We have an IBM server x3650 M3, and I'm trying to install Linux without using HW RAID (ServeRAID), as per cluster storage software vendor requirements.
The problem is that the server exposes the physical drives only to WebBios interface, and Linux insallation (RedHat Anakonda) sees only the virtual drives, not the physical ones. If we clear the RAID configuration, the installation doesn't see any drives at all.
Is there any way to disable the built-in ServeRaid and expose the drives to operation system?
Or the only way is to bypass RAID physically and connect the disks to motherboard directly?
Thanks in advance!
