Server :: SCSI/Fiber Devices Naming?

May 12, 2010

Need help on how the scsi and multipathing works in Linux. From the docs i have read, i understand that by the use of multipathing we can assign multiple paths to a SAN partition. If there is a problem then one path will failover to other path.However, i am not clear on how linux recognizes the SAN partitions using the multipath drivers. For e.g. I have a HP Proliant server on which we have the following mounts:

Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/cciss/c0d0p3 59G 11G 46G 20% /
/dev/cciss/c0d0p1 494M 27M 443M 6% /boot

Networking :: Fedora 15 Naming Network Devices

Jun 23, 2011

I'm doing a few tests with fedora 15. I'm surprised because they changed the naming way on network devices. eth0 is now called em1.At every fedora I have found the configuration files in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts, but today I can't find them.

Jan 1, 2011

I am testing PCLinux 2009.1 prior to installing. My desktop currently runs on ME and has been out of use for some time. It still works however and I can still get online. I'm currently using a laptop running XP. I would like to make use of my old desktop and tried to test PCLinux 2009.1 today. I followed the instructions obtained online and booted from the Linux cd.

Server :: Mount Fiber Attached Volume Read/write On Windows And Readonly?

Sep 2, 2010

I have a Windows 2003 server with fiber attached volumes (NTFS) that I would like to mount readonly on a linux system to back it up to tape. The fiber device will allow me to present the volume R/W to one host and R/O to another, however, the R/O system doesn't see any of the changes made by the R/W server. In other words, how can I make a readonly volume refresh, scan for changes, or update without un/re-mounting it?

Is the "mount -o --bind" option what I want? From the MAN is doesn't seem right... the option "sync" seems slightly more promising but I think I'm just grasping at straws here. The best I have come up with is a cron job to unmount then mount the volume periodically.

Red Hat :: Mapping /proc/scsi/scsi Entries With Respective Device Names In /dev/ Directory

Apr 11, 2011

In my understanding, the way /proc/scsi/scsi gets populated, /proc/paritions also gets populated in the same fashion. i.e. the description for first entry of /proc/scsi/scsi can be seen in the first entry of /proc/partitions and same for rest.

So, With this assumption, in my project, I used to relate first entry of /proc/scsi/scsi with first entry of /proc/partitions to get its total size and same for all entries.

But, I observed some differences in following scenario, where

1) The first 4 entries in /proc/scsi/scsi are SAN luns attached to my system and for which the actual device names in /dev/ are sda,sdb,sdc and sdd.

2) The last 4 entries are the internal HDDs on same system. In /dev/, their respective device names are sde,sdf,sdg & sdh.

(Output attached at end of the thread)

But in /proc/partitions, the device order is different.

You can see their respective sizes in /proc/partition output as well.

So, my question is, in this particular scenario, I can't relate the first entry of /proc/scsi/scsi with first entry of /proc/partition. i.e. scsi0:00:00:00 is not /dev/sde, because it is actually /dev/sda.

It seems that my assumption is wrong in this scenario.

Is there any way or mechanism to figure out actual device name for an entry in /proc/scsi/scsi in /dev/ directory?

How can my application should relate /proc/scsi/scsi entries with their respective device names and sizes?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: How To Add More Storafe For The Server On Switch Device Naming

I am using a QLA2462 and have got FC storage attached through a brocade switch. As soon when I add more storage for this server on this switch my device naming shifts and this new storage comes in between e.g. as sdb, and the other 2 go to sdc and sdd. I looked around but I can't find a good solution for SuSe 11.2.

Server :: Defining Persistent Device Naming On A Debian Lenny?

Nov 25, 2010

I have a problem defining persistent device naming on a Debian Lenny server.I have:RAID1 controller on the server machine with two SCSI disks.external storage with RAID5. I have / mount on the first partition on the server SCSI disk and /storage mount on the external storage. I'm experiencing a problem: The system recognizes the system disk (RAID 1), as sda or sdb randomly.I want: To control the recognition, and tell the system that sda (sda1) will always be the system disk.The motivation: GRUB is configured to work with sda, and when the system disk doesn't, boot process fails, and I end up in the initramfs shell-like interface.


Booting the kernel
mount:mounting /dev on /root/dev failed: No such file or directory
mount:mounting /sys on /root/sys failed: No such file or directory

I need to mount a drive over fiber channel. It's a 4 terabyte drive. We're using a paragon driver to access other volumes on the SAN in a similar way. Works fine. I mount the other volumes as mount -t ufsd /dev/sdd1 /mnt/VolumeName Works fine. This is also an ntfs drive. The error I get when I mount: mount -t ufsd /dev/sdg1 /mnt/VolumeName01 is NTFS-fs error (device sdg1): ntfs_fill_super(): Device has unsupported hardsect_size

CentOS 5 :: Can't Get Fiber Channel Disks Working

Feb 23, 2011

Setting up a new Centos 5.5 server with an LSI Logic 7402XP fiber channel HBA card connected by fiber to an enclosure with 28 SATA drives.This is just a bunch of disks.I want to mount them /disk1, /disk2,disk28. No RAID or LVM. After connecting the dsisks and rebooting there are 28 new devices /dev/sdc, /dev/sdd, ...

/dev/sdad. Going to /sys/class/scsi_disk will list all of them. Pick any one and go into device and you can cat the vendor and model and state is "Running." But try parted /dev/sdc and it just quitts. fdisk and mkfs produce errors. Attepting to read or write the device directly with dd fails. The mpt fusion kernel mods are present. I'm pretty sure this hardware is on the suuported list. And I've tried swapping out the card and cables in case of bad hardware. What am I missing to be able to partition and mkfs these disks?

getinfo is at
[root@localhost dev]# cd /dev ; ls sd*
sda sda3 sda6 sdac sdb1 sdb4 sdc sdf sdi sdl sdo sdr sdu sdx
sda1 sda4 sdaa sdad sdb2 sdb5 sdd sdg sdj sdm sdp sds sdv sdy

I created a new disk on our scsi san. I then ran the following command: echo "- - -" > /sys/class/scsi_host/host1/scan. did that command for each host. and in dmesg, it shows it found a device /dev/sdg. but when i do a fdisk -l. It never lists /dev/sdg. I just did this other day on another server and it worked fine like that. This is RH 4.8.

Server :: SCSI I/O Error And Unstoppable Apache2 Process?

Apr 30, 2009

I currently have a massive problem with my main webserver: one of the SCSI drives where I keep my htdocs seems to have failed (sd 0:0:0:0: [sda] Result: hostbyte=DID_NO_CONNECT driverbyte=DRIVER_OK,SUGGEST_OK end_request: I/O error, dev sda, sector 7797601).

Since I have no backup (dumb!dumb!dumb!) of it, I tried to copy what I could on the fly, but that failed miserably. The next idea was to umount the volume and try remounting it R-O, but I have a bunch of apache2 processes that are apparently reading/writing on it and I can't seem to find any way of terminating them. I tried via init script, killall and kill -9 but they just don't respond. Until I can terminate those processes, I won't be able to unmount the drive and try saving what's left of the data.Oh and the cherry on top of the cake: the server is 1100 miles away so I can't even access it physically..Is there any way I didn't think of to get rid of those apache processes?

Server :: RAID5 Refuses To Start After Yanking Drive From SCSI Bus

Mar 23, 2010

I am setting up a new server and am in the midst of testing RAID. This is an Ubuntu 9.10 server. RAID1 (/dev/md1) is spread across 12 one-terabyte SCSI disks (/dev/sdi through /dev/sdt). It has four spares configured, each of which are also one-terabyte SCSI drives (/dev/sdu through /dev/sdx). I have been following the instructions on the Linux RAID Wiki ([URL]....

I have already tested the RAID successfully by using mdadm to set a drive faulty. Automatic failover to spare and reconstruction worked like a champ. I am now testing "Force fail by hardware". Specifically, I am following the advice, "Take the system down, unplug the disk, and boot it up again." Well, I did that, and the RAID fails to start. It outright refuses to start. It doesn't seem to notice that a drive is missing. Notably, all the drive letters shift up to fill in the space left by removing a drive. The test I did was to:


Is removing a disk from the bus a reasonable test in the first place? Meaning, is this likely to happen in a production environment by other means than a human coming by and yanking out the drive? Meaning, is there a hardware failure that would replicate this event? Because, if so, then I don't know how to recover from it.
