Beleg-Iâ gets an upgrade

It happened a couple of weeks ago now, I’ve upgraded the storage in beleg-iâ.  It now has 4x 500GB disks! I have them in two mirrors, one for the boot disk and one for data.

root@beleg-ia:/share/media# zpool status pool: rpool state: ONLINE scrub: none requested config:

NAME        STATE     READ WRITE CKSUM rpool       ONLINE       0     0     0 mirror    ONLINE       0     0     0 c4d0s0  ONLINE       0     0     0 c4d1s0  ONLINE       0     0     0

errors: No known data errors

pool: share state: ONLINE scrub: none requested config:

NAME        STATE     READ WRITE CKSUM share       ONLINE       0     0     0 mirror    ONLINE       0     0     0 c5d0s0  ONLINE       0     0     0 c5d1s0  ONLINE       0     0     0

errors: No known data errors

The above was achieved by doing something similar to this:

prtvtoc /dev/rdsk/c4d0s0 | fmthard -s - /dev/rdsk/c4d1s0

prtvtoc /dev/rdsk/c4d0s0 | fmthard -s - /dev/rdsk/c5d0s0

prtvtoc /dev/rdsk/c4d0s0 | fmthard -s - /dev/rdsk/c5d1s0

zpool attach -f rpool c4d0s0 c4d1s0

zpool attach -f share c5d0s0 c5d1s0

First we print the vtoc (volume table of contents) and pipe that to a format command. The -f was used to force the attachment, I followed instructions from several other sources and all has worked for me.

The ‘share’ pool is auto-mounted to /share which is cool.  Now with file systems galore using ZFS, `zfs list` give me the following output:

root@beleg-ia:/share/media# zfs list NAME                            USED  AVAIL  REFER  MOUNTPOINT rpool                          33.1G   424G    75K  /rpool rpool/ROOT                     4.79G   424G    18K  legacy rpool/ROOT/opensolaris         5.42M   424G  2.27G  / rpool/ROOT/opensolaris-1       4.79G   424G  4.55G  / rpool/dump                     1018M   424G  1018M  - rpool/export                   26.3G   424G    19K  /export rpool/export/home              26.3G   424G    21K  /export/home rpool/export/home/admin        28.8M   424G  28.8M  /export/home/admin rpool/export/home/ben          26.3G   424G  26.3G  /export/home/ben rpool/export/home/ben/backups  20.4M   424G  20.4M  /export/home/ben/backups rpool/swap                     1018M   425G  31.9M  - share                           126G   331G    19K  /share share/media                     126G   331G    27K  /share/media share/media/iTunes             5.66G   331G  5.66G  /share/media/iTunes share/media/misc                911M   331G   911M  /share/media/misc share/media/movies             61.8G   331G  61.8G  /share/media/movies share/media/pictures            425M   331G   425M  /share/media/pictures share/media/standup            5.32G   331G  5.32G  /share/media/standup share/media/torip              4.50G   331G  4.50G  /share/media/torip share/media/tv                 47.7G   331G  47.7G  /share/media/tv

So I’m pretty happy with it at the moment.  I’ll be looking at upgrading the motherboard next.  Something with 8 SATA channels so I can increase my HDD’s and potentially create a RAIDz for 4x 1TB drives…But we’ll have to see how funds go…
