HP LH3 and Suse 9.1

I downloaded the latest drivers for the LH3 megaraid system that Xyko had suggested. I my problem is I don't understand how to make the floppy disk to install the drivers to Suse?

If anyone could help that would be great.

Thanks

Mike,

On what system do you want to create floppy ? and on the site where ou downloaded this driver from does it not explain how to do this ?

(maybe the explaination/doc/README is within the file(s) you have downloaded).

tell us more will try and help.

You should be able to boot and install Suse 9.1 off of the cd-rom.

If this LH3 is attached to a a RAID array, then you'll need to boot off the cd that comes with the server and set up the disk prior to doing the Suse install.

For every HP server, that raid setup cd is downloadable.

Huc,

The download does come with a readme, however when I try to make the disk it doesn't seem to write it to disk. Here is the link to that page for the Megaraid drivers, but like I said I don't know how to make the disk. By the way I have Suse 9.1.

Thanks,

Steve,

I have the Megaraid setup from the last install of RedHat AS Server. So the partition is already setup. Are you saying the drivers would be on this CD?

Hi
i'm near the solution :)
Try to follow theese steps:
Boot from Cd
Choose manual installation
Go to Load Kernel Module--->SCSI Module
and select megaraid module (the megaraid is written on the right part)
Go back and select--Start instalaltion

This should work.

After that i've encountered other problems:
1) After the installation, on the first reboot, the system didn't recognize the SCSI disk anymore..so you need:
Boot from Cd
Choose manual installation
Go to Load Kernel Module--->SCSI Module
and select megaraid module (the megaraid is written on the right part)
Go back to Start Installation and select
Start rescue system (or something like that)
Login as root...
modifiy the /etc/fstab (vi /etc/fstab) and put your entry for the HD /dev/sda3 /suse reiserfs defaults 1 1
and save.
create the /suse (or a name as you prefer) and mount here the HD.. mount /dev/sda3
make a chroot..chroot /suse..
Now mount any other partition if not on the sda3, like /boot etc etc...
Now Take a look at /etc/sysconfig/kernel
and check that:
INITRD_MODULES="megaraid reiserfs".
If megaraid is not present..please add it.
After that save the file and make mk_initrd
and reboot..it should be ok.
Tha real problem is if you lunch Yast Online Update and upgrade the kernel...the problem is the same...but in this case i wasn't able to solve it ..with the procedure below...i'n still on it.
