DL380 G3 Dual Processors & Suse


I've recently purchased 3 DL380 G3s with Dual 2.8 processors.

I am attempting to load Suse Linux 8.1 - minumum install.

All goes well with the install. On the boot, when the startup gets to the CCISS driver (Raid Driver), the system hangs on 'Checking Partition'. If I start the server with NOSMP as a parameter, everything starts ok.

Does anyone have any suggestions about the problem, or the best place to ask ?

Re: DL380 G3 Dual Processors & Suse

If you bought Suse Linux 8.1, you will have a support key in your package. You can use this to access the free installation support - but as far as I know, it only covers "standard" PC hardware, i.e. no installation on a server with RAID controller etc. For such cases, you might try the advanced (incident based) support:

A problem might be that the DL380G3 is not (yet) a supported/certified hardware for SUSE Linux.
