I'm running Gentoo on a
Fujitsu Primergy RX200 S7. Initially had 2 SAS drives on a PRAID eP400-i controller. Suddenly, the controller seems to have died, leaving me with no choice, but to use the server's integrated LSI MegaRAID SAS controller (which by the way, requires a SAS enabling key for SAS drives to work).
Can someone point me in the right direction, as to how do i get access to my partitions again?
I tried booting from a gentoo live install dvd. Loaded all the modules related to SAS and recompiled the kernel. Couldn't reboot, so I modeprobe'd each module manually, but still... no new drive in
I thought of installing a fresh gentoo with all the modules and firmware's, on a VM, and try a LAN boot, or even adding a SATA drive to the server and installing there. Maybe it needs a reboot, and I can't do it from a live cd.
lspci -k|grep SAS shows a
Serial Attached SCSI controller: Intel corporation C600/x79 series chipset 4-port SATA/SAS Storage Control Unit, but no module in use, so it makes sense that I don't see my RAID drive, so... what module do I need? How to best approach this issue? Been banging my head for 3 days now.
