I have installed an Adaptec 2230SLP SCSI card in an Intel server. Connected to it is a dual channel Adaptec storage array with six drives. The install went OK and I created a hardware raid with all drives with no problems.
The OS running on the system is RHEL 3.0. I installed the RPM for the SCSI card from the adaptec CD. So far, doing OK.
I manually installed the aacraid module using insmod. There are no error messages. The module shows up OK. fdisk and mkfs execute OK. I create a mount point and mount the disk. Everything is great.
But when I reboot the system the aacraid module is not loaded.
This entry is in /etc/modules.conf:
alias scsi_hostadapter2 aacraid
From what little I know about kernel modules, I think the entry in modules.conf should load aacraid, but it doesn't.
I've been looking on LQ and in the Linux Docs area for ideas, but so far haven't found much to help me. That's mostly because kernel modules is a weak area of mine. Can someone with some muscle in loading modules assist me? Every idea will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
