My Support Questions…


I made this page to track my comments and suggestions to the WordPress Forums. It probably won’t get very large, since I am pretty simple in my requests and very satisfied with WordPress overall.

  1. I have a 250gb sata disk I pulled from a linksys nas 200 it is supposed to be an xfs / linux raid autodetect formated partition.

    It shows up in fdisk -l as dev/sda and i can see the partitions (id fd)

    I am able to assemble the raid and start it but not mount it!

    I have found tons of articles about how to mount ext3 / lvm partitons but not xfs!

    None of the commands for finding the volume group work and i am out of my depth with xfs

    Please help.

    • Paul: Mounting XFS should be as easy as mount -t xfs /dev/vg-name/lv-name /destination-directory.
      If you only have one drive, depending on the RAID level it came from, I do not know that all of the PV-VG-LV info will be available for LVM to work with.
      Can you get the other drives and try to get the entire RAID volume up? If the RAID had LVM over RAID (maybe it was just RAID formatted with XFS?), eventually you should be able to get the right drive order to bring the whole thing online, and then the pvscan, vgscan, and lvscan tools should work.

      If there was no LVM to being with, should be easier. Then it is just a matter of mount -t xfs /dev/md# /dest-dir, once you have the RAID set going. But doing it with only one drive of the set, unless it was part of a mirror, will be a challenge I think. Good luck!

  2. Thankyou so much!!!

    It was part of a mirror so ‘mount -t xfs /dev/md# /dest-dir’ did the trick.

    I wish I found this site earlier, i had been scouring the net for hours searching for the answer.

    Thankyou so much once again.

    Kind Regards

  3. Have you tried getting DBsign to work under Wine? DBsign is the Windows-only component that allows the Defense Travel System to work with a CAC.
