BTW, if you happen across a 2. The function prints a message then retries the command that returned with a unit attention. Change to this directory, and execute: Fixed wrong usage of a pointer for sysfs symlink. You can use these if you have a supported distribution running a supported kernel.

In this case, it is just a text file, documentation, meant for human consumption. System will beep before bootloader starts however. Fixed issue where controllers that libux no configured volumes did not show up in the OS. Fixed “out of memory” error introduced in the 2. See also the kernel documentation for further explanation.

Ubuntu Manpage: cciss – HP Smart Array block driver

The cciss driver participates in this protocol to some extent. You’ll find out soon enough if you do try to use it.

In the kernel documentation linux-source Worked fine, needs bnx2 firmware. To enable this feature of hpsa, the module parameter hpsa. It reports any status changes, like failing disks, to the syslog and optionally to a remote host using SNMP traps. To avoid this, you can modify your install image to include the needed firmware.

Information on official HP support offerings for Debian can be found on http: Additionally, note that the driver will not engage the SCSI core at init time.


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 d200i to claim these devices.

Fix firmware version not being printed in procfs.

With using a kernel version 2. And also lsscsi does only show the DVD drive, but no disks. If you’ve been using cciss already on these controllers, it is pinux recommended that you attempt to upgrade your running system to switch from cciss to hpsa unless you have a very good reason to do so and know what you are doing.

Fixed bug where deleting logical volumes could hang the system. It says liinux unable to detect it or it would just hang on that page. Mkinitrd has changed on rhel5u1 and higher systems. Hosting provided by Metropolitan Area Network Darmstadt. Adding “nomodeset” to kernel command line works around the issue in Stretch.

No longer spins up idle spare drives. This is because at driver init time,the SCSI core may not yet be initialized because the driver is a block driver and attempting to register it with the SCSI core in such a case would cause a hang. If the command cannot be aborted and the device cannot be reset, the device will linxu set offline.

HP ProLiant Servers

In the case of kernels with cciss and linuxx 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 lnux will be.


The following list of controllers are supported by cciss on distributions based on kernels before 2. Last updated March 4, latest version is 4. 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! Here’s a sample report e200o arrayprobe 2. 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 e200j driver is restricted by this option to the following controllers: I would suggest disabling hardware raid and setting up software raid or no raid at all until the driver makes its way on the Linux Kernel, if it ever does.

Worked fine, needs firmware ; Xen 4. Post-install warnings about missing tg3 firmware in update-initramfs: Cleaned up code for adding and removing logical volumes.
