SXCE: Adding HP Smart Array Controller Driver
Actually this thread's should sound like "SXCE: Adding HP Smart Array Controller Driver for Solaris 10".
I try to install Solaris Nevada build 104 on a HP Proliant DL380 G4.
Initially without succes: SXCE has no driver on board voor HP's "Smart Array Controller", so Solaris can't see the disk that is connected to the controller.
I went looking for a solution and found that HP does have a driver for Solaris 10.
There is even a fine manual which describes the installation:
- "Burn the driver to a CD"
- "Choose 5 to add a driver from some other source".
Although I did this "by the book", the installer just doesn't pick up the driverpackage, so nothing happens.
And I am stuck. Maybe this procedure works allright in Solaris 10, but with SXCE definitely not.
Now I am thinking of adding the driver to the .iso itself, to make it come with the SXCE installation automagically.
Therefore I have to know in what directory the driverpackage has to live to be picked up at install-time.
Thanks & regards, C.
