Check out the elrepo driver repository http://elrepo.org/ for a CentOS7 cciss driver.

Here are a few suggestions. Is your ILO connected and configured? It will tell your exactly what's happening with the system. Please review the ILO4 log. View the system's IML log (available via ILO or vSphere "hardware" tab) Are there any indicators or error messages on the screen during crash or at POST? Are you using the HP-specific install of ESXi ...

The 12-slot model of this server has a SAS expander installed on the drive backplane. Gen8 ProLiant servers require a healthy FBWC cache module installed in the RAID controller in order to interface with an expander backplane. Your supplier messed up. Despite this, you'd want the FBWC for performance reasons. My recommendation is to get a P420 ...

Well the B320i only supports 8 disks/disk slots - have you added an additional disk cage or put this card in one of the 25-slot models? also I didn't think you could get a B320i without at least 512MB of FBWC - have you removed it?

In our company we have three server HP Proliant DL380 G7. For one of them the button power off suddently didn't work when when did a shutdown. We realize that the switch itself didn't have the same behavior as the two others which were working. We unmount the small front panel where the button is, it's easy you don't need a screwwdriver. And we saw that ...

What happened prior to this? Did you replace a disk? A reboot during a RAID controller rebuild is not harmful. The controller would just resume. If you had a deeper array problem or removed the wrong disk(s), then there could be an issue. How/why did the server reboot? HP ProLiant servers are reasonably intelligent. The server will tell you exactly what ...

The DL380 G4's do not have the P-State capabilities for this (ILO1). The DL580 G5 does (ILO2). If possible, you should not even bother using the DL380 G4's, as they're 10 years-old and have been eclipsed by five product lines since they were active products. VMware vSphere can do this automatically, but if you're running ESXi on the G4's, it's likely a ...

So, you're using an HP ProLiant server, are you by chance also using iLO (Integrated Lights-Out)? If so, it's possible to integrate VMware's Distributed Power Management (DPM) feature with iLO on at least the ESXi host you have there, as long as you're using vCenter Server. I found the support doc for VMware vSphere 5.5 (I don't know which version you're ...

Battery and flash-backed write caches (BBWC/FBWC) are very important when working with HP Smart Array controllers. Performance tends to suffer without them. I suspect you may have a few things happening here... RAID5 is typically a no-no. Without any write cache, you're susceptible to I/O wait and disk rotational latencies during writes. Whatever is ...

Now I have tried with 32GB (2x8GB + 4x4GB) register memory, using only one CPU (E5520). According to specs the limit is 24GB (6x4GB). The system has been running very stable for 4 months now. I still really want to see if 32GB modules gets accepted. :-)

Lots of similar questions in a short period... Ubuntu isn't well-suited to vendor-specific hardware support (probably the vendors' fault, but it is what it is). The HP ProLiant N54L server you have has binary drivers for the storage array that are only available for Windows and Red Hat. See: Cant find my harddrives in ubuntu installation? The RAID ...

If the disks you're using are not HP drives and you're using a Gen8 ProLiant server, there's no guarantee that the disks will be recognized or will even work reliably. Your best option is to use actual HP branded/supported drives in the server. See: Third-party SSD solutions in ProLiant Gen8 servers

Silly question, but have you checked the firmware on your machine and its components? I ask because the changelogs for the DL320e Gen8 firmware include valuable nuggets like: Resolved a processor issue where certain instructions and conditions could result in an application-level error, blue screen, kernel panic, or other unpredictable system ...

You'll want to run BIOS upgrades before attempting this transition. Were you upgrading from an Intel 5500-series CPU? Did you previously have two CPUs? When the fan are running loudly, are there any messages on the screen? What do the server's health LEDs display on the front panel? Intel 5600-series CPUs are compatible with this platform with several ...

Anaconda asks DBus to check with NetworkManager if it's not connecting or if it's not connected already, thus, if there is network connectivity (so it won't ask about VNC). DBus will talk to NM but it seems that the call to _get_proxy (which creates a proxy object to talk to DBus) failed. So it seems there is a problem with DBus, but it's not clear just ...

Is there any chance you can try this with a soft keyboard on the Mac instead? I've always had problems with remote Ubuntu installations over IPMI and lower-end ILO solutions.I usually have to resort to an on-screen keyboard on the ILO/IPMI side or on the local OS side. (sorry, I can only give these instructions in English...) Open the Language & Text ...

Ready for Rebuild is a bad status if you're using a parity RAID level, like 5 or 6. It means that you likely have read errors on another drive in the array... e.g. another failing drive. If the system is still online your best option is to recover data or rebuild. There's no good fix for this, and definitely not much you can do to debug. See the following: ...

Raid1 is just a mirrored disk, so if you enable raid1 and have your 1st disk as primary and the 2nd as the mirror, no you wont loose any data. Did this yesterday on a dl320 and it was fine

The defaults will do what you need without issue... That is, there's nothing in the default configuration that would preclude proper operation of vSphere 5.5. You may want to modify a few other BIOS settings, depending on your workload and usage patterns: Power Management: My applications care about latency, so I tend to disable the power and CPU-scaling ...

Sure, this is an easy process... Once the rebuild is done, you can either use the "Unused Space" to create another Logical Drive (e.g. Logical Drive 3), or you can Extend Logical Drive 2 to utilize the extra space. Once this is done, you'll see a larger block device available to your operating system. If this is Windows, the free space will be ...

I have BL460c G1, and I simply use standard settings, but ensure Intel VT technologies, and Execute Disable Bit, or INTEL TXT (if you have) are enabled, they are madatory for ESXi 5.5

The "Error: Line #1: syntax error near "?>"" message is probably due to the .xml file being written encoded as Unicode and it needs to be ASCII/ANSI. Open the file in Notepad and do a "save as". See what encoding it is saving it as.
