HP Drivers for RedHat Enterprise 3 - Proliant

Can someone please help..

Does anyone know an ETA of the Proliant Support Pack for RedHat Enterprise Linux 3 (ES) ..?

I have a DL380 G3 , and I do not want to put RedHat 3 on it till I can get the HP authorised drivers for the machine.

All I see at the moment is 2.1 , and it was said that support would be available from Dec. 2003.

HELP ..

Its only two weeks into January, but contacting your HP rep or making a software support call is the way to go.

That puts pressure on someone to work on the issue.

The default drivers from RedHat AS 3 should work fine on your hardware. There is very little difference from the drivers from 2.1 to 3.0, if any..

We have 11 Compaq servers running AS 2.1 and dont use any of the Compaq drivers except for the Insight Manager agents..

If you look at the certfication matrix here http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/servers/linux/hpLinuxcert.html you will notice that the servers have not been certified yet. All the servers are supposed to be certified first quarter of 2004. We are just waiting for the testing of all the management agents and drivers to finish.

Re: HP Drivers for RedHat Enterprise 3 - Proliant

We notice that there has not been a working driver released for the 29160/39160 SCSI cards (i.e., Ultra3 driver) for use with tape devices. We came up with a "fix"...

Under your \kernel\drivers\scsi directory

copy aic7xxx_old to \kernal\drivers\scsi\aic7xxx

move \kernel\drivers\scsi\aic7xxx\aic79xx ..\

move \kernel\drivers\scsi\aic7xxx\aic7xxx ..\

any other aic7??? series driver needs to be moved out of the aic diectory or Kudzu with try to load the most current driver. (bad kudzu karma)

modify \etc\modules.conf

find the entry for aic7xxx (or similar) and rename to aic7xxx_old

mkinitrd -f (recreate the initial ramdisk)

modprobe aic7xxx_old

Now, if you see your device... all is well and you need to REBOOT!

Bueno!
Enjoy!
