Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 21780
Install failure on Compaq 3200 RAID controller
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:30:07 EDT
Hardware: Proliant 5500 w/3200 RAID controller (w/64MB r/w cache), 2GB
RAM, several 9GB SCSI U2 drives for the arrays.
7.0 (respin) fails to complete its "Post Installation" portion of the
install. It shows approx 5% of the bar being complete and hangs there
indefinitely (went to lunch for 1 hr and still no progress). This seems
to prevent LILO from writing the MBR, so the system won't boot if you
restart it (hoping everything completed anyway).
We confirmed this problem ties directly to the 3200 controller by moving
the 3200 controller to another server we'd successfully installed on
before (using Compaq 221 RAID controller). Install hung in the same spot.
Problem doesn't appear to exist in RH6.2, as we were able to install 6.2
and then upgrade to 7.0 with no errors. 7.0 Upgrade produced no
Passed to QA to reproduce.
Any ideas matt?
Do you still see the problem with Red Hat Linux 7.1?
This appears to no longer be a problem on 7.1. The install went smoothly. Any
idea what changed in the 7.1 install?
it was probably a driver problem.
