Operating Systems SCO SCO OS 6 Driver for LSIL SAS1064E Raid Controller Post 303042362 by thm2222 on Sunday 22nd of December 2019 06:55:30 PM

Hi all,

Yes, I now have installed a second SCO 6 instance on a 3rd hard disk in the same system and the same controller. I can now boot on that new instance and have root acceess there.
It runs in an intel Compaq box with an LSI Logic Corp MPT SAS RAID board SAS1064E-IR.

There are 3 disks.

Code:
In slot 4 is an ATA SATA disk that I boot from.

In slot 1 and 2 are SAS drives. They are configured to be in  a RAID configuration. 

SLOT      ID            LUN        Product

4              0              0              ATA (this is the new boot root disk)

4              1              0              LSILOGIC Volume (this is the RAID)

The new root device is /dev/root which is the ATA drive. 

The LSILOGIC Volume is the old RAID volume that also contains an SCO 6 installation. 
Now I need to get access to that old installation, but I can't seem to find the correct /dev/?? to mount. 

Which one would be the correct device(s) for the LSILOGIC Volume? 
If it is not there, how do I create it? mkdev...?.
And how do I mount it? Currently “mount /dev/sdxx /mnt/test”¯ throws errors about not being a DOS drive or not being a correct device.

Do I still have to run mkdev hd?

Thanks, T.

NAME
ataraid -- ATA software RAID support SYNOPSIS
device ata device ataraid DESCRIPTION
The ataraid driver provides support for so-called software RAID (sometimes referred to as fake RAID or pseudo RAID). When a controller that supports software RAID is instructed to create a RAID array, its BIOS writes data structures in a specific metadata format to the disks. These data structures are picked up by the ataraid driver, so that FreeBSD can work with the array. The ataraid driver has to understand the specific metadata format of a controller BIOS in order to support its RAID capabilities. Read-only support for a metadata format means that FreeBSD can use the given RAID array for normal read/write operations. Creation and rebuild of such arrays has to be done from the controller BIOS. Read and write support for a metadata format means that FreeBSD can use the given RAID array for normal read/write operations. Additionally, the atacontrol(8) utility can be used to create, rebuild, update and fail such RAID arrays. The ataraid driver can read the following metadata formats: o Adaptec HostRAID o Highpoint V2 RocketRAID o Highpoint V3 RocketRAID o Intel MatrixRAID o Integrated Technology Express (ITE) o JMicron o LSI Logic V2 MegaRAID o LSI Logic V3 MegaRAID o NVIDIA MediaShield o Promise FastTrak o Silicon Image Medley o Silicon Integrated Systems (SiS) o VIA Tech V-RAID o FreeBSD PseudoRAID The ataraid driver can write the following metadata formats: o Highpoint V2 RocketRAID o Intel MatrixRAID o JMicron o Promise FastTrak o Silicon Integrated Systems (SiS) o VIA Tech V-RAID o FreeBSD PseudoRAID It is also possible to use software RAID on controllers that do not have special software RAID capabilities. See atacontrol(8) for details. FILES
/dev/ar* ATA RAID device nodes SEE ALSO
ata(4), atacontrol(8) CAVEATS
RAID5 is not supported at this time. Code exists, but it neither uses nor maintains parity information. AUTHORS
