Description Caitlyn M. Martin 2004-12-21 22:57:09 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041111 Firefox/1.0 Description of problem: Installation of RHEL 3.0 on a Dell PowerEdge 2850 with an LSI Megaraid2 RAID controller. Installer offers LSI Megaraid2 as a driver to be installed but then fails to find the driver. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 2.4.21-15.EL How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Install RHEL linux 2. Fails to find hard drive -- select LSI Megaraid2 driver 3. Attempting to continue installing the OS will fail due to lack of a hard drive to install on. Actual Results: System continued to fail to find controller. After ungzip'ing and uncpio'ing the driver it is possible to go to a command prompt and insmod the driver. At that point the installer recognized the array and I was able to partition the storage. Expected Results: Installer should have loaded the megaraid2 driver and recognized the array. Additional info: The controller is actually an LSI Logic PERC 4e/Di which is a Megaraid2 according to Dell's website. I did download a driver from Dell's website which did not correct the problem. The instructions which came with it specified that it would fail and that I should then install the LSI Megaraid2 driver from the list in the installer. It did not work as described above.

This problem was corrected in update 4 which correctly detects the driver. -CMM

This was fixed in RHEL3 U4. Here is a copy of the Errata System message: "An errata has been issued which should help the problem described in this bug report. This report is therefore being closed with a resolution of ERRATA. For more information on the solution and/or where to find the updated files, please follow the link below. You may reopen this bug report if the solution does not work for you. http://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHBA-2004-550.html" Obviously, the latest release kernel should be used (RHSA-2005:472), and U6 is currently in beta and will be released soon (RHSA-2005:663).
