Description of problem:
The aacraid driver reports its logical drives as removable media.
Anaconda won't install to removable media.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Do an install of roswell onto an adaptec 5400S raid controller.
Actual Results: Anacoda reports no installable boot device.
Cannot run fdisk or druid from anaconda. fdisk works fine from
Expected Results: Should have listed aacraid devices as installable
A check was put into anaconda in isys/isys.c
in the function doIsScsiRemovable() to work around the fact that
adaptec aac raid controllers report the drives as being removable media.
The check was specific to DELL and HP branded controllers.
Now there is an Adaptec branded controller as well. The inquiry
string returned is:
Vendor: ADAPTEC Model: Adaptec xxxxxx
The code needs to make the same check for the string "ADAPTEC".
katzj, weren't you testing something similar yesterday?
Worked around in CVS, work-around is to use expert mode as expert mode lets you
install to removable media.
Err... let me make that a little bit more clear since that only makes very murky
sense to me :)
Workaround committed to CVS so that isys won't think that they're removable.
You can work around the problem without the changed code by using expert mode.
