Or does anyone know where to locate the SRC RPM so I can build a specific driver for an updated kernel ? Hi, I'm trying to install Redhat EL 4 (QU 3 or QU4) on an x306m with ServeRAID 8e (Adaptec HostRAID) with 2 x 80g HDDs configured as RAID 1.

From the articles in this forum I've also come across the same issue where Redhat by default (without loading any drivers) sees 2 hard drives, ie does not recognise the RAID This will rule out the raid card, on the older 4mx raid controllers the backup batteries fail and the raid configuration is lost on reboots cannot see logical drive and alike.

You can get a copy from IBM. Trying to do a quick fix by copying the kernel module into the new kernel directory and rebuild initrd doesn't fix the problem either. Then boot back into Windows and try installing again.   Other things to do, update the BIOS RAID to the latest firmware from IBM. 0 Sonora OP Best Glad you got it sorted. 0 This discussion has been inactive for over a year.

Dont forget even if the server is the same model lets say an XSeries 345 the type numbers of the server may be different, so there is a good change there Hope this helps  0 Poblano OP Helpful Post Nathan625 Jan 4, 2012 at 10:09 UTC Dash:  Going to boot a Server 2008 R2 disc and see what it Oops, something's wrong below.

Hope this helps   Exactly, this is why I suggest confirming the cards were really the same.

Assuming Win 2008 seems them, you could install it completely and see what drivers it loads (assuming that the IBM website doesn't show you something different).  Then try to locate those It seems a bit limited that you can't install any critical kernel updates without breaking the RAID driver. You may get a better answer to your question by starting a new discussion. Doing a reinstall, then kernel updates, then RPM install (before rebooting) fails as the RPM says there are no specific modules for the updated kernel.

Also, as a test, you could start the setup of Windows Server 2008 (r2) and see if the array is seen. Email Reset Password Cancel Need to recover your Spiceworks IT Desktop password?
