Ubuntu :: Intel RAID Controller - Showing 2 Drives?

Apr 24, 2010

I shall start off by saying that I have just jumped from Windows 7 to Ubuntu and am not regretting the decision one bit. I am however stuck with a problem. I have spent a few hours google'ing this and have read some interesting articles (probably way beyond what the problem actually is) but still don't think I have found the answer.I have installed:

Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu lucid (development branch)
Release: 10.04
Codename: lucid

I am running the install on an old Dell 8400. My PC has an Intel RAID Controller built into the MB. I have 1 HDD (without RAID) (which is houses my OS install) and then I have 2 1TB drives (These are just NTFS formatted drives with binary files on them nothing more.) in a RAID 1 (Mirroring) Array. The Intel RAID Controller on Boot recognizes the Array as it always has (irrespective of which OS is installed) however, unlike Windows 7 (where I was able to install the Intel RAID controller driver) .Does anyone know of a resolution (which doesn't involve formatting and / or use of some other software RAID solution) - to get this working which my searches have not taken me too?

Ubuntu Servers :: PCIe RAID Controller With 4 Intel SSDs?

Jan 12, 2011

I have been thinking about upgrading my RAID setup from a pair of Intel X25s running the software based RAID included with ubuntu to four Intel X25s running off a PCIe based controller. The controller is an HP P400 which I know works great on ubuntu (I have other machines running it with SAS drives). My desktop has an Intel S5000XVNSATAR mainboard and I have an open PCIe v1.0 8x (physical) slot that is wired 4x. The controller is 8x and will fit fine. How much of a performance hit do you think I will see running this 8x controller in the slot wired 4x with four Intel x25s in a RAID 10? Will I have enough bandwidth with the 4x for those SSD's?

Fedora Hardware :: Raid Not Detected - Only Showing Seperate Drives / Fix It?

Jan 6, 2010

I recently installed Fedora 12 for use with Amahi HDA. Before installing on the Hard drive I used the LIVE CD to test it out. While using the LIVE CD I could see all my HDD's. My file system, my 2nd Hard Drive, and my Raid 0 Configuration. (2 250GB drives) and could browse all my files on those drives.

After installing the full version on my hard drive, my RAID drives are showing up as seperate drives. I have a Asus P4P800 board using hte SATA raid. I know its FAKERaid and not a true hardware raid.

My goal is to restore the Raid in Fedora and make those drives active. However, i dont want to lose any of the data on those drives. To make sure I wasn't an idiot, i rebooted withthe LIVE CD again and verified that I could see the Raid Array.

OpenSUSE Install :: Can't Install On Machine With Intel Raid Controller

Jul 20, 2010

I cannot install 11.3 on a machine with an intel raid controller I have tried with raid 1 using the card and then setting the disks to individual raid 0 and letting suse raid them. With the card doing it the machines crashes as soon as it tries to boot the first time, with suse doing the raid I just get 'GRUB' on the screen It seems a lot of people are having similar problems, does any one have any pointers. 11.2 installs fine. I would try and do a bug report but every time I go to the page it's in Czech

CentOS 5 Hardware :: Connect A RAID Box To The Server Via LSI 8880EM2 RAID Controller

Aug 3, 2010

I am trying to connect a RAID Box to the server via LSI 8880EM2 RAID controller.The raid box is FUjitsu Externus DX60 with raid 1 configured.The server is Fujitsu Primergy SX300 S5 with LSI 8880EM2 RAID card.The external raid box is being recognised by the raid controllers bios.

The server runs CentOS 5.5 64bit. I have installed the megaraid_sas driver from LSI website and MegaCLI utility but CentOS still fails to see the box.MegaCLI utility, when launched from CentOS, recognises the raid box, CentOS does not(no mapping being created in /dev).

I have also tried to create a logical RAID0 HDD on one physical HDD(as seen by MegaCLI) with MegaCLI utility in CentOS.The result was success and the new logical drive could have been used, but when restarting the server, the controllers' bios fails with an error (not surprised(one logical RAID0 on one physical HDD)) and configuration is being erased.

Has anyone tried connecting 8880EM2 controller to a raid box with raid configured on the box, running it all under CentOS and what were the results.

Ubuntu Installation :: Rebuild Status Raid 1 Intel Isw Fakeraid Intel?

Oct 1, 2010

I have recently installed Ubuntu 10.04.1 lts server on my Intel "fakeraid" (software raid) (2x250 sata).To test my RAID 1 I turned off one HD and start the system.The first screen (Intel software screen) show Status = Degraded, but the system starts normally with just one HD.Then I turned off the system and turned on the HD again, so the first screen (Intel software screen) shows Status = Rebuild. If I enter in the software raid panel the folowing message is showed: "Volumes with "Rebuild" status will be rebuilt within the operating system"The system starts normally... but this message status stays permanently even I restart the system again

Ubuntu Servers :: RAID-1 OS Drives - Setting Up A Backup Procedure For The OS Drives

Jan 18, 2010

I'm breaking into the OS drive side with RAID-1 now. I have my server set up with a pair of 80 GB drives, mirrored (RAID-1) and have been testing the fail-over and rebuild process. Works great physically failing out either drive. Great! My next quest is setting up a backup procedure for the OS drives, and I want to know how others are doing this.

Here's what I was thinking, and I'd love some feedback: Fail one of the disks out of the RAID-1, then image it to a file, saved on an external disk, using the dd command (if memory serves, it would be something like "sudo dd if=/dev/sda of=backupfilename.img") Then, re-add the failed disk back into the array. In the event I needed to roll back to one of those snapshots, I would just use the "dd" command to dump the image back on to an appropriate hard disk, boot to it, and rebuild the RAID-1 from that.

Does that sound like a good practice, or is there a better way? A couple notes: I do not have the luxury of a stack of extra disks, so I cannot just do the standard mirror breaks and keep the disks on-hand, and using something like a tape drive is also not an option.

Ubuntu Servers :: IBM Raid Controller Not Recognized

Jun 3, 2010

I'm having a problem with the installation of Ubuntu Server 10.04 64bit on my IBM xSeries 346 Type 8840. During the installation the system won't recognize any disk, so it's asking which driver it should use for the RAID controller. There's a list of options, but nothing seems to work. I've been searching the IBM website for an appropriate driver, but there is no Ubuntu version (there is Red Hat, SUSE, etc). I was thinking about downloading the correct driver onto a floppy disk to finalize the installation, but apparently no 'general' Linux driver to solve the problem here.

Hardware :: Is LSI Logic RAID Controller Embedded Or Not

Dec 20, 2010

I have been using lspci, dmidecode, and mpt-status to get hardware information on my Dell 1950 running Ubuntu 8.10. I'm pretty sure my server is using an embedded SCSI RAID controller from info I got from Dell's site:

1CR679Assembly, Card, SAS6IR, Integrated, Sled
1TX846Assembly, Cable, Controller SAS, POWEREDGE EXPANDABLE RAID CONTROLLER

When I run lspci I see:

01:00.0 SCSI storage controller: LSI Logic / Symbios Logic SAS1068E PCI-Express Fusion-MPT SAS (rev 08)

PCI-Express is an actual...well, PCI card, right? But dmidecode shows that I have two x8 PCI Express slots that are both available. Sooo...I'm missing something. How am I running a PCI Express SCSI controller without using a PCI Express slot? In the event of not having the kind of info that I did (i.e. the service tag) how would I be able to tell at a glance whether a component like my RAID controller was embedded or not?

Slackware :: Driver For Via VT6421 Raid Controller?

Feb 6, 2010

I have a VT6421 based raid controller. lspci shows this: 00:0a.0 RAID bus controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT6421 IDE RAID Controller (rev 50) The drivers that come with it appear to have been compiled against an old kernel (I'm guessing). When I try to load them I get invalid module format. dmesg shows this: viamraid: version magic '2.6.11-1.1369_FC4 686 REGPARM 4KSTACKS gcc-4.0' should be '2.6.27.7-smp SMP mod_unload Does anyone know of a way to get this to work? I found the source for this, but it appears to only support Fedora, Mandrak, and RedHat. I can't get it to compile or make a driver disk.

CentOS 5 :: Installing The SATA RAID Controller?

Mar 19, 2009

I'm working on a new server and it has an Nvidia SATA array controller with 2 250Gb SATA drives configured in a hardware array. When the first screen comes up I'm entering the option Linux DD for it to prompt me for the drivers but nothing ever happens. The screen says that it's loading a SATA driver for about 15 minutes and then the screen clears and has a plus sign cursor on a black screen. What am I doing wrong? The only driver that came with the HP server are for Redhat 4 and 5 and SUSE, will any of those actually work?

Ubuntu Installation :: Add LSI Drivers For 9750 RAID Controller During Install

Sep 1, 2010

I need to add the LSI drivers for the 9750 RAID controller during the install. These drivers are not included in 10.04 (or 10.04.1) and I need to install onto the RAID device I've created. LSI provides the drivers and instructions here - [URL]

Here are my steps, with the drivers on a USB drive -
Code:
Boot from the installation CD and select Install Ubuntu Server.
Press CTRL+ALT+F2 to switch to console 2 while Ubuntu detects the network.
# mkdir /mnt2 /3ware
# mount /dev/sda1 /mnt2
NOTE: LSI drivers are at /dev/sda1, via USB
# cp /mnt2/9750-server.tgz /3ware
# cd /3ware ; tar zxvf 9750-server.tgz
# umount /mnt2

* Remove the USB flash before insmod command *
# insmod /3ware/2.6.32-21-generic/3w-sas.ko

Press CTRL+ALT+F1 to return to the installer. Continue the installation as usual. Do not reboot when the installation is complete. Press CTRL+ALT+F2 to switch to console 2 again.

# cp /3ware/2.6.32-21-server/3w-sas.ko /target/lib/modules/2.6.32-21-server/kernel/drivers/scsi
# chroot /target
# /sbin/depmod -a 2.6.32-21-server
# update-initramfs -u -v
# exit

Press CTRL+ALT+F1 to return to the installer. Reboot to complete the installation. There are no errors, but after I reboot I just get "GRUB" in the upper left corner, nothing else.

Ubuntu Servers :: Update The Drive For Adaptec Raid Controller?

Sep 4, 2010

I was trying to update the drive for my adaptec raid controller. Unfortunately, Adaptec only provides RPM packages. So I converted the package using alien. After dpkg install, I then tried using dkms to build the module:

Code:
root@atulsatom# dkms add -m aacraid -v 1.1.5.26400
Adding driver was successful, but I got some error during the build
Code:
root@atulsatom# dkms build -m aacraid -v 1.1.5.26400
Kernel preparation unnecessary for this kernel. Skipping.

Hardware :: Configure A 3ware 9650SE RAID Controller?

Mar 13, 2011

Why could there not be a 3-way or even 4-way RAID level 1 (mirror)? It seems every hardware (and at least the software I tested a few years ago) RAID controller only supports a 2-way mirror.I recently tried to configure a 3ware 9650SE RAID controller. I selected all 3 drives. Then RAID 1 was not presented as an option. Only RAID 0 (striping, no redundancy) and RAID 5 (one level of redundancy, low performance). Is there some engineer who thinks "triple redundancy is a waste, so I'm not going to let them do that"? Or is it a manager?

Mirror RAID should be simple, even when more than 2 drives are used. The data is simply written in parallel to all the drives in the mirror set, and read from one of the drives (with load balancing over parallel and/or read-ahead operations to improve performance, though some of this is in question, too).

Ubuntu Servers :: Mdadm RAID 6 Array With Si 3132 SATA Controller ?

Mar 12, 2010

I've recently started having an issue with an mdadm RAID 6 array that been operational for about 2500 hours.

Intermittently during write operations the array stalls, dropping to almost 0 write speed for 10-30 seconds. When this occur one or both of the 2 drives attached to a 2 port Silicon Image si3132 SATA-II controller "locks up" with its activity light locked on. This just started occurring within the last week and didn't seem to coincide with any update that i noticed. The array has just recently passed 12.5% full. The size of the write does not seem to make any difference and it seems completely random. Some times copying a 5 GB dataset results in no slow down other times a torrent downloading to the array at 50kb/sec does cause a slow down and vise versa.

The array consists of 8 WD 1.5TB drives, 6 attached to the ICH9R south bridge, and 2 attached to a si3132 based PCI express card. The array is formatted as a single ext4 partition.

Checking SMART data for all drives shows no errors. Testing read speed with hdparm reports what i would expect (100mb/sec for each drive, ~425mb/sec for the array).

The only thing i did notice is that udma6 is enabled for all the ICH9R drives while only udma5 is enabled for the si3132 drives. Write cache is enabled for all the disks. Attempting to set the si3132 drive to udma6 results in an IO error from hdparm.

The si3132 drive is using the sata_sil24 driver. Nothing of interest appears in the kern or syslog. During this time top shows very high wait time.

The s13132 controller appears to have the original firmware from 2006 loaded, there are some firmware updates available on the Silicon Image website for this controller that now appear to offer separate firmwares for RAID operation (some sort of hybrid controller/software thing the controller supports) and a separate firmware for standard IDE use.

Has anyone had similar issues with this controller? Is a firmware update a reasonable course of action? If so which firmware is best supported by the linux driver?

I know i'm not using its raid features but i've dealt with controllers that needed to be in raid mode for ahci to be active and for linux to work well with them. I'm bit ify at the idea of just trying it and finding out as it could knock 2 disks of my array out of action.

Hardware :: Stop Or Work Around Onboard SATA Raid Controller

Problem 1: When I plug in my SATA server hard drive loaded with Slackware 12.2 and linux kernel 2.6.30.4, the onboard raid controller recognizes the one drive and allows the OS to boot. Slackware gets stuck looking for a raid array and stops at this point -........
