I purchased a Highpoint RocketRAID 2320 which I successfully installed on Fedora 8. I have been using it without issue for over a month with a 4-drive RAID-5 setup. Recently I purchased a 5th hard drive, shut the computer down, and plugged the new drive in. When I restarted the computer I went into the RAID BIOS and it showed the new drive there. I initialized the new drive without issue.
Upon rebooting I received the following error:
special device /dev/sdb does not exist
Obviously my raid filesystem would not mount and the RAID config utility that ships with these cards can not connect to my Array.
I shut the computer down and removed the new drive thinking it might have caused the problem. Booting with my previously working configuration, I am still receiving the same error. Please help!
