So i rolled back to kernel version 3. May 16th, They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own. The driver can now support up to 32 controllers in the system. Without this fix the system will panic on reboot when the HP cciss rpm has been uninstalled. In this way, it is possible to run monitoring threads only for those. Fixed sysfs link issue.

So, here it goes!

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

Ubuntu Forums Code of Conduct. And no, using the UUID doesn’t work that is what was failing at the beginning. Hot plugging of SCSI tape drives is supported, with some caveats.

Note also that if no sequential access devices or medium changers are. Fixed sysfs link issue. Fixed a panic that could arise during an insmod and rmmod of the cciss driver.

cciss(4) – Linux man page

You’ll find out soon enough if you do try to use it. To disable the monitoring thread, set the polling interval to 0 seconds: Debian package is greatly simplified. Are you new to LinuxQuestions. The earlier fix would be called anytime something changed.


To enable this feature of hpsa, the module parameter hpsa. The driver will output messages indicating what. Visit the following links: See these search results from hp.

The normal protocol is a four-step process: This is best done via an initialization script. These scripts can be found. In the case of kernels with cciss and hpsa drivers which do have overlapping sets of supported lknux, by default, cciss will claim these devices if it is loaded prior to hpsa which it normally will be.

Arrayprobe which may need cfiss to work with the hpsa driver. There are newer versions. Results 1 to 10 of Initially, there was some overlap in the boards which these two drivers support. Please visit this page to clear all LQ-related cookies. To install, download Debian cciss source package.

This patch will get called only once for each controller. After updating everything to the latest i tried to reboot. Fixed a bug found by the L1 test suite. 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.


Some models of Smart Array are not able to honor this parameter. The driver then notifies the SCSI midlayer of these changes. 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.

Or someone that wants to entirely avoid the booting problem when updating their Linux kernel.
