Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 136989
cciss failed to install GRUB from anaconda
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:52 EST
Description of problem:
Compaq cciss.ko SCSI RAID on /dev/cciss/c0p0 failed to install GRUB
during an installation of FC3-3.1. I had to manually boot into the
rescue disc and use grub-install, and subsequently it worked great.
This will be a HUGE problem for RHEL4.
Compaq Proliant DL380
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Oops, the above should be /dev/ccis/c0d0 instead of c0p0.
This may be a duplicate of Bug #123249, could anyone please confirm?
My cciss machine just installed and booted fine. Are there any scsi
disks on the system so maybe the mapping wasn't right?
AFAIK there were no additional controllers and definitely no disks
that could be plugged in using /dev/sdX.
This bug sounds very similar to Bug #125808 which was closed NOTABUG.
After I left, the customer installed RHEL3 U3 and apparently it worked
fine, so this is going to be a problem when they try the same with
RHEL4. Want me to visit their site again, or borrow a server, to do
more intensive testing?

I doubt we can fix this for FC3. Tracking in Bug #125808 for RHEL4.
