Hi There, I have some problems with freebsd 5.1 and 2 promise raid controllers. I have been searching the net but not found any usefull information.
promise TX2000 with 4 60Gig disks (old) (raid0) promise TX2000 with 4 120Gig disks (new) (raid0) After installing the 2nd promise raid controller, I still only get 1 post bios picture, but if I enter I can configure the harddisks on both controllers. I have configured the disks in 2 raids (raid0). But after I boot when I look in /dev/ all I find is ar0 there is no ar1 (which used to be there when I had a promise and highpoint controller in the machine). I mounted the old raid which as always was named ar0s1c (240Gig). Then I used fdisk to check the settings on ar0 which showed 480 gig avaliable (the amount on the new raid controller), but did not show any used space on ar0. This is what trickered my alarm, it seems that I can't find the old raid slice when I use fdisk, so if I setup the unused space what would happend to the old raid (which contains data) on ar0? I can see all the harddisks in /stand/sysinstall under fdisk and in my dmesg. How can I configure my 2nd raid without losing any data on the first one? Should I see an ar1 device or is freebsd seeing both controllers as one? Below is some snippets from my dmesg: atapci1: <Promise PDC20271 UDMA133 controller> port 0xac00-0xac0f,0xa800-0xa803,0xa400-0xa407,0xa000-0xa003,0x9c00-0x9c07 mem 0xd7000000-0xd700ffff irq 11 at device 8.0 on pci0 ata2: at 0x9c00 on atapci1 ata3: at 0xa400 on atapci1 -snip- atapci2: <Promise PDC20271 UDMA133 controller> port 0xc000-0xc00f,0xbc00-0xbc03,0xb800-0xb807,0xb400-0xb403,0xb000-0xb007 mem 0xd7010000-0xd701ffff irq 11 at device 11.0 on pci0 ata4: at 0xb000 on atapci2 ata5: at 0xb800 on atapci2 -snip- ad0: 38166MB <ST340014A> [77545/16/63] at ata0-master UDMA66 ad4: 117246MB <Maxtor 6Y120L0> [238216/16/63] at ata2-master UDMA133 ad5: 117246MB <Maxtor 6Y120L0> [238216/16/63] at ata2-slave UDMA133 ad6: 117246MB <Maxtor 6Y120L0> [238216/16/63] at ata3-master UDMA133 ad7: 117246MB <Maxtor 6Y120L0> [238216/16/63] at ata3-slave UDMA133 ad8: 58644MB <IBM-DTLA-307060> [119150/16/63] at ata4-master UDMA100 ad9: 58644MB <IBM-DTLA-307060> [119150/16/63] at ata4-slave UDMA100 ad10: 58644MB <IBM-DTLA-307060> [119150/16/63] at ata5-master UDMA100 ad11: 58644MB <IBM-DTLA-307060> [119150/16/63] at ata5-slave UDMA100 ar0: 468987MB <ATA RAID0 array> [59787/255/63] status: READY subdisks: disk0 READY on ad8 at ata4-master disk1 READY on ad10 at ata5-master disk2 READY on ad9 at ata4-slave disk3 READY on ad11 at ata5-slave Opened disk ad4 -> 1 Opened disk ad4 -> 1 Opened disk ad5 -> 1 Opened disk ad5 -> 1 Opened disk ad6 -> 1 Opened disk ad6 -> 1 Opened disk ad7 -> 1 Opened disk ad7 -> 1 Opened disk ad8 -> 1 Opened disk ad8 -> 1 Opened disk ad9 -> 1 Opened disk ad9 -> 1 Opened disk ad10 -> 1 Opened disk ad10 -> 1 Opened disk ad11 -> 1 Opened disk ad11 -> 1 -- Regards, Frank Skovboel _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
