hpacucli broken on E200i


Testing hpacucli-7.85-18 with RHEL4u5 i386 on a DL360 G5 with onboard E200i SAS controller, it appears that the serialnumber= syntax is broken.

[root@lthlha98 ~]# uname -r
2.6.9-55.0.2.ELsmp
[root@lthlha98 ~]# hpacucli ctrl all shot

Error: Invalid command. Type "help" for a list of valid commands.

I've tried earlier versions of hpacucli (namely 7.70-12 and 7.80-6) but these both suffer the same problem.

I've separately managed to verify that 7.70-12 works OK with a P400 so I've speculating this is an issue with the cciss driver or the E200i itself.

Is this a known issue (and if so, is there is fix in the pipeline)?
