No disk array detection during SLES 8.1 install

hello everybody

i have quiet a heavy problem here

i'm setting up a HP DL 380 G4 server with SuSE SLES 8.1. I first set up a disk array (HP SMart Array 6i) using ORCA (two disks with RAID 1). I then try to install SuSE but at the very beginning when it comes to probe the hardware YAST stops saying : "No hard disk were found : check your hardware).

I did the same on previous servers with Smart Array 5i and never encountered the problem.

Does SLES 8.1 have kernel support for Smart Array 6i by default ?
If not how can i somehow fix this ?

Any help is greatly appreciated

thanks a lot

Hi,

I seem to remember having to boot from a Service pack CD to get SUSE to recognise a 6th generation smart controller.
See this thread for more details:
