Additionally, note that the driver will not engage the SCSI core at init time. I can’t comment on this much as I haven’t tried it, but from my so far very brief perusing of the code it appears to be alright at first glance, basically doing the expected things. Also, I’ve seen that green LEDs on drives are flashing simultaneously at a frequency of about 0. So far, I haven’t had any luck duplicating this problem.

HP/ProLiant – Debian Wiki

Initially, there was some overlap in the boards which these two drivers support. In fact, you could extract the source tarballs from the source RPMs by using rpm2cpio. Installation report in Sign up using Facebook. These won’t work with very old kernels such as the 2.

HP ProLiant Servers

Information on official HP support offerings for Debian can be found on http: As soon as I started it again, the server hanged. Hardware RAID logical volumes are invisible to OS, physical disks are smsrt to OS, Debian could be installed but has to be handled with great care upon post-installation and when upgrading!

Hpsa should be fine for new installs on these controllers, however. Arrayprobe which may need modifications to work with the hpsa driver.


I have the same question. Message 6 of For the best viewing experience please update your browser to Google Chrome. Arfay download the following ISO: Smart Array on a RP Also, I wasn’t given a lot of time to turn this around, so my first test was to increase the read ahead cache to 8MB: Alexandre Lavoie This is because at driver init time,the SCSI core may not yet be initialized because llinux driver is a block driver and attempting to register it with the SCSI core in such a case would cause a hang.

Use ‘simple mode’ rather than ‘performant mode’ int Possible cause Yesterday by doing tests on different processes, I disabled postfix and the server stopped hanging.

With all the various distributions, it is difficult to come up with a set of bulletproof universal instructions for making such a switch, so we recommend that you simply continue to use cciss in such instances.

It neither modifies bootloader grub or lilo. Fixed issue where controllers that had no configured volumes did not show up in the OS. Password Please enter a password for your user account.

Server Fault works best with JavaScript enabled. The default in RHEL5 is ‘cfq’, which is actually pretty good in many cases. The cciss driver previously contained a feature which would enable it by default to run on Smart Array controllers which llnux did not explicitly recognize except so far as to be able to determine that they were some sort of Smart Array.

The hpsa driver has the ability to claim unknown Smart Arrays, however this is turned off by default so that it does not try to claim older controllers meant to be claimed by the cciss driver.

If you use the installer on the link it should work fine except for what was mentioned on the installation report. In particular, this system needed both sequential and random reads to be fast. Unable to install sybase on RHEL 5. Use these for systems using 2.

The installer comes pre-loaded with additional non-free firmware blobs which helps as you don’t need to modify the official iso’s. To install, download the RPM file, and use rpm -ihv rpmfile This will deposit the cciss.

Firmware – Storage Controller Version: There is not much logging, I mean normal Is write caching enabled on your RAID controller – I can’t remember if the s support it or not, if not then you can fairly easily overload your disks with logging lots of small writes to different files when it’s in write-through mode.
