If you’re already running cciss on these devices, and upgrade to a kernel containing the hpsa driver, you shouldn’t have to do anything, as cciss will continue to claim these devices. Now I’m torn between finding a solution to this problem cciss vs. Some development versions 2. May 6th, 3. Added a procfs interface so users can tell the driver to rescan our devices. Logs to syslog, and optionally, sends SNMP traps. It reports any status changes, like failing disks, to the syslog and optionally to a remote host using SNMP traps.

Cleaned up code for adding and removing logical volumes. The current list of controllers that are supported by cciss only: Fixed a panic that could arise during an insmod and rmmod of the cciss driver.

It reports any status changes, like failing disks, to the syslog and optionally to a remote host using SNMP traps.

Fixed sysfs link issue. To install, download the RPM file, and use rpm -ihv rpmfile This will deposit the cciss.


No longer spins up idle spare ccsis. On that server I tried: Arrayprobe which may need modifications to work with the hpsa driver. This new driver will support new Smart Array products going forward, and the cciss driver will eventually be deprecated. Your distribution may differ. The earlier fix would be called anytime something changed.

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

The hpsa driver has the ability to claim unknown Smart Arrays, however this is turned off by default so that it does not try to claim older controllers meant to be claimed by the cciss driver. After one kernel upgrade, the cciss setup broke completely. Logs to syslog, and optionally, sends SNMP traps. Removed unneeded lock in sysfs code.

Most likely, you do not need these, as the cciss driver has been in the Linux kernel for a very long time, and most distributions will already have a cciss driver which will work for you as is. May 6th, 6. If you really want cciss on RHEL7 checkout the elrepo directory. The reason however for the requirement of upgrade is that Amanda had started to exhibit regression errors which weren’t being fixed in The hpsa driver is a SCSI driver, while the cciss driver is a block driver.


Debian package is greatly simplified.


See these search results from hp. Sun May 28, Mkinitrd has changed on rhel5u1 and higher systems.

OS distros with warnings. Hmm, yeah, maybe I should go with the old fashioned way of setting up the kernel and maybe try hardened-sources too I’ve run servers not mission critical ones though on vanilla-sources before with few problems. May 6th, 3.

May 7th, 7. Fri Mar 03, 6: Create a directory and unpack the tarball. It can no longer find the rhel5 base media cciss driver following an uninstalled of an HP cciss rpm. In fact, you could extract the source tarballs from the source RPMs by using rpm2cpio.
