Is there anyone who is running CCD devices successfully?
I have done so, and I know others.
I have just spent 8 hrs loading data from disks to the ccd devices I
built and tested. As soon as I got the 15 GB of data loaded, I sync-ed
the system and rebooted. Lo and behold the ccd device would not come up.
I run fsck on it and it tells me bad super block, values disagree with
those in first alternate. I give it an alternate superblock number (32)
to fsck from, and tells me bad super block, magic number wrong. I just

I would guess that you've screwed up the configuration file somewhere
along the way. You *are* talking to /dev/ccd? and not the component
disks, aren't you?
All you guys that have responded have been a great help, but I just
don't get any confidence in this system.
I'm not overly impressed with the resilience of CCD either, if it
makes you any happer. But it does work.
I have also, in the last 24 hours, had the system lose the device files
for my /var /usr, and / file systems. Any ideas.
What is wrong with this disk system. I am about to trash it and go with
It's difficult to tell if you don't give any details. What kind of

happens if you do a newfs, copy a couple of files to it, and then
I believe I could have had an NT server up and running in half the time

With CCD? Of course, you'd also get 1/10th the performance, with or
Pardon the venting, but I have been working on this system now for
almost 18 hrs today, and I am now at start-over.
My sympathies. But you'll get more help if you give a few more
