Post by zander » 10 Jan 2013, 19:15

Maybe the raid-maker script doesnot like it that you have data on that second disk. If so, you can try removing all partitions from that disk. In windows , right click on my computer, select 'manage' and then disk management. On linux, go to the ssh shell, run "fdisk /dev/sdb" , press "h" for help, and follow instructions on deleting partitions.

It is possible to manually create the raid partition, but you need to do a little hacking from the ssh shell

hi,

i ran

Code: Select all

root@blacksun:/# blkid -c /dev/null
/dev/sda1: LABEL="Bubba root" UUID="043d3ef2-de20-4a39-9710-5c1cd83b6dd3" TYPE="ext3" 
/dev/sda2: UUID="wH4ytO-T0rk-Tzps-2fW7-0Yoo-gEyv-osvaWI" TYPE="LVM2_member" 
/dev/sda3: TYPE="swap" 
/dev/mapper/bubba-storage: LABEL="Bubba home" UUID="18d4e828-b650-4437-b12e-47e544fa682a" TYPE="ext3" 
root@blacksun:/#
looks like there is only the root partition, user partition and the swap partition.

it seems the external drive may not even be mounted. is /dev/sda2 the external disk or user space on the primary bubba disk?

i want to be sure before i start doing stuff.

can someone verify this please?

thank you.
