ProLiant Management Component Pack. See the “st” man page for more details. You can use these if you have a supported distribution running a supported kernel. You’ll find out soon enough if you do try to use it. To install, download the RPM file, and use rpm -ihv rpmfile This will deposit the cciss. 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. The earlier fix would be called anytime something changed.

Can’t find driver on HP Smart Array Ei Controller – CentOS
The installer will detect the absence of this firmware and prompt you for it at install-time. Alternatively, you can obtain non-official CD images with external firmware loading enabled; see Firmware. If you would ph to run hpsa instead, there is a new module parameter to cciss, “cciss.
You can use these if you have a supported distribution running a supported kernel. Last updated March 4, latest version is 3. 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.
See post 3 in this thread at linuxquestions which is a rough howto for CentOS.

From time to time there may be instances in which hardware or driver features are not supported by the cciss driver which comes with your distribution or kernel, because it is too old, or the hardware is too new, etc. Information on official HP support offerings for Debian can be found on http: SCSI error handling for tape drives and medium changers The Linux SCSI midlayer provides an error-handling protocol that is initiated whenever a SCSI command fails to complete within a linuc amount of time which can vary depending on the command.

Note also that most tape drives will not oblige in aborting commands, and sometimes it appears they will not even obey a reset command, though in most circumstances they will.
Use these for 2.
Mkinitrd has changed on rhel5u1 and higher systems.
