Thanx for that. Strange thing now.
I tried looking at it with fdisk as suggested, though xvdi is no longer there? Can't figure out why, anyway, when I go to attach/detach block devices I now see: md126p5 md126 They are both also accessible via fdisk but what is bugging me is that I have these two disks setup via hardware RAID? shouldn't they show up as one disk? Since I don't have any data on these disks I tried partitioning one so now I have this when I print the part table: Disk /dev/md126: 1.8 TiB, 2000381018112 bytes, 3906994176 sectors Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes Disklabel type: dos Disk identifier: 0x89e5c39e Device Boot Start End Sectors Size Id Type /dev/md126p1 16065 3907024064 3907008000 1.8T f W95 Ext'd (LBA) /dev/md126p5 16128 3907024064 3907007937 1.8T 83 Linux I appologise as this is perhaps getting into non-qubes territory but help would be apprecaited (as the uplimate goal is making this RAID1 setup available to some of my larger appVMs and local backups). Thanks in advance (again!)
