Re: Problem mounting Promise Fasttrak66

This is what I understand, correct me if I am wrong. You have a running
linux machine with two additional disks hde and hdg. These additional
disks have non-Linux data (windows OS). hde and hdg are of each 20G.

Your disks hde and hdg are properly connected. Your fdisk reports 40G for

In your FastTrack BIOS (Cntrl+F) at boot time, it is possible that you
spanned the two disks hde and hdg together. If so, try mirror or stripe
instead of span in the FastTrack BIOS.

Good luck


I believe you understand everything correctly. The BIOS is already set to stripe and I can see that in the Fastcheck utility in windows also.

When I run fdisk it doesn't list anything for /dev/ataraid/d0, even after I've inserted the modules and mounted /dev/ataraid/d0p1. I find that odd.

I also want to mention that I was able to mount the array and read the data just fine using Redhat 7.1 and the ft.o module from Promise. However, I needed to upgrade my kernel for other hardware support and really wanted to get away from having to wait on Promise to release new drivers.
