    Disks no longer recognised

    I've inherited a Viglen HX420T^2i server which is around 5 years old, and which is made up of 4 individual blades/nodes in a single 2U chassis. Each node is connected to 2 harddisks, but one of them has recently stopped seeing both of its disks, i.e. the boot up sequence states that no disks are present. I'm no hardware expert, but this sounds too much of a coincidence for both disks to have died simultaneously. I'd be grateful for any hints as to what could be the real issue, and what would be involved in fixing it.

    Can you try with Linux LiveCD and run the command

    or run

    fdisk -l
    Can you find any harddrive ? If so, try to mount these drives via mount command

    For example:

    mount -t <filesystem-name> <device-name> /mnt
    If your file system is ext3, and device name is /dev/sda4 the command will look like :

    mount -t ext3 /dev/sda4 /mnt
