Description kurt lorentzen 2006-03-27 19:39:06 UTC
Description of problem: Anaconda fails to recognize the SCSI drive on a Compaq DL380 with Integrated Smart Array Controller. It appears to load a driver for the array controller but fails to see the drive(s). FC4 auto-loads "cpqarray". I can select the cpqarray driver manually, but to no avail. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): See attached How reproducible: every time Steps to Reproduce: 1.Insert CD #1 2.Wait for installation target to be detected 3.Experience no drives. Actual results: No drives detected Expected results: Drives detected Additional info: Installing FC4 goes without a hitch on the same servers.

Comment 3 Euan Galloway 2006-04-11 17:03:10 UTC
Boot with noprobe (linux noprobe) manually add the e100 (if network install) and cpqarray drivers. have a working box. Without noprobe the symbios module (sym53c8xx) gets probed first, and if you load cpqarray afterwards it doesn't see the card anymore.
Comment 4 kurt lorentzen 2006-04-12 15:45:53 UTC
Thanks, Euan. I installed this way and indeed the installer recognized the array and FC5 installed on the drive. However, It won't boot from the drive after the installation completes. Is there some parameter that must be set for grub to kick in? (The message is the usual "Non-system disk or disk error. Strike any key to continue").
Comment 5 Yanko Kaneti 2006-10-07 01:57:00 UTC
See this bug I filed upstream http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=7279 and the corresponding debian bug http://bugs.debian.org/380272 This is still an issue with the latest rawhide kernels.
Comment 6 Yanko Kaneti 2006-10-13 23:47:52 UTC
Created attachment 138480 [details] proposed additional patch This patch works for me here as far as sym53c8xx_2 doesn't incorrectly claim the cpqarray raid. Also added to the kernel report.
Comment 7 Dave Jones 2006-10-16 20:40:02 UTC
A new kernel update has been released (Version: 2.6.18-1.2200.fc5) based upon a new upstream kernel release. Please retest against this new kernel, as a large number of patches go into each upstream release, possibly including changes that may address this problem. This bug has been placed in NEEDINFO state. Due to the large volume of inactive bugs in bugzilla, if this bug is still in this state in two weeks time, it will be closed. Should this bug still be relevant after this period, the reporter can reopen the bug at any time. Any other users on the Cc: list of this bug can request that the bug be reopened by adding a comment to the bug. In the last few updates, some users upgrading from FC4->FC5 have reported that installing a kernel update has left their systems unbootable. If you have been affected by this problem please check you only have one version of device-mapper & lvm2 installed. See bug 207474 for further details. If this bug is a problem preventing you from installing the release this version is filed against, please see bug 169613. If this bug has been fixed, but you are now experiencing a different problem, please file a separate bug for the new problem. Thank you.
Comment 8 Yanko Kaneti 2006-10-16 21:02:24 UTC
Still an issue with upstream, see my previous comments. In addition to the bug I've also posted to linux-scsi @ vger.
Comment 9 Dave Jones 2006-10-16 21:18:09 UTC
Please try that kernel update, I added a cpqarray patch which might help.
Comment 10 Yanko Kaneti 2006-10-16 22:00:37 UTC
If you mean Patch1106: linux-2.6-scsi-cpqarray-set-master.patch its a different thing. This bug is about sym53c8xx_2 claiming the 53C1510 integrated smartarray RAID before cpqarray. During an install this leaves the user without recognized hard disks. So for FC5 the deal is already done, as you can't change the install media retroactively. Please read my kernel bug report.
Comment 11 Yanko Kaneti 2006-10-16 22:03:45 UTC
And silly me forgot to add that attempting a latest rawhide install still has the same issue on this compaq, so I am afraid the FC6 install media will still carry this. Perhaps the bug should be moved a different version or something..
Comment 12 Chip Coldwell 2006-10-30 20:51:23 UTC
This is very likely the same bug as bug 205653, fixed in RHEL-5. I'll ping Dave Jones and ask him to include that patch in the next FC-5 kernel. Chip
Comment 13 Yanko Kaneti 2007-08-01 07:45:42 UTC
FC5 is EOLd. The fix for finally landed in linus' tree so everything should be fine for F8.

Comment 15 kurt lorentzen 2008-04-04 15:33:00 UTC
This seems to have been fixed in Fedora 6. It still (as of Fedora 8) requires the "noprobe" option and manual selection of "cpqarray" driver during install, but installs and boots properly once loaded. Previously it would install using ths method but would not boot after installation. Fixed.
