MegaRAID

Dear all!

I've acquired a Fujitsu-Siemens Worksatation with an on-board LSI MegaRAID SAS Modle 8208 ELP.

I tryed first to install OpenSuse 11.1 but the system doesn't detect the Hard disk (RAID 10).

In the LSI webpage I found that the Enterprise versions has drivers for this card, so I donwloades the evaluation version Desktop 11. Exactly the same problems remains. The Fujitsu support can't hel because this kind of server are designed for windows (I cuold not just believe that, but it's true).

Please, I need help to install the Suse OS... It should be possible somehow

Thanks

That's exactly what our sister forums, the opensuse forums are for. Go
visit them here:

http://forums.opensuse.org/

The same login you have here should also work for the opensuse forums

Well, "here" is just the chat forum which is not for technical support. In
case you want to ask the question specifically for SLED, I suggest you
post in the SLED install forum which can be found at the following link:

Re: MegaRAID

If the SE server 10 SP3 contains the driver for the LSI SAS MegaRAID 8208ELP, the 11 version should contain this too.. No?

I've tryed to do somethig and I saw how the server has this device in the list... It demand some command for the kernel configuration but I have no Idea what to introduce in this menu.

As RAID 10 is configure 10 has been introduced... Should I try?

RAID10
RAID 10
"RAID 10"
"RAID10"
"10"

Anybody know something about?

Thanks

Re: MegaRAID

Like Marcel said before, this is the chat forum. There is no technical
support for Novell products here.

Fjchichon,

> Anybody know something about?


You need to post your questions in the support forum. This is the chat
forum. There's no support for any Novell product in here, only chat.

Re: MegaRAID

OK, fine.

The problem is that there's no help at the end. I tryed to contact someone who can help me but all said the same...

That's not the place..., We cannot help you...

Is like everybody want to skip my questions.

I tryed to contatc Novel people for support and they change me to the forums...

You said that I should transfer it to the OpenSuse... Probaply unworthy because the possible driver are in the Enterprise versions....

I don't really know. Sorry for the inconveniences

Did that help you? It should at least get you on your way to a correct
forum for SUPPORT. This SPECIFIC little place is the NON-Support forum. 😞

I gave yxou the link for the correct place to post. I just checked that
forum and I don't see any message form you there. The least effort from
your side should be to ask the question in the right place. Here you got
the help to find the correct place to post. To avoid chaos in the forums,
we insist that technical questions should not be answered in completely
off topic forums. Otherwiese, we would only need one single forum for all
messages, and in that case, the forums would of course become quite
useless to all users.
