I have a problem to install RL on serveur lame DELL R610 with H700 or origin controller.
During the install, logical drive are not found. I think the driver is missing? I test without external controller and same problem with the PERC6/i onboard.
That is a different issue. On Intel chipset, I’d guess. When Intel SATA controller is in RAID-mode, an NVME drive on M.2 port is not visible to Linux (but Windows can see it). That is “a feature” of the “fakeRAID”. (Note: an NVME card on PCIe – part of the 16x channels directly from CPU – is visible to Linux.)
H700, however, is real RAID controller. If you don’t have drivers to use it, then you can’t use it (or anything connected to it). Devices, like SATA controller on chipset, graphics, and USB chips might have some basic functionality for which “universal” drivers are included. Advanced features and more special devices require specific drivers (from vendor, usually).
So the DUD ISO approach was successful? I just booted a RL 8.5 DVD on a Poweredge R710 and the installer did not recognize the RAID. I found this article and downloaded the ISO it mentions:
I’ll try that when I get the necessary round tuit.
I’m getting nowhere on my project to get a Poweredge T110 II going as well. It has 4x500 gig disks in a RAID 0 set up by the UEFI/BIOS RAID option, and I’ve tried a RL 8.5 DVD and a flash disk with the Security Onion 2.3.100 ISO written on it. The box recognizes both devices but refuses to boot from either. The RAID virtual disk doesn’t show up in the boot manager on top of that. Both the DVD and flash disk will boot other systems, although the R710 won’t boot from the flash disk. Frustrating, a lot of time up in smoke this weekend with little to show for it.
If Rocky ISO had a driver, then natural expectation is that it installs (RPM package) into the system too and that updates for that package come from the Rocky repos. That in turn would mean that both ELRepo and Rocky would have to maintain/build the same packages, which is redundant.
Hello, I just wanted to ask a related question here.
I will be upgrading a centos8 to RL and the server has the Dell H700 controller in it. When I upgrade does that mean I will not have the drivers available to run the controller card and will have to make a preload driver on a usb?
