RedHat 7.2 installation failed with "No valid devices were found" error
message on DL380 G2. Embedded Smart Array 5i is the boot controller on
DL380 G2 .
Servers : DL380 G2
OS : RedHat 7.2 Enterprise RC1
Embedded "Smart Array 5i" as boot ctlr with 1 drive(RAID 1).
Also seen on PL8500 with embedded array controller and SA5300. I chose
custom install and partition automatically, disk druid and fdisk.
This problem is not found on the DL320 ATA.
It is failing on all array controllers.
I was able to reproduce the problem on our Compaq PL380 with an embedded Smart
Array 5i with the re0925.4EE tree, which was beta 1 for Red Hat Linux
Enterprise. It used the 2.4.9-0.12 kernel.
However, with the latest tree, re1002.1EE, which uses the 2.4.9-0.15 kernel, the
install went smoothly with no problems at all. It appears that the problem has
already been fixed. Please reopen this report if you see the problem reappear.
If necessary, we could probably make the re1002.1EE tree available to you if
you would like to verify it for yourself.
