Moving from centos7 with kernel plus

I am beginning to think about migrating to rocky linux, but I have an important question: I’m using the centosplus kernel because I have a 3ware raid controller. How to keep my hardware working with rocky?
Many thanks.

Would you please show the Vendor:Device ID pairing for the device. Output that is produced by executing the following –

lspci -nn | grep RAID

There is a good chance that you can find an appropriate kmod package from ELRepo.

$ lspci -nn | grep RAID
20:00.0 RAID bus controller [0104]: 3ware Inc 9650SE SATA-II RAID PCIe [13c1:1004] (rev 01)

Your device [13c1:1004] is supported by ELRepo’s kmod-3w-9xxx package:

This is the version for EL 8.4. If you need the driver for the installation of OS, use the DUD iso image found in:

So basically all I have to do is migrate with your published script, install this package to have the kernel working with my raid controller. After a reboot I can remove my centos-plus kernel and than remove his repository. My problem is my asset is at office and I’m working from home. It could be a problem if something goes wrong with new kernel. I must do when I turn back to the office than.

I assume you are going to migrate from CentOS 8.4, not from CentOS 7.

You can even install the kmod package before the migration and make certain it works on CentOS 8. It should then work on Rocky Linux.

Also, I strongly suggest you avoid doing the migration remotely. It is possible that you get in a situation where console access is required. Hope that does not happen but you never know.
