Megaraid SAS software installation on CentOS Linux

Saturday, October 20th, 2012

With a standard el5 on a new Dell server, it may be necessary to install the Dell Raid driver, otherwise the OMSA always reports an error and hardware monitoring is therefore obsolete:

Previously, the megaraid_sys package was now called mptlinux

For this we need the following packages in advance:

# yum install gcc kernel-devel
Now the driver stuff:

# yum install dkms mptlinux
That should have built the new module, better test it:

# modinfo mptsas

# dkms status
After a kernel update it may be necessary to build the driver for the new version:

# dkms build -m mptlinux -v

# dkms install -m mptlinux -v
