Hi GBL84 thanks for your response , I have read the information from link , but I have some additional questions: If you really want cciss on RHEL7 checkout the elrepo directory. Hpsa should be fine for new installs on these controllers, however. Initially, there was some overlap in the boards which these two drivers support. Anyone know if there is a workaround for that?

Medium Surface Scan Delay: Fixed bug where deleting logical volumes could hang the system. A new Smart Array driver called “hpsa” has been accepted into the main line linux kernel as of Dec 18,in linux Debian package only builds binary cciss module.

HP Smart Array CCISS driver

To avoid this, you can modify your install image to include the needed firmware. See post 3 in this thread at linuxquestions which is a rough howto for CentOS.

Please try updating to latest drivers and update firmware using the below link, if the issue persists even after updating the firmware, Issue is with the controller and needs to be replaced. Most likely, you do not need these, as the cciss driver has been in the Linux kernel for a very long p400, and most distributions will already have a cciss driver which will work for you as is. Logs to syslog, and optionally, sends SNMP traps. That is, there are some kernels which have overlapping sets of controllers supported by both hpsa and cciss.

Use ‘simple mode’ rather than ‘performant mode’ int top output when hanging top – Allow hpsa driver to access unknown HP Smart Array hardware int parm: It neither modifies bootloader grub or lilo.

Any help on how to install Ubuntu even if it’s an old version would be greatly appreciated. The server was working fine for periods up to 4 months, and since 2 days it hanged 15 times per day. I searched with some breaks nearly a week around to find a way to workaround. This binary RPM may then be installed in the usual way, for instance: Some development versions 2.

Hello community, after hours days spent to understand what’s the problem reported also in the following thread: Remove Advertisements Sponsored Links.

Fixed a panic that could arise during an insmod and rmmod of the cciss driver.

To enable this feature of hpsa, the module parameter hpsa. The cciss driver previously contained a feature which would enable it by default to run on Smart Array controllers which it did not explicitly recognize except so far as to be able to determine that they were some sort of Smart Array. More details are available smmart this HP-provided document.


The current list of supported controllers for hpsa: Enabled Degraded Performance Optimization: Worked fine, liunx firmware required. Fixed “out of memory” error introduced in the 2.

See the “st” man page for more details.

Use these for systems using 2. See these search results from hp.

Tuning a HP Smart Array P400 with Linux – why tuning really matters…

I think your only option is to try the hpsa driver’s backward compatibility option: By default, this is set to k, but in my experience, this is really too little for every RAID controller I’ve worked with. Normally, you could do this from within the operating system, but Slackware is totally unsupported by HP as well. NIC 3,4 worked fine.

Fixed issue where controllers that had no configured volumes did not show up in the OS.
