what im trying to do is build a new file system on a fiber channel RAID i have...
there are 3 partitions all 20g in size...

i know in solaris that i would have to adjust the sd.conf file to enable for multiple lun support and then use the command:

newfs /dev/rdsk/(TARGET)
and then i would type "FORMAT" to see the list of disks.

so to sum it all up here...i need to know the command line to build a newfs and then the command that will enable me to see the list of the disks..and is there a file i need to adjust to enable for multiple lun support??

im using a older version of linux....7.1 and using a qlogic fiber channel card...and since im mentioning the card....is there a pkgadd command as well on linux (to load the driver?)

THANKS EVERYONE!!

Do you want to create 1 partition of 60gb or some other configuration?

If you want so, you would need to use linux software RAID (or some distro's have lvm)...

What file system do you want (ext2, ext3, reiserfs, jfs, xfs).

What 7.1 linux distro are you using (redhat, mandrake, suse)?

What is the make and model of the card you have?
