    External SCSI Storage and / or Clustering


    Guys;

    I need some help. Basically i have a Dell PowerVault 200s. I have a problem, which sounds easy to you guys, but it's rather difficult for me.

    I have issue a few commands at the bash :
    #fdisk -l
    #cat /etc/proc/proc

    and lots of commands. however, i cant see the external storage (Dell PowerVault 220s).

    From startx (gui) when i try to view the hardware browser, i can see /dev/sg2.

    I have try to use the #sg, #mount and whatever command.. but it is worthless. Mind to help me ?

    For the clustering part, i have compile the source and install the cluster package. Problem (currently ) i'm facing is how to get / detect the harddisk and making it as raw device.

    I have tried to edit the /etc/fstab but error occours. Please guide me.

    Thanks in advance.

    John

    is it really /dev/sg2 ?

    I would expect /dev/sda for the device /dev/sda1 for the first partition
    /dev/sdb for the second etc,

    I believe raw is just the partition without a filesystem

    fdisk /dev/sda

    p to print the table, t to set the type select partition number etc
    I dont know I assume you'd set type zero to use it as raw, (probably doesnt matter as it's just a label I think)....
