NetRaid 1M . Got bad time whit Kernel 2.6 ?


Hello,

I got a HP NetServer LH4r whit an NetRaid 1M inside. (Connected to an array of 5 disk).

I booted that whit an old Gentoo Live CD (Kernel 2.4). All is detected fine, working nice, my array is mapped on /dev/sda.

I installed my gentoo , emerging things, all went good. Then I compiled my kernel, In my lsmod I seen that my card was taking megaraid module, so I built it in my new 2.6.11 kernel.

When I boot whit that, I see just "nothing". The header of the megaraid is here but nothing is found. Then the troubleshooting goes, I tryed a lots of thing, kernel opt. other drivers, nothing do. I browsed the web, some pepole look like having the same issue .. But still no working solustion for me.

Now I'm compiling a 2.4 kernel , I bet it will work. (Because the megaraid driver was rewritten at kernel 2.6.9)

Some idea ?

Thanks for reading !

Hello,

I facing the similar problem. I am using HP NetRAID-1M, and its is not being detected on FC3, though the setup seems to load sym53c8xx and megaraid drivers. No hard disks are detected.

Could your find a solution?

Thanks for any help.

Regards
Jabran

Yup sure !


2 things !

1- You need the megaraid driver

2- You need the OLD megaraid driver ...

I seen somewhere on the net someone that provide a driver disk for fedora 3 that have the OLD megaraid driver ...


Note : Why dosent take the new one ? Because they droped the support of the card in it ... ((

Thanks for the quick response.

I have been looking an updated driver, but could not find it. Do you remember the source of the driver availablity?

If not found, then perhaps I shall replace the RAID controller with some other model which would be comaptible with Kernel 2.6.x.

Thanks for any further infromation.

The only driver that I could found was for Red Hat 7.0 kernel 2.2.x. The script installing that driver does not install the driver after detecting kernel 2.6.9.

I found another discussion thread here (http://www.centos.org/modules/newbb/...#forumpost2445) which is about building a driver disk for CentOS4 (the distribution, Which I am using at the moment, and it is based on RHEL4). I shall try that procedure and will post back the results.

As far as the option of changing the RAID controller is concerned, the server does not support any other Linux compatible RAID controller, so this is not an option .

One more thing, did you also build the driver disk for your linux distribution? if yes, can you please share the disk image or any helpful information for how to build the driver disk?

Thanks for your feedback.
