Description IBM Bug Proxy 2003-10-10 19:21:38 UTC
The following has be reported by IBM LTC: Hardware Environment: p630 7028-6C4 5703 RAID Adapter 2104 Storage exp plus, which has 11 disks in the slots all the disks is 18G Software Environment: RHEL3 RC3 kernel: 2.4.21-4.EL Steps to Reproduce: 1. using sisconfig to format 5 disks for advanced function 2. using sisconfig to create a RAID5 disk array(/dev/sdc), which is composed of the first three disks 3. "fdisk -l /dev/sdc" will report a 36G /dev/sdc 4. using sisconfig to add the 4th disk to disk array /dev/sdc 5. "fdisk -l /dev/sdc" will still report a 36G /dev/sdc Actual Results: "fdisk -l" still report old size after adding new disks to RAID5 disk array Expected Results: "fdisk -l /dev/sdc" should report a 54G /dev/sdc Additional Information: 1. after using "w" command of "fdisk" to reread partition table and sync disk, trying another "fdisk -l /dev/sdc" will report the correct size: 54G 2. after adding the 5th disk to the disk array /dev/sdc, "fdisk -l /dev/sdc" report the old size too.*** Bug 4878 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***Over to the Service team to track into Update 1.Glen / Greg Please open RHEL 3 RC1 problem. Thanks

which block/scsi device is this? what is sisconfig ? it seems to not do the right things to notify the kernel
Comment 2 IBM Bug Proxy 2003-10-13 02:02:50 UTC
------ Additional Comments From email@example.com 2003-12-10 21:43 ------- 5703 is a PCI-X Dual-Channel Ultra320 SCSI RAID adapter. 2104 is a external storage device, which could contain up to 14 SCSI hard disks. sisconfig is a utility programs for the ibmsis storage driver, which could config RAID disk arrays. It is a part of ibmsis-utils.
Comment 3 Arjan van de Ven 2003-10-13 08:04:35 UTC
Either of these is not doing the invalidates it should be; however that's not ours to fix given the proprietary nature of ibmsis. Closing as "NOTABUG" since that's the closest to "NOTOURBUG".
