I have a motherboard S1200V3RPL with 2 HDDs. I configured a RAID-1 using the ESRT2 provided by the motherboard, and I tried to install multiple Virtualization solutions including Oracle VM.
Oracle VM 3.2.7 is based on RedHat/Oracle Linux 5.x for which I found the drivers here: Download Center
I unarchived the zip downloaded and I copied to a USB drive.
I started the installation from Oracle VM CD, and I passwd the following arguments:
mboot.c32 xen.gz --- vmlinuz linux dd noprobe=ata1 noprobe=ata2 noprobe=ata3 noprobe=ata4 --- initrd.img
When I was asked for the disk drivers, I pointed to the DUDs\megasr-15.04.2013.1016-1-rhel50-U9-64.img file, which was causing no errors
But in the screen for selecting the target installation storage I have nothing.
Any thoughts? Any other virtualization option?
The link didn't come through correctly - you are using this download?
And you are using the ESRT2 RAID with the RKSATA4R5 key, not the onboard RSTe software RAID option?
The only other thing I can think of is making sure you're on the latest firmware.
Thanks for bringing that the link is not correct. Indeed the correct link is one posted by you.
I am not using the key - that one is needed just for RAID5 as per documentation. I want to use it for RAID-1.
I tried to use ESRT2 RAID. The onboard RSTe is seen by the operating systems as 2 separate hard-drives.
In the meantime I succeeded to install Oracle Enterprise Linux 6.5 directly on ESRT2, but I would love to have ESRT2 on Oracle VM (which is a RedHat 5.x behind).
