Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 161744
confusion if multiple disk controllers
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:08 EST
Description of problem:
I have an Adaptec SCSI board and a Promise SATA controller on the MB. Anaconda
recognises both and loads the appropriate drivers. However (this is the
problem) it sees the Adaptec first, and assigns the disks on it to sda and sdb.
Unfortunately, the wrong choice for an upgrade.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Upgrade with appropriate hardware config
Adapted controller's disks get sda and sdb
Desired, actually. SATA disks get sda and sdb
Suggest allowing upgrade to assign the disk groups if more than one SCSI
You can load controllers in whatever order you prefer by booting with 'linux
noprobe' (or the more refined 'linux nostorage' to just not load storage
modules) and then manually load them in the order you want.
