Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 13587
LDs on aacraid ignored by beta3 installer as 'removable'.
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:56 EDT
Logical drives on aacraid-based controllers are ignored by the installer
because the disks are flagged "removable" by the driver.
Using the driver disk I created for the aacraid driver, (and hitting
Cancel after a couple passes through the "Please insert your driver disk
labeled ... again, again, again", it loaded the aacraid driver. However,
later I hit the message "no valid devices were found on which to create
new filesystems". Going to Alt-F3, I see the messages "Not in expert mode,
ignoring removable device sd[abc]".
Adaptec has set the removable device flag on the aacraid-controlled
devices, because while the system is running, root may use a management
app to add or delete a virtual drive.
Beta 4 exhibits the same problem. msw's testblacklist program doesn't seem to
be working as expected.
Will be fixed in beta5
Fixed in beta 5. Expert mode no longer necessary to install onto aacraid disks.
