Hi,

Do you boot your server with smartstart CD?

I never think of the future. It comes soon enough.

Re: no storage controller found on DL580

Debian and Ubuntu are not supported on this server. HP has not released drivers for the integrated SmartArray controller.
There's only drivers for RedHat, Suse and Caldera OpenLinux.

Re: no storage controller found on DL580

Depending on which controller is in the system you need either the cciss or the cpqarray driver. I'm pretty sure most recent versions of Debian and I know recent Ubuntu versions have the cciss driver. Since it's not getting loaded I'd suspect you need the cpqarray driver. Both are open source drivers so you can get the code and compile the driver you need. Checkout opensource.hp.com. Find the link to the HP- sponsored open source projects and you will see links for both cciss and cpqarray.

Re: no storage controller found on DL580

I tried new versions of Debian and Ubunto and nothink. I look for the drivers in opensource.hp.com - but it's same result.

do you know same free diferent OS, please?
