Use these for 2. This obsolete driver was removed from the kernel in version 4. Join Date Dec Beans 4. Or, better yet, the driver code changed back to the original, correct state. Then you can mount the devices and create partitions.

[server] CCISS kernel mod missing from USLTS rendering server unbootable after upgrade

Mkinitrd has changed on rhel5u1 and higher systems. Between Linux kernel versions 3. Having a problem logging in? Last updated Tue Oct 16, latest version is 2.

CONFIG_BLK_CPQ_CISS_DA: Compaq Smart Array 5xxx support

These won’t work with very old kernels such as the 2. So with the newer kernel, and the newer driver, the system stalls when trying to mount the root partition, since the HPSA driver takes precedense but will not correctly present the drives to the system. 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 depending on the command.


For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration.

In this way, it is possible to run monitoring threads only for those. The cciss driver must be informed that changes to the SCSI bus have been made. Then you can mount the devices and create partitions.

Fixed a panic that could arise during an insmod and rmmod of the cciss driver. Logs to syslog, and optionally, sends SNMP traps.

Once the SCSI core is engaged by the driver, it cannot be disengaged. The driver can now support up to 32 controllers in the system. You’ll find out soon enough if you do try to use it. This program is licensed under the Gnu GPL v.

Note also that if no sequential access devices or medium changers are detected, the SCSI core will not be engaged by the action of the above script. Note, the change will not take effect until the previous polling. Last updated March 4, latest version is 3. May 6th, 6.


To build the source tarballs: From time to time there may be instances in which hardware or driver features are not supported by the cciss driver which comes with your distribution or kernel, because it is too old, or the hardware is too new, etc. Change to this directory, and execute: Additionally, note that the driver will not engage the SCSI core at init time.

This should not affect. Are you new to LinuxQuestions.

Visit the following links: ONLY sequential access devices and medium changers are presented. I guess kernel 3. Later, after checking this one out a cdiss more, I’ll edit this to reflect what I find.

The system would panic when deleting many logical volumes at one time. Support for “SOME” boards was added, including alledgedly.
