Hello all,

Just received our first linux server and have spent most of the day pootling around. Everything seems fine, ive set up apache and a few other things we needed, but i cant find my backup drive.

Configuration is:

3xSCSI drives with PERC Raid controller

drive 0 + 1 - RAID 1 (so im guessing this is my / directory)

drive 2 - RAID 0 (as my raid setup utility would only let me pick this)

Now i know that drives 0+1 are working in RAID fine as both hdd activity lights flash simultaneously. But cant get anywhere trying to find drive 2.

Ive looked in /dev and i have a long long (long...) list of devices, none of which open (just pops up the "please select something to open this with" box). Im guessing the drive would be /dev/hdb or /hdc

here is a rough list of a "dir" on my /dev directory.

hda
hda1
hda10
hda11
hda12
hda13
hda14
hda15
hda16
hda17
hda18
hda19
hda20
hda3
hda4
hda5
hdb1
hdb11
hdb12
etc etc etc

Is this normal? i had mandrake at home and cannot recall this ever happening

Please help!

Ben

run the command dmesg that gives you a list of a lot of things, but amound them is the address of any hardware plugged into your sysem. See if you can find it in there.

That or maybe lspci -v might help.

dmesg | grep hd

Should help you out. My output is:
CODE
[root@void root]# dmesg | grep hd
   ide0: BM-DMA at 0xc400-0xc407, BIOS settings: hda:DMA, hdb:pio
   ide1: BM-DMA at 0xc408-0xc40f, BIOS settings: hdc:DMA, hdd:pio
hda: MDT MD800BB-00CAA1, ATA DISK drive
hdc: SANYO CD-ROM CRD-1332P, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive
hda: attached ide-disk driver.
hda: host protected area => 1
hda: 156301488 sectors (80026 MB) w/2048KiB Cache, CHS=9729/255/63, UDMA(100)
hda: hda1 hda2 hda3 hda4 < hda5 >

Showing that my hda is a hard disk, and that hdc is a CD-Rom drive

Good stuff. =D
