Suggestions for new hard drive partitions

Recommended Posts

It looks like it's mounted under /mnt/raidcleggett08, so do this from a console:

 

ls /mnt/raidcleggett08

 

and if you see files listed, then it's mounted, and you just need to access it from this directory.

Ian, I tried that, but still no luck.

 

I'm thinking of doing a re-install in a new partition and try to hook it up using the custom partitioning. I dont really want to loose my current 2008.1 install as its been updated, and down want to do another big download session.

Ian if I rename the array is it likely to be detected as a new device? Or is there some way to force re detection?

If you rename you might have problems but I don't know in all honesty because it's different with mdadm raid configuration to what you have. It should have been working considering how it looks set and that it's mounted.

Ian, I had a work collegue download 2009 Free DVD and I installed it, letting the installer using free space.

 

Well it detects the raid as /mnt/win_c2. Beautiful, at last.

 

I'm not sure what I was doing wrong, but it now works as intended.

Hi guys, just cleaning up my system now that its all working.

 

I have two swap partitions. Here is part of my /etc/fstab file

 

# Entry for /dev/sdc5 :

UUID=5a8732f5-8fd6-45eb-a7a3-0a68de5883e8 swap swap defaults 0 0

# Entry for /dev/sdc9 :

UUID=72473152-118e-4080-9354-a95068fa18dc swap swap defaults 0 0

 

sdc5 is 7.8Gb

sdc9 is 3.8Gb.

 

I would imagine that I can do without sdc9. Is it a matter of erasing the partition and removing that entry from the fstab file? or are they are items I need to attend to?

If you erase the partition the system will not boot at all.

Simply leave one of them at fstab, and format the other to something useful. And by the way both of them are WAY oversized.

Sorry I dont quite understand what you mean. Do you mean leave one swap entry in fstab and do something with that partition?

Is there some way that I can monitor the health of the array. Intel provides a nice interface for windows, but nothing for Linux, instead letting dmraid look after it. I can't see a way to monitor the array.
