What Linux distro on HP LP1000R 1.13 with HP NetRaid1m card???

Hi all,

I've recently purchased a refurbished HP LP1000R server with an internal HP NetRaid 1m raid card.

The server is equipped with 3 18,2 Gb disks that i've configured to do Raid 5.

Now, whatever Linux distribution that i've tried, neither of them does recognize the NetRaid 1m card.

I've tried with Fedora / CentOS / Ubuntu (all server editions) but there just doesn't seem to be a valid driver for these OS-es.

I'm sure there's people around that have a running Linux installation on a LP1000R with this NetRaid 1m card. How did you make it work? What distribution did you use?

Any help is more then welcome!!!!

Hi Mark,

I had the same problem until I installed FreeBSD. It works from version 3 to 6
(Not tested on earlier versions).

I also tried Fedora Core 3, 4 and 5 but no success.

So, you could install FreeBSD if you'd like...

Good luck!
