View Full Version : Promise Raid SX150
28th May 2005, 05:32 AM
I am using Fedora 4. It finds the raid card but sees all disks separate. I have set the disks up in the raid bios as raid 5. Does any one know a way too have Fedora see them as one disk like Windows does, allowing you too add a new hard drive and rebuild it.

(1) Do you mean Fedora Core 4 Test 3, as FC4 final will be a week before it's released?
(2) Many onboard RAID controllers aren't true hardware RAID. When this is the case, Linux sees the drives as individual IDE, SATA or SCSI drives. So to get RAID with this type of controller on Linux, you'll have to use Linux software RAID. I have 4 160GB SATA drives that are setup this way as RAID5 and the performance is quite good and in many cases better than hardware RAID for much less money.

One question when you set up your software raid did you have the hardware raid 5 as well?
My controller has them already raid 5 I tried too software raid them as well, but it would fail.
