Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1080
SILO installs on [possibly] wrong drive.
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:49 EDT
Earlier sparcs remap SCSI IDs 0 and 3 in OpenBOOT. Linux
ignores this. SILO then proceeds to install on the lowest
SCSI ID. If you have a drive on 0 and 3, SILO will install
on 0, the sparc will try to boot off of ID 3.
Jeff, is this an installer issue (i.e. parameters written to the SILO
config file) or a silo issue itself?
Fixing this problem in silo would require knowing all the
Sun OBP versions in order to take appropriate corrective
measures. It's easier just to fix this problem in the
documentation by saying that on older suns's, you should make
sure that that unit numbers are the same as the target ID's by
setting the appropriate OpenPROM variable before using silo.
