I added a hardware RAID to my server. It was configured with the LSI-MR9361-8i as a 87TiB RAID 10.

sudo fdisk -l returns:

When I go to mount /dev/sda with sudo mount /dev/sda /mnt/UB_RAID I get the following error.

mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda,
       missing codepage or helper program, or other error

       In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
       dmesg | tail or so.

Obviously, I want the 87TiB, but what is happening here? I should be able to mount this quite easily.

Thanks.

You first have to create a filesystem on the block device before you can mount it.

For example:

mkfs.xfs /dev/sda
  • thank you. I ran parted /dev/sda mklabel gpt and sudo parted /dev/sda mkpart primary ext4 0G 87TB. I then ran your command above and it worked. Thanks again. – CENTURION Dec 28 '17 at 3:46
