Here is the SCSI adapter output:

Not yes. It is planned for next reboot (touch /forcefsck), which will

Then, I am just more confused. This 08:11 pair does match anything...

olan:~# cat /proc/partitions
major minor  #blocks  name

   8     0    8886762 sda
   8     1     195568 sda1

Thanks for your reply.
