Don’t have to be a Ubuntu user either. This article was written in hp dl g5 and was written to solve related problems and solve problems that other users will encounter. It neither modifies bootloader grub or lilo. Comment 4 Peter Jones This new driver will support new Smart Array products going forward, and the cciss driver will eventually be deprecated. I really need to redump it. I have run into one problem though.

I also use the same model for testing purposes, but F29 does not support built-in graphics. I have found the problem but no solution. Fixed bug where deleting logical volumes could hang the system. With all the various distributions, it is difficult to come up with a set of bulletproof universal instructions for making such a switch, so tedora recommend that you simply continue to use cciss in such instances.

RPM resource kmod(cciss.ko)

You can think of this as a daemonized version of arrayprobe, in that both of them detect failures in the same way by looking at “events” reported by the controller, cpqarrayd in real time, arrayprobe after the fact. It needs to be in F9 since you cannot install to HP smart array devices without this. There are newer versions. Upgrading from 25 to 26 is when the reliability came into question.


Getting the CCISS RAID controller to work on EL7 |

The following list of controllers are supported by cciss on distributions based on kernels before 2. I think it breaks there, I am debugging now and will report back very soon.

I am raising the severity of this because nearly all new HP proliant systems have cciss as the only storage and none will ccis able to install Fedora 9 until this is resolved. Or use the web-based chat client.

Getting the CCISS RAID controller to work on EL7

Please post a comment as a comment to your question, not as an answer. Dedora the case of kernels with cciss and hpsa drivers which do have overlapping sets of supported controllers, by default, cciss will claim these devices if it is loaded prior to hpsa which it normally will be.

I can’t comment on this much as I haven’t tried it, but from my so far very brief perusing of the code it appears to be alright at first glance, basically doing the expected things. Comment 5 Doug Chapman See these search results from hp.

I am not sure, but it seems that something in the new ccixs P controller firmware was needed for the Kernel to see the disks and the partitions. That is, there are some kernels which have overlapping sets of controllers supported by both hpsa and cciss.

Pick a working machine with F28 and compile RPMs there.


I executed and interactive boot and stepped through the the boot sequece. I am not sure if things are fully fixed, but I am at least running on the latest kernel.

Last updated Tue Oct 16, latest version is 2. To enable this feature of hpsa, the module parameter hpsa. Later, after checking this one out a bit more, I’ll edit this to reflect what I find. Fixed race condition that could show up during driver init. This site requires JavaScript to be enabled to function correctly, please enable it. Fixed a bug found by the L1 test suite.

# (Fedora Core 4 and cciss) – Munin

You asked when upgrades started being reliable. Can someone let me know how I should get this system to work reliably? This link has a bit more detail on the kmod: I really appreciate any and all help.

If you really want cciss on RHEL7 checkout the elrepo directory. Here’s the man page.

However, Fedora works well, so if you solve only graphics problems, you can use it normally. It neither modifies bootloader grub or lilo.
