  1. [ubuntu] Re: Switch from single disk to 2-disk RAID1

    I just tested this in a VM successfully. (As it turns out, I was wrong about the swap partition. The second partition is only a primary partition, and there's a logical partition, which contains...
  2. [ubuntu] Re: Switch from single disk to 2-disk RAID1

    Thanks! Grub is, indeed, installed to the MBR, and from what you're saying, it looks like it can handle md component partitions just fine. I'll definitely use that guide, modifying a bit, since /boot...
  3. [ubuntu] Switch from single disk to 2-disk RAID1

    My file server is currently running 12.04 (64-bit) on an Asus Crosshair II Formula. Currently the 100GB 7200k SATA system drive has three partitions:



    /boot
    swap
    / (on an LVM)


    I've...
  4. [ubuntu] Re: Searching for Hard Disk Surface Scan Tool

    Thanks again for the advice. After mapping the tests to a spreadsheet I've determined that 4 out of 9 disks should probably be RMA'd. Thankfully Western Digital has a nice RMA process.
  5. [ubuntu] Re: Searching for Hard Disk Surface Scan Tool

    Good information, thanks! I'm not sure if I'd trust my scripting skills enough to accurately test the whole disk. Any recommendations?


    This sounds like what I need. I thought badblocks could...
  6. [ubuntu] Re: Searching for Hard Disk Surface Scan Tool

    I'd like to do this without power-cycling the server (I have hot swap drive bays), ergo I'd prefer a Linux tool. Thanks, though!
  7. [ubuntu] Searching for Hard Disk Surface Scan Tool

    I recently inherited 9 x 2TB from a friend's failed array. As I don't know which disk(s) is/are bad, I'd like to perform a surface scan of the sectors on each disk.

    Most of the tools I've found...

    [other] Re: Rocketraid monitoring help :(

    I just got this working with my rr2680. I had to tweak around a bit, but here are the items I remember.

  9. [all variants] Faux Serial Console Access (Webcam + Mimic USB Keyboard?)

    In an attempt to avoid an XY problem, I'll separate my objective from my proposed implementation:

    I'd like serial-console-ish access to my server. This way I can remotely troubleshoot the...
  10. [SOLVED] Re: Default to Older Kernel (Hidden in Submenu)

    Fantastic guide. All I had to do was update /etc/default/grub with:

    ...
    GRUB_DEFAULT="Previous Linux versions>Ubuntu, with Linux 2.6.38-8-server"
    ...

    ...and run sudo update-grub to commit...
  11. [SOLVED] Default to Older Kernel (Hidden in Submenu)

    Because my RocketRaid 2680 drivers won't run on anything newer than 2.6.38-8, I haven't been able to use newer kernels. The only way to boot from this kernel version, however, is to manually select...
  12. [all variants] Re: [SOLVED] Firefox - Could not initialize applicaiton security component

    The link 2 posts before helped me out. It wasn't a disk space or permissions issue, but rather a corrupted cert8.db file:

  13. [ubuntu] Re: Trying to install Ubuntu -- it ignores Windows completely and reports the whole H

    This is exactly what I needed. Thanks so much!
  14. [ubuntu] Re: Connect to Windows 7 share from Ubuntu 10.10

    I have the same issue. Thanks for the tip about Windows Live Sign-In. That fixed the issue with one of my Windows 7 machines. There's still another without the Windows Live Sign-In software...

    That's what I thought too. It's been a while since I've been in Linux land; where is my sources list?

  21. [ubuntu] 9.10 Server LAMP "Role" After Installation?

    I accidentally pressed Enter on the LAMP role of the 9.10 Server installation, which made it just go to the next section instead of selecting the LAMP stack. Is there any way to enable that role...
