Re: Installation SLES 8 on HP Proliant DL380 G3

1) You must have the right version of smart array software.
2) Use that software to create a boot cd and configure the array.
3) Choose a distribution of Linux specifically supported by the Smart Array.
4) Install that Linux Distribution.

Failure to follow any of these steps will result in the inability to detect any or all of the available disk.
