I'm running Oracle Linux and I'm trying to create raw devices from our EMC San.

I added entries to /etc/sysconfig/rawdevices after fdisking the emcpowerx luns:

/dev/raw/raw1 /dev/emcpowera1 ... etc...

I don't know why there is no /dev/raw folder or any rawx subfolders. I did see a command called 'MAKEDEV raw' which seems to create the folders but when I reboot, they disappear hence the raw device mappings I did in /sysconfig/rawdevices are not there either.

Does anyone have any hint as to what I'm missing?

thanks. chris Received on Fri Jul 11 2008 - 22:49:26 CDT
