Beleg-ia gets an upgradeSunday, 01 Mar 2009 20:36:28 · 2 minute read
It happened a couple of weeks ago now, I’ve upgraded the storage in beleg-iÃ¢. 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

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…
