X tarballs Last updated November 01, , latest version is 3. The cciss driver must be informed that changes to the SCSI bus have been made. Auto-suggest helps you quickly narrow down your search results by suggesting possible matches as you type. The system would panic when deleting many logical volumes at one time. Mkinitrd has changed on rhel5u1 and higher systems.

All forum topics Previous Topic Next Topic. Ccids following list of controllers are supported by cciss on distributions based on kernels before 2. 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 reports any status changes, like failing disks, to the syslog and optionally to a remote host using SNMP traps.

The function prints a message then retries ciss command that returned with a unit attention.

SCSI error handling for tape drives and medium changers The Linux SCSI midlayer provides an error-handling protocol that is initiated whenever a SCSI command fails to complete within a certain amount of time which can vary ccis on the command.

Rory 14k 53 Fixed race condition that could show up during driver init.

And then look at the output of the hpssacli ctrl all show config command: It can no longer find the rhel5 base media cciss driver following an uninstalled of an HP cciss rpm. Fri Jul 13 Files Device nodes The device naming scheme is as follows: If you’re using identical physical disks you won’t notice any “difference” as smartmontools is focused on monitoring physical disks and not controllers or logical disks you can and will not find any information of those in smartmontools.



You can use these if you have a supported distribution running a supported kernel. David, actually it does support that. Note ph that most tape drives will not oblige in aborting commands, and sometimes it appears they will not even obey a reset command, though in most circumstances they will. Last updated March 4, latest version is 4.

Fixed sysfs link issue. A new Smart Array driver called “hpsa” has been accepted into the main line linux kernel as of Dec 18,in linux This is because at driver init time, the SCSI core may not yet be initialized because the driver is a block driver and attempting to register it with the SCSI core in such a case would cause a hang.

The binary RPMs created by the source RPMs here do not do these things, they only build the driver cicss and initrd image. Fixed wrong usage of a pointer for sysfs symlink.

Debian package only builds binary cciss module. It neither modifies bootloader grub or lilo. 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.

But since there’s a raid controller, all report the same serial number. The driver will output messages indicating which devices have been added or removed and the controller, bus, target and lun used to address each device.

Use these for systems using 2.

The driver then notifies the SCSI midlayer of these changes. Sign up using Facebook. The opinions expressed above are the personal opinions of the authors, not of Hewlett Packard Enterprise. Additionally, note that the driver will not engage the SCSI core at init time. I have a ML G2 with a array controller.

Cleaned up code for adding and removing logical volumes. My guess would be that the RAID controller has abstracted the individual disks, so it doesn’t matter which logical disk you try linuc get from the controller, it see’s the count the same.

My guess is that ‘smartctl’ doesn’t know how to properly talk through a hardware RAID controller.
