SuSE 7.3 professional installation on LH3r

I'm trying to install Suse 7.3 on a LH3r netserver.
Where can I find the driver for the internal NetRaid controller?
Thanks.

I have not tried SuSE 7.3 on the LH3, but the driver for the RAID controller is megaraid.o
It is on the SuSE CD.

Hope this helps

Yes there is one, but brings an error while trying to load the module.
I'm talking about the emmbedded NetRaid

Re: SuSE 7.3 professional installation on LH3r

Mubedi was right. We use the Onboard RAID controller on an LH3 here with no issues. I've not tried using Suse however.

'megaraid.o'. If Suse7.3 is using a 2.4.x kernel, it is possible that it is incorrectly initilising the I2o driver before the MegaRAID driver which could possibly cause this. (This is the case with the RH7.2 install using 2.4.7)

I'm unsure if you can tell the Suse install to only use what you tell it however.

Thanks for your replies.

Yesterday I updated all bios and firmware in the server without any difference.
After, I even tried with RedHat 7.1 and again, the installation stops while trying to load the driver. (even with the HP provided drivers).
The only thing I have in mind now is to connect the boot devices to the internal SCSI and hope that it helps.

Hello,

For RedHat 7.1, you may try this one :

For SuSE 7.x, try this one :

Although it was designed for SuSE 7.0, somebody told me that it works with SuSE 7.3.

Good luck.

Re: SuSE 7.3 professional installation on LH3r

I had tried the HP drivers for RH but it didn't work either.

Next what I've tried is to hang the disk on the internal SCSCI (SCSI B). The same.

Even created a partition on one disk but didn't work either.

I'm just wondering what could I try next.
