CentOSv.4 installation on a Dell Poweredge 2950

Post by ashley100 » 2007/12/18 07:39:33

Hi and thanks for reading my first post.

I'll get to the point!

I'm about to install CentOS v4 on our office server, a Dell Poweredge 2950 that we recently purchased. The HDs are being ordered but I'm worried about getting the correct disks that are fully compatible with the CentOS v4 install.

Spec:

Dual Core Intel® Xeon® 5110, 4MB Cache, 1.60GHz, 1066MHz FSB
8GB 667MHZ FBD 8X1GB -2R RAM
SAS 6/iR Integrated Controller Card for SATA and SAS Hard Drives, x4 Backplane (RAID 0,1 support)
750GB, SATA, 3.5-inch, 7200 rpm Hard Drive(hot plug)


Will CentOS v4 work with this hardware configuration? The server will be used for uploading video content to a website.

I have read some posts through this forum with users having a little difficulty on some setups, so I just want to look ahead before it's too late!

Thanks for anyone's help on this. :-)

Ashley

Those machines usually run without problems.

Also you have the driver on Dell web site. In case it is not already included.

I'm using a program that demands CentOS 4.2, unfortunately, it doesn't provide driver for the perc 6/i raid controller, which rendered my raid hdd arrays undetectable during installation...

i've tried many drivers downloaded from the web, but they seems not working.

i wonder if anyone knows the solution.

thx...
