Question about linux Particians, this silly web host have given me now free ones :(

Hey guys, im having some trouble with particians on my dedicated server, does this look normal?

[root@s15260266 ~]# df -h
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/md1              989M  989M     0 100% /
devpts                989M  989M     0 100% /dev/pts
/dev/md5              989M  989M     0 100% /usr
/dev/md6              989M  989M     0 100% /var
/dev/md7              989M  989M     0 100% /home
none                  989M  989M     0 100% /tmp
df: `/proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc': No such file or directory

I cant install fudge all, and im not too clever with particians, so all advise welcome :)

It's not so easy, you cannot just remove partitions. What's more, these partitions are built under mdadm (mdX) , softraid as m points out. It's not easy to help you unless you give us more details: how did you get there exactly, what's the distribution, what's the hardware and so on.

Ok well, it first looked like this

/dev/md1              989M  989M     0 100% /
/dev/md5              4.9G  559M  4.4G  12% /usr
/dev/md6              4.9G  403M  4.5G   9% /var
/dev/md7              137G  127M  137G   1% /home
none                  497M     0  497M   0% /tmp

Then I did this  umount -l /

and now you see the above, I re-imaged my server, and it seems that the host didnt get me alot, as / was showing as 100%, but its new.

So ofcourse I couldnt install software and get going, im good with linux just extremely new to how this partician stuff works.

looks like all your filesystems are mounted on the same mount point /dev/md1. have you played with softraid configuration?

you know this part

/dev/md1              989M  989M     0 100% /
/dev/md5              4.9G  559M  4.4G  12% /usr
/dev/md6              4.9G  403M  4.5G   9% /var
/dev/md7              137G  127M  137G   1% /home
none                  497M     0  497M   0% /tmp

This is how I found the server from a reimage, bit strange, and ofcourse I just broke it above.

This server isnt full, straight question, can we remove these to give me some room?

ok well
I hope I can answer your questions, and thanks for trying to help me.

I basically can login the webhost, and choose an operating system, its called an image.

The reimage takes about 1 hr, so im assuming the people at the webhost bring over this new image.

Before I had fedora core 4 64 version and didnt have problems.

I had so many problems using 64 version, so I decided to goto 32, and reimage the server.

and thats where you see the particians above, not the 100% full ones which I broke :(

I just have no idea why the webhost made a partition that was 100% full and made it link with /

Its totally dumb, its a 160 hard drive as you can probably see

anything else you need to know?

i think you need to contact them and tell them that their "reimaging" stuff doesn't work. or you can try to reimaging it again.

So guys I reimaged the server again, I just wanted your opinions if this looked healthy for a dedicated web server:

[root@s15260266 /]# df -h
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/md1              989M  217M  722M  24% /
/dev/md5              4.9G  418M  4.5G   9% /usr
/dev/md6              4.9G   23M  4.9G   1% /var
/dev/md7              137G  564K  137G   1% /home
none                  497M     0  497M   0% /tmp
[root@s15260266 /]#

yup, looks fine.

I agree, it's ok now. Looks like there was some problem with the imaging process. I'd check with the hoster about that, just in case: you don't want it to happen while the server is in production.

msklizmantasCommented:
if you need to reimage server, which is in production - you already have some problem :))
