Install Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 x86-64 bit SE upgrd 3on IBM x3400 M No Drive found
Trying to Install Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 Server Edition upgrade 3 x86-64 bit on IBM x3400 M3 gives an error message indicating no drive found.
The Hard disk drive is SATA.
We need this specific OS version as we are going to prepare new server for already existed DB Tier server having this OS.
have you contacted red hat ?
you are paying anywhere from $340 to $6500 USD per year for the required support contract
You might want to use it
the older RHEL5 ?? point what ?
from the post i am guessing RHEL 5.3 ( 5.9 is current in the 5 series )
will run fine on sata drives
How is this drive partitioned and it's format ?
RHEL5 needs an ext2 boot sector and ext2 or ext3 " / "
Why this OS
Thanks a lot for your reply.
1. We don't have support from Red Hat.
2. OS is 5.3
3. We need this particular version:
Currently we have ORACLE EBS. 2 servers for this application. dbTier and appsTier. We decided to replace current db tier server with this IBM. Then cold backup current db and extract it again to the new server. So it should be same OS version with same packages, Other wise it would not work as it has been moved to different OS.
Is there any way to solve it?
you might need software from the RHN repo
see the troubleshooting section of the RHEL install guide
Using old, outdated software for a production server is NEVER, EVER A GOOD IDEA. If it's so old that it won't support current hardware, it's time to upgrade.
Red Hat Linux reply
This is what red hat says regarding this issue:
6.3. Trouble During the Installation
6.3.1. No devices found to install Red Hat Enterprise Linux Error Message
If you receive an error message stating No devices found to install Red Hat Enterprise Linux, there is probably a SCSI controller that is not being recognized by the installation program.
Check your hardware vendor's website to determine if a driver diskette image is available that fixes your problem. For more general information on driver diskettes, refer to Chapter 7, Updating drivers during installation on Intel and AMD systems.
check this link out:
So i think we should ask IBM to solve this issue.
and BUY a red hat support license
it is required
or migrate to CentOS ( one of the FREE rebuilds of RHEL )
cent makes it easy
see the section
"Migration an existing system from RHEL5 to CentOS 5"
