Newbie - can't see RAID array
on Mar 4, 2011 at 10:28:26 am

Sorry that I take more from the Cow than I give, but here goes. Just for fun (home setup); I know this is old technology but I've acquired an old Caen Raptor 12 Fibre Channel Array from Ebay. Not looking for SAN or anything clever, just want to use it as attached storage.

I've put a LSI fibre channel card in my Xserve and connected both channels to the RAID. Set it to Point-Point.

I've got into the RAID via serial and have created a RAID 5 array. I've then created a single logical drive and put a single partition on it.

I'm now stuck! I can't play around with LUNs too much as I've created a logical drive not a volume and everything seems assigned to LUN 0 (which I think is OK).

What do I need to do next so that the Xserve can actually see the RAID? It can only see "SCSI target device" at both channels, not "SCSI Logical Unit".

Sorry; it's been a fun journey but I need some help now!!

OK, so I can now see SOMETHING. It has the name of my RAID but it's only 93Gb big, rather than the 4TB RAID that I've created. It also has some system files on it. I'm guessing I'm looking at the controller but how do I see the RAID beyond it?

Any clues?!

Thanks,

James
