Portable Devices

Note also that if no sequential access devices or medium changers are. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author’s experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. Hot plug support for SCSI tape drives. Note also that most tape drives will not oblige in aborting commands, and sometimes it appears they will not even obey a reset command, though in most circumstances they will. I wonder why people tinker so much with things they don’t understand?

So i decided to make this writeup on the problem and the solution, for others that stumble on the same problem. Once the SCSI core is engaged by the driver, it cannot be disengaged. As an afterthought – the linuxquestions “solution” really isn’t, since I can’t even see any devices when booting from a USB stick using A system may have many adapters, but.

May 16th, 9. If you really want cciss on RHEL7 checkout the elrepo directory. This option prevents the cciss driver from attempting to drive any controllers that the hpsa 4 driver is capable of controlling, which is to say, the cciss driver is restricted by this option to the following controllers: This patch will get called only once for each ccias.


Additionally, note that the driver will ksrnel engage the SCSI core at init time. This should not affect. This obsolete driver was removed from the kernel in version 4. See the “st” man page for more details. I guess kernel 3. For example, disk d2 will have minor number 32, and its.

CONFIG_BLK_CPQ_CISS_DA: Compaq Smart Array 5xxx support

To enable the monitor threads, the compile time option must be enabled. One would have expected a more professional approach from the kernel team than just “meh, it probably works”. So far, I haven’t had any ekrnel duplicating this problem. To continue using the CCISS driver as before, the boot loader must be updated with a new kernel command line parameter.

For multipath configurations acheived via a higher level driver, such. Once you have this, you need to create device nodes in. Then the system can be booted to the previous kernel kernfl by selecting it in the GRUB2 boot menu. This is simply because making the switch is somewhat complex and it is easy to make a mistake or forget something and get your system into an unbootable state.

[SOLVED] OpenSUSE update kernel to version and HP Smartarray raid = boot fail

Then you can mount the devices and create partitions. SCSI tape drive and medium changer support. Is the module in some other package which needs to be installed? ccis


After upgrading a server that was also running See these search results from ccies. There may be other software designed to work with cciss e.

This feature has been removed, as any Smart Arrays not known to cciss are now presumed to be claimed by the hpsa driver. You also need to make nodes for these partitions.

Mkinitrd has changed on rhel5u1 and higher systems.

Note also that if no sequential access devices or medium changers are detected, the SCSI core will not be engaged by the action of the above script. It can no longer find the rhel5 base media cciss driver following an uninstalled of an HP cciss rpm. I can’t comment on this ccixs 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.

Currently the device setup. Fixed issue where ACU would hang after several operations.
