Description Dan Dunham 2002-11-01 16:31:49 EST
Description of Problem:
I am attempting to kickstart a box with an Adaptec 5400S RAID card, which has a
single 100GB logical raid device defined.  The aacraid module loads fine, but
I'm getting the error: "no valid devices were found on which to create new
filesystems".  If I break into the shell (alt-F2), I see that anaconda has
created a /tmp/sda device file, and I am able to fdisk this and create
filesystems on the device (which further indicates to me that the aacraid module
is not the issue).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Redhat 7.2

I have tracked this down further.  It appears that this particular controller
reports itself as removable, so the device gets taken off the disklist.  There
is a hack in isys.c to work around this problem for the DELL and HP OEM versions
of the controller.  The attached patch extends this fix to the Adaptec version
of the controller.
