I got this..!

fdisk -l /dev/emcpowera

Disk /dev/emcpowera: 21.4 GB, 21474836480 bytes
64 heads, 32 sectors/track, 20480 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 2048 * 512 = 1048576 bytes

Disk /dev/emcpowera doesn't contain a valid partition table

Re: loosing the persistency of mount point in suse linux

did you create a partition when you first got the lun. Typically you would use fdisk to create a partiton, in your case you would run fdisk /dev/emcpowera ...once you create a primary partition ..at that point ouput from fdislk -l should show partition emcpowera1. After that you would create your file system.

Re: loosing the persistency of mount point in suse linux

I skipped that fdisk..since I thought dont need to do fdisk sicne my entire LUN will be dedicated for one volume..

My question is if I do fdisk -l after the fdisk config.. can I just rename the emcpowera1 to emcpowera..before making the file system.. need to maintain our standard naming..

thanks

i don't think you can rename it ....you can rename powerpath device ..but not the partition itself. How did you do it on your other servers ?
