Description Mike Libassi 2006-03-16 13:49:13 UTC
Description of problem:
pci.ids file has entries for new QLogic HBA cards (24xx series):
"1077  QLogic Corp" 
2422  QLA2422 Fibre Channel Adapter
2432  QLA2432 Fibre Channel Adapter


pcitable is missing the two entries.
0x1077  0x2422  "qla2300"
0x1077  0x2432  "qla2300"

The 2422 and 2432 use the qla2300 driver.  Upon insall on a blade server (that
boots form SAN) the initrd image would not have any qla2xxx /2300 drivers and
kernel panic on boot.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Installing RH4 on a blade server that boots from a SAN with the new 2400 series HBA.

Actual results:
Kernel panic at boot..not able to find root device.

Expected results:
initrd image built at install needs to have the 2300 driver for 24xx series HBA

Additional info:
0x1077  0x2422  "qla2300"
0x1077  0x2432  "qla2300"
into the hwdata source pcitable.  Rebuilt hwdata and put into our install. 
Installed and boot w/o error.

Added the the entries:
Attached updated pcitable
