Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 115803
no drives detected with HP Smart Array 642 controller
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:36 EST
Description of problem:
trying to install FC2 test1 on a HP ProLiant ML350 with an HP Smart
Array 642 contoller results in the correct kernel driver for the array
being loaded but no available disks found to install.
With Fedora Core 1 there are no problems and the install goes fine.
I think the problem may reside in the creation of the appropriate
device (e.g. /dev/cciss/c0d0).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install Fedora Core 2 test 1 on a Smart Array 642 controller
2. anaconda loads the correct kernel module but...
3. ...no disk can be found
installation is not possible
I should be able to install
all works fine with Fedora Core 1
cciss, cpqarray, and dac960 probing were busted in test1... I fixed
them the day after we froze, so the development tree should be good to
go for them.
