Will RHEL 7.5 ever be supported for gen8 ?

Hello,

I have opened a thread a long time ago here: https://community.hpe.com/t5/ProLiant-Servers-Netservers/Drivers-for-B120i-for-RHEL-7-5/td-p/7007644

Maybe I'll be more lucky asking here?

Could someone tell me if there ever will be a kmod-hpvsa-xxx.rhel7u5.x86_64.rpm package, or is 7.4 the last supported release of RHEL for the Gen8 servers?

Thank you!

HI @SanjeevGoyal,

Thank you but all the link you provided say RHEL 7 is supported for the Microserver Gen8, the SPP OS Guide even says 7.5 is supported, yet you link the driver for 7.4 and there is no B120i driver available for 7.5.

Anyone who wants to do a fresh installation of RHEL on the Microserver Gen8 since 7.5 was release (April?) just cannot do so because the kernel will panic thanks to the driver for the b120i not being up-to-date. The only solution is to use the b120i in AHCI mode, which does not work for everybody.

Yes, Sorry, meant to post earlier this morning.  I contacted the product group again late last week asking about driver status.

Thanks @Jimmy Vance.

I installed the rpm and it worked. I could upgrade the server to 7.5.
