qlogic 8.01 driver spewing errors on rhel4qu2_64

(Dell San support sent me here - blame them)
 
 
Dell 2850s with 2 Qlogic 2640 hbas  loaded rhel4qu2 from the Dell Deploy CD from Dave Mar's group
 
Problem is the san is a IBM ESS 800.  I have one lun presented to me and it is visible at the bios level from each hba.
 
But once the kernel starts NASH, I get 30 repeated errors

migrate RHEL3 to CentOS3.7 on PE2850

We've got a PE2850 with hardware RAID which has been running RHEL3 for a
couple of years with no problem... now i'm planning to "kick a sleeping
dog" and migrate it to CentOS 3.7

I was curious if anyone had encountered any problems with CentOS3.X on a
PE2850  or if anyone else had "kicked the dog" in this way and would
like to share what happened when they did...?

shrinking a container on PERC 3/Di

I'm using PowerEdge4400 equiped with PERC 3/Di ROMB. I was trying to
shrink an existing container:

3    Stripe 23.8GB       32KB Valid
 /dev/sdd             home
  57  Mirror 7.93GB                    0:00:0  553MB:7.93GB
                                       0:01:0  553MB:7.93GB
  56  Mirror 7.93GB                    0:02:0  553MB:7.93GB
                                       0:03:0  553MB:7.93GB
  55  Mirror 7.93GB                    0:05:0  553MB:7.93GB
                                       0:04:0  553MB:7.93GB

Using the command (I'm afacli fan):

container reconfigure /partition_size=7680M 3

but I'm getting following error message:

Executing: container reconfigure /partition_size=8,053,063,680  3
Command Error: <The reconfigure operation failed because the new
container size was too small.>

What is the problem? Is it possible to shrink an existing container
without deleting it?

Best regards

migrate RHEL3 to CentOS3.7 on PE2850

Hello Ted,

I "kicked the dog" and use CentOs 3.7 with no problems at all, but on 
one PE-830. I use CentOs 4 on others 3 PE-830 and CentOs 2.1 on a PE2800 
and it's working very well too. I think CentOs is excellent and it is 
the better (and cheap) alternative to RedHat. CentOS is a real clone of 
certified RedHat, so it's great for your server.

Good luck.

Florencio

Re: Dell tape vaults and linux

I have been using a PV132T (LTO-2) with Bru for several months.
It is attached to a 1650, dual 1.26Ghz, 512Mb ram.
Throughput from network clients is pretty much limited by how
small the files are. Big compressible files reach 60Mb/s, many small files will
slow down to maybe 10-15Mb/s (all on gibabit network).
Physical test to the tape drive with local gzip'd (uncompressable) files hits the
drive-to-tape limit of about 30Mb/s.

I get about 450-500Gb per tape (LTO-2, 200Gb native).
The existing GUI is a little limited, but functional. A new GUI is
currently available for Mac servers, and once the bugs are worked out
they will release the Linux version. Client software install's easily
and I have used the Linux and SGI IRIX clients with no problems.

No real problems so far. BRU keeps track of the tapes using the bar codes
and I have tried file restore several times with no problems.

Moving Dell's pre-installed Windows inside Xen

This is more of a Dell Linux issue than a PowerEdge issue, but the most clueful Dell Linux users are here, and thanks in advance for any help you can offer!

I got a new Dimension workstation with Windows pre-installed, but I want to reinstall with Fedora 5 and run Windows under Xen virtualization.  It would be easy if Dell included installation media; I could use that to reinstall Windows under Xen.  How can I accomplish the Windows install using the Dell PC Restore partition on here?  Or is there a better way?

Thank you!

Re: DELL PE 1650 ERA/O not available anymore

I think as Michael
I had have a similar problem that yours and it was solved installing the update from the floppy package. It could take 15 "clock" minutes.
But it works finally
Tell us how you solve this problem!
regards
 

2006/5/29, Michael Marshall <Michael.Marshall <at> lbfire.org.uk>:
I had a similar issue albeit under Windows.  The ERA didn't respond on
it's own NIC, the windows update package would moan that no card was
present etc.  Also the BIOS would moan that the Embedded server
management firmware was damaged or something similar.

After a discussion with Tech Support, I managed to find a pile of
discarded floppies and write the floppy firmware update discs using the
floppy package on the web.

Booting off this puts the card into a 'Recovery mode' and re-flashes it
back to defaults (so be careful it'll be back to the default
username/password).  It took a good 5-10 minutes to do this in total.

Also, make sure to test your floppies are readable or take multiple
copies of the disks with you - I went through 6 discs before I found two
that were reliably readable.... I get the feeling 'new' floppies have
been sitting in a damp warehouse somewhere for the last ten years.....

Michael.

I already tried that, but if I download the Firmware update for the ERA
(linux bin-file) and try to install that one, I get the error that the
ERA card can not be established. I'm not at the server location (40
minutes drive), so I can not try to install it through an floppy right
now.

Do you know that the hardware processor you have includes the hardware
virtualization assist "VT" capability?  That is necessary for Xen
(which typically uses paravirtualized guest OSs, which of course
Windows isn't).  http://wiki.xensource.com/xenwiki/IntelVT  lists the
Intel processors which are VT-capable.

Some of our new Dimensions include Pentium D 9xx processors with VT
capability, but those are at the higher end of the Dimension
spectrum.  Lower down, Pentium D 8xx or Celeron D's won't have VT (per
http://www.intel.com/products/processor_number/index_view_xeon.htm).

Thanks,
Matt

SLES 9 Network Install Dell 2850

Hi,
 
I'm attempting to install sles9 XA64 over network.  It appears that my driver e1000 loads,  thou I'm unable to get on the network.  
 
I haven't got my pxe server configured yet, so I'm just booting from CD1 and telling the boot loader to boot via http. 
 
I've succesfully installed over the network using this method with SLES9 32 bit on Dell 2650s
 
Tomorrow, I will attempt to install using CD1 SP3...just wondering in the meantime if anyone has even got the 64bit version to install over the network on Dell 2850s and if there are any known issues that I need to be aware of...
 
 
TIA,
 
Dave

Fwd: SLES 9 Network Install Dell 2850

Hi Again,
 
I resolved my issue by adding netwait=60 to my kernel params.  This gave my network card enough time to activate on my network.
