DL 185 Raid Controller P400 Sles 10 Installation Problem.

Hello,

I am trying to install SLES 10 onto a DL 185 storage blade.

The disk array consists of 5 x 1TB disks, the array is configured as a RAID 5 array.

When i try and install SLES, sles cannot find the raid array. I cannot find any drivers that will work pre install.

I tried giving SLES the cpq_cciss3.6.20-22.sles10.x86_64.rpm driver before the installation on the splash screen, but it reported it coudn't find this on my driver cd (which only contained the driver) I assume this meant it coudn't read RPM files at this point.

Any help at this point would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
