Hi,

The built in SmartArray 6i controller isn't recognised by early versions of RedHat 3 AS (base release and Update 1. Not sure about Update 2)

You'll need to download the ISOs for either Update 3 or Update 4 from RedHat's site, or provide an update driver floppy during the install - assuming your server has got a floppy drive...

Cheers,

Rob

Re: proliant 360 g4 and red hat server 3 as

Hi

This issue has been discussed in this forum before, the reason the OS cannot see the harddrive is becuase thereis no in-built driver for the smart array on the OS cd.
You need to download the Smart array driver ,you can check here
http://h18023.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/download/10770.html
the same place has the driver floppy creating instructions.
Once the floppy is created you need to provide the driver during the start of the install, that would prompt to insert the driver on the floppy drive,once it reads that then the disks will start to show up.
IMPORTANT:The Array needs to be created before the OS install is started.
Only use the Kernel release version mentioned in the smart array driver page since it would have been tested only with that.

Hope this helps.

Re: proliant 360 g4 and red hat server 3 as

ok the only way for install this on proliant is to take the update os from red hat

impossible with the HGN's way don't loose ur time to try to download and install somes ipotetik driver for smart array only one work fine and it's for 2.1 not 3

i repeat the only way to install red hat as es or ws enterprise 3 on proliant 360 g4 is to check the update pack cds ( version 3 or 4 )

for found this cds (4) u must have an customer account with red hat and he'll give a link for donwload

perhaps this can help
