Description of problem:
I have some PowerEdge 2550 servers. These servers have both the internal
PERC 3Di raid and a PERC 3Dc card in them.
I am working on creating a Kickstart CD and I have a problem with the
order of how the raid devices are installed. The PERC 3Dc (megaraid) is
found first and gets set-up as /dev/sda, the PERC 3Di (aacraid) get
detected second and gets set-up as /dev/sdb. I need to get the 3Di to be
/dev/sda during the install.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot the bootdisk.img from a standard RHE3.0-WS CD
2. At the boot: prompt type vmlinuz initrd=initrd.img ks=cdrom:/ks.cfg
Actual Results: The install will start, but the megaraid device is setup as
/dev/sda and the aacraid device is setup as /dev/sdb
Expected Results: The device parameter in the ks.cfg file should have set the
aacraid device as scsihost0 and allowed the kernel to set it up as /dev/sda.
Marking as NEEDINFO based on comments to anaconda-devel-list. Will post a link
to the relevant archives later so we can keep this all in sync.
