Default Dell Poweredge 1950

I am currently using a PE 1950 using PERC 5i, never had an issue (using 8.04 LTS x86 server) .

*

You may want to put out a RFI using just the PERC 6iR instead of the 1950 portion.

I did some tests a while ago with a PE 1950 from a customer, and I had no problem what so ever using Ubuntu in the last LTS (8.04), server edition - most of the issues regarding this had been solved back in 6.06 and 6.10

I am not totally sure I had it with a PERC SAS 6iR or a 5/i,*I am pretty sure it should be safe.



*



Have in mind, if you are not sure, its always better to do some somrt of trials before you put it into production.*



*



Take your time, install the OS, try the hardware monitors and sensors (munin would be a good place to start), make sure you are able to brake mirrors or the other redundances work as expected.



*



Read the log files.



*



Install your aplications and services, make sure they respond accordingly, keep reading the log files, try to brake it at least once again and make sure it behave as expected, and that you have control over
it (not the other way arround)

Hi,



I have Dell Poweredge 1950 server with SAS 6iR intergrated RAID controller.



Is there anyone else out there that is running Ubuntu on a box using

SAS 6iR RAID controller or does anyone know of any drivers that will

work with Ubuntu Linux 8.04 Server (Hardy)



Please Suggest/Guide.



Thanks and Regards



Kaushal

Which kernel are you using for pxe install? The one from 8.04 or the one
from 8.04.4? First one won't work cause it can't download non existing
modules and you won't get module for your sata/sas controller.

Update your PXE environment.

Hi Ante

Forgot to mention you, the CD Install having 8.04 image worked
perfectly fine. My PXE environment too have 8.04 Image.
So curious to know why it did not worked in pxe/net install whereas it
worked using CD install.

Any suggestions.

Thanks and Regards,

Kaushal

Cause you are booting old kernel for which there are no modules on the
Net any more. Just refresh your /var/lib/tftpboot:

lftp -c "open
http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/hardy/main/installer-amd64/current/images/netboot/;
mirror"

Hi Ante,

while installing Ubuntu 8.04 amd64 Bit server using CD Image, does it
fetch the kernel image from the internet ?
am i understanding it correctly ?
the reason why i am asking is the CD install works perfectly fine
while the pxe install fails since netboot kernel image is obsolete

Help me understand.

Thanks and Regards,

Kaushal
