I too have the same problem.  We have a Megaraid series 428 and 438
on separate servers.  After installing Redhat 6.1 I could only see
the first logical drive.  Recompiling did not help.

Comment 2 jlee 1999-10-28 17:16:59 UTC
Try compiling the latest kernel 2.2.13.  That seemed to fix the
problem for me.

Comment 3 Richard Keech 1999-11-30 06:12:59 UTC
I too see this problem.  Host is Dell 4300 with Dell Power Edge Raid
Controller (PERC) II, which is OEM of AMI Megaraid.
Only the first logical disk could be seen, despite all logical disks
showing in the bios messages at boot time.
If booting to Red Hat 5.2 rescue disks, then all logical disks
can be seen.

*** Bug 8034 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***This should be fixed in the Raw Hide kernel.

Logic added to linux/drivers/scsi/scsi.c to probe all LUNs on MegaRAID
