    hi , i have installed a second hdd to my vps , but cpanel donot detect it in format mount a new drive. what can i do ?

    i get this error : Sorry I could not find any new disks

    Code:
    root@server2 [~]# fdisk -l
    
    Disk /dev/xvda: 268.4 GB, 268435456000 bytes
    255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 32635 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
    
        Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
    /dev/xvda1   *           1          13      104391   83  Linux
    /dev/xvda2              14       32635   262036215   8e  Linux LVM
    
    Disk /dev/xvdb: 214.7 GB, 214748364800 bytes
    255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 26108 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
    
    Disk /dev/xvdb doesn't contain a valid partition table
    root@server2 [~]#
    as u see , in the ssh , /dev/xvdb is detected . but i dont know why cpanel cant see it :(

    i can manually mount it as volgroup2 , and mount it as /home2 and use it , i already did this on a other vps , but anyway by doing that , cpanel creates new accounts in home2 , and use that successfully but , rearrange accounts dont work on that , and still gives there is only 1 hdd in the system.
    so i need cpanel to detect it rather manually mounting it.

    Hi, i´m having the same issue using WHM/Cpanel as a XEN4 domU with CentOS 5.3.

    I just added a third hard-drive, named as /dev/sdb1 to use it as backup-drive.
    I can do a mount manually but then also this seems to be a bug in the actual cpanel version ?!

    Is there a Solution up to now ?

    Thanks
    Dominik

    I'm running WHM 11.32.2 (build 18) and added a new disk but llikewise I don't get the option to format/mount it via WHM. Its also not showing up under current disk usage

    ls /dev/sd* shows its on the machine as sdf
    Is there a command to have whm rescan for disks ahead of any schedule it might use?

    i ran into this problem as well, on 3 servers. 2 new that i need to setup, and 1 old. none of them show the option to format/mount a new drive.
