We have a HP DL360 G4 server with a SmartArray 6i hardware raid controller, we want to run CentOS + Bluequartz (nuonce.net) on it as a web/email server.
We tried to install the OS with the raid 1 option but got the following error:
File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 1122, in ?
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/kickstart.py", line 1440 in setInstallData
raise KickstartError, e
kickstart.KickstartValueError: specified disk sda in partition command which does not exist
install exited abnormally
After hours of searching forums/google etc I have found that (I think) this is not working because CentOS does not support or have a driver for this raid controller.
If we install it as a 'single disk install' it installs okay and the controller does 'raid' the data but CentOS does not recognise it as raid therefore we have no way of monitoring the raid through the OS/Bluequartz.
After spending another few hours searching HP's forums i found there is software that will monitor the raid but none for CentOS.
So my question is does anybody know how I can get CentOS to recognise the controller/drives or is there driver out there somewhere?
Changing the controller is not really an option as it is built into the server - we would probably change OS/software before changing hardware!
Any recommendation's / suggestion's would be much appreciated!!
