Jason, if IIRC, the dells internal disks show up as /dev/sd* devices. Do you
have a shared storage device? If /dev/sdb1 is not a shared device, then I
you might need to take a step back and get a hold of a SAN of some type. If
are just playing around, there are ways to get some firewire drives to accept
two hosts and act like a cheap shared devices. There are docs on the Oracle
site documenting the process of setting up the drive and the kernel. Note,
you'll only be able to use two nodes using the firewire idea.
Also, you should specify a partition for the command below. That partition
be very small. Something on the order of 10MB sounds right. Even that is
way too big. Then use the rest for GFS storage pools.

Subject: [Linux-cluster] question about creating partitions and gfs
so still following instructions at
im at the part that says
"# ccs_tool create /root/cluster /dev/iscsi/bus0/target0/lun0/part1"
in my config, I have the dell PERC 4/DC cards, and I believe the logical
drive showed up as /dev/sdb
so do I need to create a partition on this logical drive with fdisk first
before I run
ccs_tool create /root/cluster /dev/sdb1
or am I totally off track here?
i did ccs_tool create /root/cluster /dev/sdb and it seemed to work fine, but
doesnt seem right..
