    Hi,

    I got two linux servers, one comprise the following HDD configuration:
    # fdisk /dev/sdbfdisk -l /dev/sda /dev/sdb

    Disk /dev/sda: 1073 MB, 1073741824 bytes
    34 heads, 61 sectors/track, 1011 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 2074 * 512 = 1061888 bytes

    Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
    /dev/sda1 1 242 250923+ 83 Linux
    /dev/sda2 243 484 250954 83 Linux
    /dev/sda3 485 726 250954 83 Linux
    /dev/sda4 727 1011 295545 83 Linux

    Disk /dev/sdb: 1073.7 GB, 1073741824000 bytes
    255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 130541 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

    Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
    /dev/sdb1 1 130541 1048570551 83 Linux

    In the second linux machine, I can't see sdb/sda are present in the system, because running command "fdisk -l /dev/sda /dev/sdb" returns nothing.

    Can anyone please tell me how to make sda/sdb available in the second system?

    Your suggestion is highly appreciated.
    Thanks

    execute 'fdisk -l' only and post output here.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    I just know the sda/sdb devices are those TB disc in the SAN shared storage.
    How can I further configure a linux system recognize a shared SAN disc like this?

    Thanks
