DISKS NOT AVAILABLE FOR PARTITIONING

By kwasiboakye ·
WE HAVE INSTALLED SCO UNIX VER. 5.0.4 ON A COMPAQ PROLIANT 1600. THE TOTAL DISK SPACE IS SUPPOSED TO BE 27GB OF 9GB. WE ARE ONLY ABLE TO SEE 9GB. WE ARE THEREFORE UNABLE TO PARTITION. WHAT ARE WE NOT DOING CORRECTLY?

Doublecheck w/ compaq and make sure that the board can support a drive that size.

I have several 1600's, lots with 50+ Gig
no hardware limitations here.

If there is a referance partition, go to F10 on boot and use the Compaq array config utility to set up your physical RAID array.
if no utility partition is on the drive, youcan get this utility off of your Compaq Smart Start CD or download it from compaq.com.
Once this is done, the full array should be detected in the standard SCO installation

I'd agree with answer 2, using the SmartStart CD you need to firstly wipe any exsisting configurations and then to reset everything to your requirments you need to configure the smart raid controller before anything can be done with the drives, alsoinstall the tools into the compaq partition so that next time you need to do a change you wont need to find the CD. A 30Mb partition will be setup with all the tools needed.
We have several Compaq servers ranging in specs from 1600 to 6400 and with the new controllers you can do some great stuff, like expanding an array. I'm an NT4 guy so I don't have a clue about Unix I would presure these functions are the same regardless of operating system!
