To get it working for me, I installed the kernel from experimental 2. Worked fine, needs bnx2 firmware. Additionally, note that the driver will not engage the SCSI core at init time. You can try the Ubuntu repository, something like: In this case, it is just a text file, documentation, meant for human consumption. Use these for systems using 2. See also the kernel documentation for further explanation.

HP ProLiant Servers

After installation and boot from internal storage some fixes: System will beep before bootloader starts however. Worked fine, needs bnx2 firmware. BTW, if you happen across a 2.

If necessary, deb package will e2000i kernel as well. It neither modifies bootloader grub or lilo. The earlier fix would be called anytime something changed.

Arrayprobe which may need modifications to work with the hpsa driver. The server has also a 2-port Pi Smart Array controller integrated on the mainboard.

NIC 3,4 worked fine. There are newer versions. To install, download Debian cciss source package. To avoid this, you can modify your install image to include the needed firmware. Last updated March 4, latest version is 4.

If you use the installer on the link it should up fine except for ho was mentioned on the installation report. The current list of controllers that are supported by cciss only: Last updated Tue Oct 16, latest version is 2.


See post 3 in this thread at linuxquestions which is a rough howto for CentOS. Alternatively, you can obtain non-official CD images with external firmware loading enabled; see Firmware. Fixed bug where deleting logical volumes could hang the system. Additionally, note that the driver will not engage the SCSI core at init time. If the command cannot be aborted and the device cannot be reset, the device will be set offline.

This network controller is supported by the bnx2 driver, but requires external non-free firmware. HP Repository HP provides an apt repository for the? Oinux time to time there may be instances in which hardware or driver features are not supported by the cciss driver which comes with your distribution or kernel, because it is too old, or the hardware is too new, e020i.

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! Debian package only builds binary cciss module.

These won’t work with very old kernels such as the 2. See the “st” man page for more details. 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. You can think of this as a daemonized version of arrayprobe, in that both of them detect failures in the same way by looking at “events” reported by the controller, cpqarrayd in real time, arrayprobe after the fact.


I would suggest disabling hardware raid and setting up software raid or no raid at all until the driver makes its way np the Linux Kernel, if it ever does. The intent with newer kernels 2. Most likely, you do not need these, as the cciss driver has been in the Linux kernel for a very long time, and most distributions will already have a cciss e200k which will work for you as is.

This new driver will support new Smart Array products going forward, and the cciss driver will eventually be deprecated. It can no longer find the rhel5 base media cciss driver following an uninstalled of an HP cciss rpm.

Here’s a sample report from arrayprobe 2.
