I am trying to set up a RHEL server to hold a database (SAP MaxDB). I have already set up hardware raid two disks on raid 1 and 4 disks on raid 5. The hardware set up the raids and show two arrays when booting up. I installed the OS only on the smaller 36g raid 1 array. I need to setup a mount point for /sapmnt on the raid 5 array, which will hold my data for the db. When I run command fdisk -l,     I see /dev/sda 36g and I also /dev/sdb 219g.  What do I do so I can place mountpoint? I have not formatted sdb at all and when I run fdisk /dev/sdb it says I already have a partition on the LVM. When I am all done would like to have db log files with os on raid 1 and db data on raid 5.  

Thank you,
