I can't seem to get the manual fdisk partition thing down. Got a new HP
DL360 with a direct attached HP MSA 30. The DL360 has a RAID card that
limits the file size to 2TB. The MSA 30 has 14 300GB scsi drives. I have
configured the RAID controller to have 2 logical drives both with 1.5TB
logical drives. Installed RHEL and it will not let me create the
partitions the size I want at install time. This is what I need, I have
the OS on the RAID1 logical drive on the DL360. The problem comes when I
try to fdisk the other direct attached storage. First, how do I know what
to fdisk? I know I need to start with /dev/cciss/?? but there are 2052
possibilites after that. I would assume after I find what device I want to
fdisk, i would run fdisk /dev/cciss/$drive, then n for the new partition.
after that I would assume to mkfs.ext3 and after that create a lable and
add it to fstab. Any help would be appreciated, email or web link.
