Linux Installation

To reinstall the operating system, use the ASL customized Red Hat CD set. Because the Hightpoint SATA driver (hptmv) is not presented in the mainstream kernel source tree, all existing Linux distributions will not detect the controller. However, the ASL customized Red Hat CD set includes an updated ASL kernel that will recognize the card.

For Fedora Core 2/3/4, enter 'linux' to start the installation. Due to the PCI ID conflict between the Marvell SATA controllers and Highpoint RocketRAID controllers, the controller is no longer detected automatically. As a result, the hard drives are not detected either. The installer will then prompt for the driver selection. Select Yes. Then select Add Device. Next scroll through the device list and select HighPoint SATA RAID Adapter (hptmv). After the driver is loaded, select Done.

Important note for Fedora Core 3 & 4

At the end of the installation, do not select Reboot. Instead, perform the following steps.

  1. Press Ctrl-Alt-F2 to switch to a console
  2. At the shell prompt, run the following commands:
  3. Press Alt-F1 to switch back to the main screen
  4. Select Reboot to end the installation

For Red Hat Enterprise Linux version 3 or CentOS 3.5, use the CentOS-3.5 Drivers CD available in 32-bit or 64-bit edition. Note this CD is only included on systems that are purchased with RHEL3 or CentOS 3.5. At the start of the installation, enter 'linux dd' and perform the same steps as described for RHEL4.

For Red Hat Enterprise Linux version 4 or CentOS 4.X, use the CentOS-4.X Drivers CD available in 32-bit or 64-bit edition. Note this CD is only included on systems that are purchased with RHEL4 or CentOS 4.X. At the start of the installation, enter 'linux dd' and do the following:

  1. Select Yes for the driver disk.
  2. Select hdc for the driver source. After ejecting the install CD and insert the driver CD, press OK.
  3. When the installer prompts for more driver disk, eject the driver CD and reinsert the install CD. Then select No.
  4. The installer will not see the hard drives connecting to the Highpoint controller at this point. Thus when prompted for driver selection, select Yes.
  5. Select Add Device
  6. Scroll through the list and select HighPoint SATA RAID Adapter (hptmv). Then select OK.
  7. Select Done

Application Note

For RAID administration, the system includes a command line utility (hptraid) and GTK-based application (hptraidconf). User logging is required to access the information. The default user name is RAID and its password is hpt. To ensure security, the password should be changed. Note these tools cannot be run concurrently.

During RAID rebuilding, the controller alarm beeps continuously. To turn it off, run 'cat /proc/scsi/hptmv/0'. When using RAID Management Software under X, select the task 'Refresh' under the Management menu. That will also turn off the alarm.

After defining the hotspare(s) in RAID Management Software, the tool will prompt for a system reboot. It is not necessary to reboot the system at that point. The newly created hotspare is fully functional, even if the system has not been rebooted.

To rebuild array manually under RAID Management Software, select the degraded array, click on Add Disk button, and select the available drive from the list. The rebuild process will begin afterward.
