Re: Centos 5.3 on ML150

hi,

the raid configuration is on the smartstart CD.

ok for raid 5 configuration you need to have minimum 3 hdd, so 2 HDD are not enough, if you have 3 or more you will be able to make the raid5, some people, are configuring 4 drives for raid5 but the raid is build only from 3 drives and 1 drive is such a SPARE disk.

it is possible to download it from this location :

= the smartstart cd should help you with the configuration, and deployment.

but you didnt mention the HP Documentation for RHEL5 installation on Proliant ML150 G5. can i get the link for that now coz i want to study that to do a proper installation.

= try this link :
http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/servers/linux/documentation.html#linxlit

= my opinion is that, the RHEL/CenOS should be able to install the os on Proliant Servers. I don't have a documentation or howto install linux on proliant sevrers.
