play around with mdraid while my array was apart, but I cant seem to find any method of testing sdb to see if something is somehow still configured on that drive. I've re-written the partition table, and even performed a low-level format on the drive, nothing seems to restore its function in linux.

Ubuntu Installation :: Multi-Booting - CD Drive - Also SATA - No Longer Shows Up

Apr 16, 2010

I decided to install the Ubuntu Netbook remix (9.10, I believe) on this extra IDE hard drive I had (my other three hard drives are SATA.) My primary hard drive contains a Windows XP, my second contains Windows 7, and my third SATA drive is just NTFS-formatted storage. I went through the installer and choose to format and install on my 40GB IDE hard drive, which it did. Then it finished and rebooted. It apparently decided to install the GRUB bootloader onto the primary hard drive (not the one it was installed on,) which was not my intention. The bootloader froze the boot of my computer and wouldn't work. (Stuck at loading GRUB.) I couldn't even get to the BIOS. So I pulled the plug on the primary hard drive and tried to boot again. I could get into Windows 7 just fine, but that was it. The problem, though, is that the CD drive (also SATA) no longer shows up in My Computer. Also, after changing the boot order and replugging in the former primary hard drive, it wouldn't show up, either. Nor would the IDE one (though I'm pretty sure that's because Windows doesn't understand the EXT (or whatever Ubuntu uses) file system.

Does anyone know why this occurred and how to get those drives to show up in Windows again? I don't really care to get the netbook remix working here, since this isn't even a laptop, it was just an experiment. Also, I'd love to know how to remove GRUB from my primary hard disk so that I can boot from it again.

Server :: RAID With RHEL5-AS 64bit On HP DL320 G6 (Smart Array B110i SATA)

Aug 4, 2010

Trying to install RHEL5-AS 64bit onto HP DL320 G6, with RAID being a mirrored array on the Smart Array B110i SATA controller. The RAID is configured in the BIOS and seems fine.

When I install RedHat, I have to use 'linux dd' to use the HP provided driver (http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport...5&mode=4&idx=0) and that works fine during the installer, the GUI during the install sees the RAID just fine, it sees one volume, calling it the HP Volume. However, when the system boots after the install, the RAID is gone, and it's now seeing two drives, /sda and /sdb:

Ubuntu :: Rescue Data After Faulty Partitioning?

Dec 2, 2010

I just managed to the one thing I wasn't supposed to do. I managed to mix up my drives and install Ubuntu on the wrong drive. I realized it seconds after starting the partitioning step but too late. It never started copying data but the new partitions are there. Is there any way of getting my data back. It's many photos aso that I don't have a backup of.

I don't want to "fsck" things up even more so I figured I'd ask if anyone has managed to recover from this.

CentOS 5 :: Chainloading 2nd Sata Drive Partition 5?

Mar 5, 2011

I am still fighting with getting the right configuration in my grub file to chainload the second linux OS on my computer.

2 hard drives (sata)
2 OS's (CentOS,Ubuntu)

CentOS is in and running fine. It owns the MBR and was in place before I added the Ubuntu OS. Ubuntu was added to the free space of the second hard drive in partition 5 and its grub was installed there. So I thought this would work for a grub stanza.

title Ubuntu (10.10)
root (hd1,4)
chainloader +1

CentOS 5 :: Is The Separation Of OS Drive And Data Drive Recommended

Jan 13, 2010

- 160gb is where i install CentOS (pretty much the hard drive for operation system) - Lets call this drive A

- Two 1TB drives run in RAID 1, using software RAID (this is where i will store personal data, pictures, movies, music, etc...) - Lets call this RAID 1 setup drive B

I am planning to run a virtual Win Server 2008 using Xen and have that be my domain controller. I will use samba to share drive B and have the network drive map when user login to the domain.

- If for some reasons i have to reinstall CentOS, this pretty much mean drive A will be formatted and reinstalled. Knowing my self i probably will goof up some config in CentOS and will need to reinstall the OS to fix it. Since drive B will be the centralize location for my home network, i dont want to lose the data. Will i be able to re-setup the RAID setup of drive B and still have all the data stored on it intact after a reinstall?

- Is the separation of OS drive and data drive recommended?

- Are there any better way to accomplish my setup? I am pretty much just looking to make a linux file server and windows on client's end.

I even tried with an older ubuntu disc (8 point something) that had worked on another computer, but this didn't work either. I know the computer can boot from the CD drive, as it works with my OS X 10.4 DVD.

I have also setup Sendmail to forward all mail (really only Nagios notifications) out to my Exchange server using define('SMART_HOST', 'exchange.domain') in the sendmail configuration file and it seems to be working correctly.is there a way to configure Sendmail to forward all mail out through my Exchange server as it is now but send mail out to the internet itself if the exchange server is unavailable, somewhat like a failover configuration.

General :: Data Recovery From External NTFS Disc?

Mar 19, 2011

I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 and am trying to use it to recover data from a failed External HDD (NTFS).

The drive failed with an accompanying smell of electric burning and subsequently was not recognised by Windows. It would recognice the enclosure, but told me that the drive had to be reformatted.

I removed the drive from the external enclosure and hooked it up to my PC with a power cable and USB to SATA connector. I can mount the drive in Ubuntu (eventually) and I've learned enough about BASH to navigate through the files on the drive.

Those that I can access I am able to copy across to my internal drive (VERY slowly, but it does do it) but a lot of the directories show up with an Input/output Error when I run the ls -l command.

Is there any way for me to be able to access these files or to recover them? Should I be trying a different technique rather than just attempting to access and copy the files?

Ubuntu :: Restore Data From Sata Hd Partition

Sep 4, 2010

Ive installed ubuntu for the first time today, i have a hdd of 500gb, that had 65gb occupied with music, movies and games.

What i did during installation:

it asked me where to install it, so i created a new partition of 100gb ext4 type, to install it there, and i was going to leave the rest for the data, but it wont let me do it, so i went back and selected the "exchange type swap linux 0x82 type" for the 400gb partition.

Then installed it, and now i cant find my data, and i have only 100gb of space in the hd, if i use the "disc utility" i can see the other 400gb, and change partition type, but i dont want to lose my data..
