Redhat 9 NFS install Compaq DL 360 G3

We try to install Redhat 9 (with NFS install) on a DL360 G3. We've got a message "install exited abnormally received signal 11" just after setting ip and mount point of the NFS server. The FTP install works correctly...

I had it too (when I used cdroms to install -it worked fine, but when tried to install from NFS share -where I extracted the same ISOs it failed at the same point- I suggest you to redownload the ISOs

But it works correctly with another server, so i think it's not a problem from iso...
(The install doesn't work with local Cd-rom, the server doesn't detect cd-rom when we have to choose the packages...)

try specifying IP address instead of getting one from DHCP while starting the netowrk while installing

Re: Redhat 9 NFS install Compaq DL 360 G3

right now I remained with a very similar problem a have several versions installations
on my RedHat NFS server and all of them work fine , except the RH9 which fail at the same point exactly.
Like I said -I had it before and redownloading the ISO's helped, I'm going to try to recopy the ISO's to the same shared point and to update you with the results-stay tuned....

Re: Redhat 9 NFS install Compaq DL 360 G3

thx a lot...
Just of case of, we have an error on the boot :
hda: set_drive_speed_status: status=0x51 { Error }
hda: set_drive_speed_status: error=0x04

Perhaps it can explain the issue with cdrom install.... but not with the NFS...

Re: Redhat 9 NFS install Compaq DL 360 G3

There are some disk utilities you may need to run crom Compaq/HP to prepare the disks for installion.

Thats based on the last error message, not the first, which you seem to have overcome.

The obvious things should be looked at, such as cable snugness and scsi termination. I've seent he specifications on this box and it is hardware certified.

100% success. Perhaps some file wasn't copied correctly. This is the second time it happend to me , so I guess there will be no doubt for me in the future regarding similar problems....

However I don't get hda errors, and I would try replacing this IDE hard drive if I were you...
