Have my RMA... Now what??
I have a raidz2 pool with one disk that seems to be going bad, several errors are noted in iostat. I have an RMA for the drive, however - no I am wondering how I proceed. I need to send the drive in and then they will send me one back. If I had the drive on hand, I could do a zpool replace. Do I do a zpool offline? zpool detach? Once I get the drive back and put it in the same drive bay..

Problem copying files to flash drive
I had an interesting experience this weekend backing up some flash drives to another flash drive on my CentOS 5.2 home desktop. My son had two 256MB flash drives and one 1GB flash drive that he wanted backed up onto his newer 2GB flash drive. I used rsync to copy the two smaller ones to the big one without any trouble, but when I tried to backup the 1GB files to the 2GB drive, I started getting

OT: Dell BIOS and mixed drives
I have a Dell Precision 360, which has both onboard SATA and ultra ATA controllers, and I put one of each kind of drive into the bays to make an experimental machine with the xen kernel. After enabling both of drives, the BIOS recognizes each drive, but it fails to boot, giving me the message "secondary drive 1 not found". The BIOS gives me a choice of going ahead or going to setup.

[OT] How to recover data from an IDE drive
Hello, As some may recall, I suffered a hardware failure of a 10 yr old IBM Netvista back in January. I was backing up my personal data, 'My Documents', to my CentOS server but I apparently didn't get my emails. It was a main board failure and I believe the data is still good on the hard drive. Only problem, its an IDE drive and my server and new PC have SATA drives. Is it possible

trying to find out how much is on a drive?
I have a Ferdora 2 machine with 2 drives in it one has the OS and the main drive for our Samba server on it and the other is the Mirror drive.

Best 1.5TB drives for consumer RAID?
Which consumer-priced 1.5TB drives do people currently recommend? I had zero read/write/checksum errors so far in 2 years with my trusty old Western Digital WD7500AAKS drives, but now I want to upgrade to a new set of drives that are big, reliable and cheap. As of Jan 2010 it seems the price sweet spot is the 1.5TB drives. As I had a lot of success with Western Digital drives I thought

Dell machine boots a Windows formatted FAT16 USB drive not a Ubuntu formatted FAT16 drive.
Hi All, First post and hopefully someone can steer me in the right direction for this problem. I did a bit of googling and found some hints but nothing concrete. We are using Syslinux and a FAT32 USB thumb drive (single partition) to boot a customized Debian OS which works very well with newer motherboards. However we have a few older Dell machines that simply hangs when trying to boot

"Enterprise Class Hard Drive" - Scam Warning
Hi All, I know many of us here manage RAID on our Centos based servers so this may be of interest to us all. I ordered three new "Enterprise hard drives" this month from a well known UK online retailer. The drives arrived as new in their anti-static packaging. Before using one of the drives in a mission critical hardware raid I checked the SMART attributes and was amazed at what I

Trouble mounting a second drive
I am tying to mount a second hard drive to my server with CentOS installed on the primary hard drive. I need to get some data off of the drive. It also has Linux installed on it. It was the primary hard drive on the system it was installed on. When I set it up as the second disk it will not boot the drive because it has /boot partition on it. So it conflicts with the /boot partition on the

Question on failing hard drives
In my Cent OS machine, I have 3 hard drives, an 80, and two 200gig hard drives. One of the drives is obviously starting to fail, but I'm not sure which one. Is there a command line command in Linux that will check the drive integrity on all the hard drives and tell me which one is going bad? Thanks Jim

Win32 syslinux needs to support mount points, disk numbers or volume names in addition to drive letters
As you know, the Linux version of syslinux supports mount points. But for the Win32 version, it only supports drive letters as in: syslinux ?ma e: However, drive letters are not always available, such as drives mounted to NTFS folders. In order to install syslinux to these drives, future release of syslinux should support using mount points as the drive spec; or alternatively, support disk
