Problem installing CENTOS on Poweredge 2950

Post by manjiri » 2008/03/21 15:57:31

I am trying to install customised version of CENTOS Linux 4.5 on
one of our new Dell Poweredge 2950 . However I am having problem installing
drivers for Dell PERC 6/i Raid Controller. I have downloaded driver for Red
hat Linux from Dell website . but they do not seems to help . As a result I can not access the hardrives.
Any ideas ?

Thanks

Did you follow the instructions
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=ca&l=en&s=gen&releaseid=R165754&SystemID=PWE_2950&servicetag=&os=LIN4&osl=en&deviceid=13856&devlib=0&typecnt=0&vercnt=1&catid=-1&impid=-1&formatcnt=2&libid=46&fileid=223646

Update FW and use only SATA II or SAS drives.
