RE: Array Expansion on Compaq DL360 (G1)

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

on DL360G1 you have a Smart Array integrated on the system board, so you must reconfigure your RAID partition.
You must configure a new RAID 1 partition of 36 GB.
After this you should see the new space.

Hope this can help you.

I had 2 9gig drives in this one. I have replaced them with 36gig drives.
That worked fine.

Now I want to use the extra space, but can't seem to understand how. In
windows I can just go into disk manager and see the extra space and
allocate it. But under Redhat 9, even if I reboot, it still says the disk
is only 9 gig..

****** from dmesg

/dev/ida/c0d0p3          1920      2176   1048560   82  Linux swap

How do I get hold of the extra space?

Compaq have some Array Configuration Utility, but only for RH8 and I
could not get that to work properly. Because it depended on some modules
that were compiled for RH8-kernel.

Any hints would be appreciated :)
