IBM SERVERAID-7E FOR REDHAT LINUX DRIVER

There is little documentation on the layout of a driver disk, took me time and a lot of search to build one. The driver RPM must provide kernel-modules in order to tell the installer the minimum support kernel version for the module:. If it comes with the machine, of course people wanna use it instead of buying another raid card. Therefore, I install the CentOS3. Now that you have generated your driver disk, read how to perform a driver update during installation on RHEL documentation and there you have, your driver ready to be loaded. I check the IBM site and the cds come with the x which only provide the driver for rhel3.

Re: Hardware RAID RHEL4 IBM X

I wish you good luck and if you have any progress please share with everybody: A driver disk is needed because as I was packaging a SCSI controller driver that manage the disk I will install to, the installer need to load the driver at startup. Robert Marcano’s Blog Posts. Actually when I put in the floppy disk while installing the CentOS, the system can load the Adaptec A Raid driver from disk ibk when I specify to use it, the system does not recognize this hardware very strange.

What people usually do is: Restrict Certificate Authority to a Domain Next: I ssrveraid-7e the ips. The easiest way to build a new servdraid-7e module package is to download the SRPM of a kernel module package that is somewhat related to the one you are building, for example same device type like a NIC or a SCSI controller. ELRepo packages are built that way, in contrast with akmod method that need compiler tools in order to rebuild the driver module everytime the kernel is updated.

RHEL and CentOS kernels and those from many other enterprise targeted distributions are API and ABI compatible for the entire lifespan of them, so building a driver for a kernel release can be reused for ibj kernel updates.

The best is maybe to give it a try, but i’ve no such machine available to simulate a test Use that SRPM as the base for your package. If it comes with the machine, of course people wanna use it instead of buying another raid card. Therefore, I install the CentOS3. Now that you have generated your driver disk, read how to perform a driver update during installation on RHEL documentation and there you have, your driver ready to be loaded. There is little documentation on the layout of a driver disk, took me time and a lot of search to build one.

There is an external repository, ELRepothat packages external drivers and drivers Red Hat disables. Board index All times are UTC.

Finally I went to the Adaptec website download the old driver for redhat 9. It seems there is a slight difference between CentOS3.

segveraid-7e Anyway, you have to understand that such Adaptec Raid solutions are Software solutions and not real hardware ones like using the standard ips module I check the all files in the driver disk except the C object file but there is no clue.

If any of you know where I can tweak it, please share with us.

Hope any expertist can share some tips. So far, I only made it work on RedHat 9. Thank you for any help. The driver RPM must provide kernel-modules in order to tell the installer the minimum support kernel version for the module:.

Recently I had the need to install CentOS 7 on an old machine to be used as a simple firewall. I check the IBM site and the cds come with the x which only provide the driver for rhel3.

Both of them failed.

I cant figure it out and I even go down to check the driver floppy disk to see if there is something I can tweak but no luck. Then, I try to install CentOS3.

About your solution2, there is a little difficulty because the Serveradi-7e is on-board therefore it is very difficult to convience my friend to buy another PCI Raid card.
