Re: Drivers for B120i for RHEL 7.5

Is there a way to supply the RPM package to the installer to le recognize the b120i controller?

I've tried providing the installer with

linux modprobe.blacklist=ahci inst.dd

and then searching for the RPM in USB drive named (for convention) OEMDRV.

It seems that the installer only search fo *.iso files... I've tried to rename the rpm to iso but obviously it doesn't work.

Any help will be appreciated! I'm getting crazy!


The dd image for 7.5 has not been released yet, only the kmod-hpvsa rpm file to update an installed system.  I've made an inquiry to the product team.  To get you going right now, you can install 7.4 then upgrade to 7.5

dd image for 7.4 is here: https://support.hpe.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?sp4ts.oid=5293150&swItemId=MTX_a5fb52d146a24af58ce84731c8&swEnvOid=4184

Re: Drivers for B120i for RHEL 7.5

Also this driver is not available in http://downloads.linux.hpe.com/SDR/repo/spp-gen8/rhel/7/x86_64/current/

Making a DD-image shouldn't be too hard manually, it has simple structure.

I wonder, do we have a chance of getting this driver for RHEL 8? It should be released very soon.

The SDR contains the SPP content. This driver was released out of cycle and generally will not appear until the next SPP release cycle. I'll se if it can be pushed manually

And just 2 weeks after that RedHat released 7.6 :) Can we expect 7.6 update?
