Replacing a SCSI HD on a NCR Worldmark 4400 UNIX system

Replacing a SCSI HD on a NCR Worldmark 4400 UNIX system

Hello everyone,

I have been assigned a task of replacing or finding someone who can
replace a SCSI hard that failed. We followed through with the initial
Mylex setup utility, but since I am not familiar with this hardware, I
suspect I am missing a step.

IF someone can provide some extra documentation or other resources, I
can provide any additional information necessary.

We are using a Mylex DAC960 controller card.  A RAID7 drive has failed
and is marked DED.  The drive, an 18.4 GB Seagate Cheetah ST118202LC,
was replaced with a new similarly sized drive, a Seagate Cheetah
ST318406LC.  Our UNIX system lost track of its device name.  The
device name was /dev/dsk/c100t0d1.  How can we attach the device name
to the new drive, if UNIX is not detecting the drive, or find the
device name for the new drive?  We do have a utility called 'sysadm'.

Our system is a NCR Worldmark 4400 running MP-RAS UNIX System V
Release 4.



1. Linux Kernel on NCR Worldmark 5100 and 3450 Workstation

Does anyone know anything about getting a Linux kernel to boot on either
of these machines?  The Worldmark 5100 is a massive multiprocessor Pentium
Pro machine with two MCA buses.  The 3450 is a quad-Pentium workstation
with a single MCA bus.

Thanks for any info.
