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. Note also that if no sequential access devices or medium changers are. Where i could see that none of the disk was detected.

The driver then notifies the SCSI midlayer of these changes. Note also that if no sequential access devices or medium changers are. Linux Power User Bundle.

BTW, if you happen across a 2. With all the various distributions, it is difficult to come up with a set of bulletproof universal instructions for making such a switch, so we recommend that you simply continue to use cciss in such instances. This new driver will support new Smart Array products going forward, and the cciss driver will eventually be deprecated.
I wonder why people tinker so much with things they don’t understand?
Originally the driver only supports 8 controllers in the system. 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.

The no-operation command must complete. Bookmarks Bookmarks Digg del.
At least test the changes before releasing them to the community. The driver will output messages indicating what.
