The hpsa driver has the ability to claim unknown Smart Arrays, however this is turned off by default so that it does not try to claim older controllers meant to be claimed by the cciss driver. I have a ML G2 with a array controller. Here’s a sample report from arrayprobe 2. This patch will get called only once for each controller. Hardware RAID logical volumes are invisible to OS, physical disks are exposed to OS, Debian could be installed but has to be handled with great care upon post-installation and when upgrading!

I had a feeling I would get an answer from you: You can think of this as a daemonized version of arrayprobe, in that both of them detect failures in the same way by looking at “events” reported by the controller, cpqarrayd in real time, arrayprobe after the fact. How to use smartctl with cciss.
I love how it does everything for you with little options. To install, download Debian cciss source package. X tarballs Last updated November 01,latest version is 3.

To build the source tarballs: Worked fine, needs bnx2 firmware. I’m glad you’ve adapted it to your system: Imho smartmontools is a better idea than the HP-tools disk monitoring as they tend to be somewhat resource consuming. The kernel module ccisswhich comes with the 2. In fact, you could extract the source tarballs from the source RPMs ccisss using rpm2cpio.
I can only recommend.

Note also that if no sequential access devices or medium changers are detected, the SCSI core will not be engaged by the action of the above script. Additionally, note that the driver will not engage the SCSI core at init time.
If you’re using identical physical disks you won’t notice any “difference” as smartmontools is focused on monitoring physical disks and not controllers or logical disks you can and will not find any information of those in smartmontools. Here’s a sample report from arrayprobe 2.
Fix firmware version not being printed in vciss. See the “st” man page for more details.

Hosting provided by Metropolitan Area Network Darmstadt. Hi Andrew, the script is simple to setup. You may need firmware blobs found at here and here and instructions found at installation manual chapter 6.
Supported it for some time on 3Ware’s and since 5. Added a procfs interface so users can tell the driver to rescan our devices.
The installer will detect the absence of this firmware and prompt you for it at install-time. To get it working for me, I installed the kernel from experimental 2.
I had to make a small fix to work on my system:
