ML530 & Redhat ES 2.1

Hi,
We've got a ML530 w/SA6400. I can't seem to get RH to "see" any disks. I've got the cpq_cciss-2.4.48-3.rh21.i386.dd and in "expert" mode it loads, but once at the "partitioning" screen it stops with something close to " no vaild disks to use..." (any option does this, fdisk, druid, auto).

I've erased NVRAM, et al. I've disabled the on-board SCSI devices.

I'm stuck, it seems like the HW isn't showing to the OS.

Thanks for any tips,

Yeah, was there. And anything relevant assumes you have RH installed. I have no other disks, besides the SA6400 to install to.

Re: ML530 & Redhat ES 2.1

Are you using the intial release of RHEL 2.1 ES? If so, you have to install with the following dd:

http://h18023.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/download/17784.html

The cpq_cciss-2.4.48-3.rh21.i386.dd driver disk only supports QU2 media and above.
