  1. Dell 1850 LSI MegaRAID Adapter Installation

    When installing Solaris 10 01/06 on a Dell 1850 I receive a "no disk
    found" error message. I assume that the drive/controller is not
    recognized. The Dell 1850 is listed under the HCL for Solaris 10 10/06.
    I don't believe I can use the Solaris(TM) Device Driver for the LSI
    MegaRAID Adapter floppy with 1/06.

    Any suggestions are appreciated.

    boot single user from the DVD and run "prtconf -pv"
    What's the output for the RAID controller?

    It doesn't claim to be compatible with a LSI Logic vendor/device id.

    You can try forcing amr(7D) or lsimega(7D) to bind to the device.

    You can setup a Jumpstart server or create an ITU floppy
    to update etc/driver_aliases

    Interesting. It works in Solaris Express 01/06. Here is the output of
    the RAID controller section from a prtconf -pv in Solaros Express
    01/05. Looks the same... Any ideas?

    $ grep 1028,13 /etc/driver_aliases

    With Solaris Express / Solaris Nevada, the lsimega driver binds to this
    device:

    $ grep pci1028,13 /etc/driver_aliases
    lsimega "pci1028,13.1028.16c"
    lsimega "pci1028,13.1028.16d"

  8. Re: Dell 1850 LSI MegaRAID Adapter Installation

    I see the same.


  9. Re: Dell 1850 LSI MegaRAID Adapter Installation

    There is a recently released LSI MegaRAID Adapter ITU Driver for
    Solaris 10 01/06.

    http://www.sun.com/download/products.xml?id=431fd1be

    I don't have a floppy drive. Do you know how I can add the extracted
    files to my jumpstart server (built with JET)?

    With JET, I think you create a miniroot per the Jumpstart guide
    and then just use JET to automate the add_install_client.

    See the Jumpstart docs:

    Solaris 10 Release and Installation Collection
    >> Solaris 10 Installation Guide: Network-Based Installations
    >> Installing Over a Local Area Network
    >> 8. Preparing to Install From the Network With DVD Media (Tasks)
    >> Creating an Install Server With DVD Media


    You can then run pkgadd -R /install_dir_path SUNWlsimega
