Fixed wrong usage of a pointer for sysfs symlink. Later, after checking this one out a bit more, I’ll edit this to reflect what I find. The following list of controllers are supported by cciss on distributions based on kernels before 2. If you’re already running cciss on these devices, and upgrade to a kernel containing the hpsa driver, you shouldn’t have to do anything, as cciss will continue to claim these devices. These older boards have not been tested and are not supported with hpsa , and cciss 4 should still be used for these. Worked fine, no firmware required. Installation report in

This is simply because making the switch is somewhat complex and it is easy to make a mistake or smrt something and get your system into an unbootable state. Hpsa should be fine for new e2000i on these controllers, however. The hpsa driver has the ability to claim unknown Smart Arrays, however this is turned off by default so that it does not try to claim older controllers meant to be claimed by the cciss driver.

I searched with some breaks nearly a week around to find a way to workaround. I’d forgotten you could do that Groo, that said I’m still worried why he can’t install it properly, wonder if this means the whole PSP install failed????


In the case of kernels with cciss and hpsa drivers which do have overlapping sets of supported controllers, by default, cciss will claim these devices if it is loaded prior to hpsa which it normally will be.

Hardware RAID logical volumes are invisible to OS, physical disks are exposed to OS, Debian could be installed but has to be handled with great care upon post-installation and when upgrading!

The server has also a 2-port Pi Smart Array controller integrated on the mainboard. By using our site, you acknowledge that you have read and e2000i our Cookie PolicyPrivacy Policyand our Terms of Service. If necessary, deb package will compile kernel as well.

The current list of controllers that are supported by cciss only: If you would like to run hpsa instead, there is a new module parameter to cciss, “cciss. I can’t comment on this much as I haven’t tried it, but from my so far very brief perusing of the code it appears to be alright at first glance, basically doing the expected things.

The binary RPMs created by the source RPMs here do not do these things, they only build the driver arrya and initrd image. Sign up using Email and Password.


There are newer versions.

Logs to syslog, and optionally, sends SNMP traps. With all the various distributions, it is difficult to come up with a set of bulletproof universal instructions for making such a switch, so we recommend that you simply continue to use cciss in such instances. Worked fine, needs bnx2 firmware.
