RHEL 4 WS & onboard raid controller problem
I have a supermicro 1u server that I want to setup a RAID1 array on. I can enable the onboard raid controller in the bios as either the Intel ICH7R or Adaptec controller, and can create the mirrored array just fine.
When I try and boot into rhel 4 setup however instead of it only seeing 1 drive as I expect, it sees both of the sata 500gb drives and only gives me an option for to create a software raid array which isn't what I want.
I was under the impression that hte 2.6 kernel recognized that chipset and raid controller, but could it be as simple as having to provide a driver anyways?
I've setup tons of raid systems on Win32 based systems, but this is my first under linux.
