Hi guys, after a few days of problems I will try to find my luck here with you..
well, I have a Hp Proliant ML110 G4 Server with 2 x 500GB SATA discs (same) where I want to install Centos 4.x
Installation is not a problem if I install straight without and RAID, and also software RAID is working but.. I want Hardware RAID..
I have also a USB floppy to load drivers with..
I have tried with many different distributions, Centos 4.2 and 4.4(32-bit and 64-bit)
Red Hat Linux Enterprise and SUSE, all with the same result.
I have tried different drivers for the SATA RAID, written to a floppy with rawwrite.
Both from HP website and from the cd that came with the machine.
And it looks good until I have to choose the disks where I want to install, it shows 2 disks
sda and sdb... It should show just 1 disk when I have created the array (RAID1 - mirroring)
I have tried to choose one of the disks and also both disks but then when it is installed and the reboot the system halts with a blinking cursor up in the left corner, the system won't start..
Why I want to make hardware RAID work is because if one hdd should crash I would like to replace the disk and reboot the system without errors... If I use software raid1 I cannot mirror the /boot, or??
Are there any experts in this area that can help me install the RAID1 on a HP proliant ml110 G4?
Or is it just not possible to install the hardware RAID1??
Hey again.. well I've looking around and as far as I can see it it a "fake-raid" so I
did the software RAID1 and made RAID1 on SWAP , /boot and the rest of the harddrive, I thnink that will work okay for me also.. I hope...
Next time when I buy a server I will have to check a little bit more =)
