I'm trying to get Intel's RAID Web Console 2 updated and working, and the sas_snmp and sas_ir_sanmp packages throw file conflicts at me, referring to a directory that seemingly doesn't exist. How can I force these to install/update, or fix the issue? And is the "lsi_mrdsnmp" a dependency?

You can't (or rather shouldn't; there are ways to force it but both packages may fail if present) have both packages installed at the same time. Use yum shell to remove the first package before installing the second.

I can't have both sas_ir and sas_snmp installed? I'm trying to uninstall everything and start over, but I get this /etc/lsi_mrdsnmp/sas/uninstall: No such file or directory when trying to uninstall sas_snmp package... –  Seth Apr 21 '11 at 16:08
    
Oh Intel... facepalm You will need to prevent that package from running its uninstall scripts; see the man page for details (I refuse to give out information that could potentially fry a system in public channels). –  Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Apr 21 '11 at 16:11
    
lol facepalm!? I don't follow your concern, so bypass the uninstall scripts? Is there a different way to monitor my raid? Now you have me worried... –  Seth Apr 21 '11 at 16:22
