|drbair_laptop||donkdonk: is it a sata HD?|
|drbair_laptop||use -d ata in there too|
|donkdonk||drbair_laptop: cool thanks|
does this mean anything: Error 1 occurred at disk power-on lifetime: 5173 hours
still a newb sorry
thats the only "problem" i am seeing
|drbair_laptop||probably not deathly|
what was the error type?
|donkdonk||drbair_laptop: i am not seeing an error type. other than the "Error 1"|
alleycat: nothing in /var/log/messages
|drbair_laptop||you might want to run memtest on the system|
|donkdonk||cool i will thanks alot|
|drbair_laptop||if you're getting all those zombies... I didn't see the origonal problem|
|boudiccas||memtest works best when run overnight|
|donkdonk||boudiccas: you are correct|
|drbair_laptop||yes, the writers say 8 complete runs to be reasonably certain|
|donkdonk||i hate to take a production box down that long tho|
boss says, "find the problem"
thanks for all the help
|sox_||_r2bit the error referred to sdb1, is because I've tried to mount sdb1 on /media/NO_NAME|
but we have raid software..
Any other suggestion to fix the problem?
|drbair_laptop||what was the issue?|
|sox_||CentOS doesn't mount my USB HDD|
|Lalufu||Given the error messages you posted above (USB bus resets) your hard disk does not like your usb controller. Or the other way around.|
There is a heap of things that can go wrong there, and it is not easy to determine what.
Have you tried just using a different cable? That may help. Or not.
|malte`||sox_ said he has a sw RAID|
so he has both sda and sdb
the two hard drives
|sox_||Our IMB server had one USB|
|malte`||i see in the dmesg that the kernel tries to assign sdb to the usb drive|
and then, trying to mount sdb1, founds an ext3 instead of a vfat partition and exits
is it possible to explicitly specify what sd* to assign to the usb hd?
could be an udev rule
no... that's not the problem
|Lalufu||Yes, it is possible to assign a fixed device name to a device using udev.|
However, it does not even get that far because the bus is reset before assigning a device name.
