I have an old Dell PowerEdge R610 that I need to load Red Hat9 but since version 8, Red Hat has remove all drivers for older hardware from the ISO.
The R610 as LSILogic SAS1068E-IR SAS card in it (Dell SAS 6/iR). Could anyone please tell me where I can find the driver for this card for Red Hat 9?
To start I tough this was part of the SAS2008 familly and tried the drivers from
[this repo](https://elrepo.org/linux/dud/el9/x86_64/) but it didn’t work.
Could anyone please assist me?
The Red Hat KB asked people to replace the card but is there not a way to load the driver manually?
I found this repo, could nyone please tell me if the SAS 6/IR is a Megaraid or SaTA?
Based on your article you posted it looks like it isn’t supported. I personally wouldn’t try to hack my way into making it work either.
The vendor / device ID of your card is 1000:0058, according to this list: https://pci-ids.ucw.cz/read/PC/1000/0058
And according to this list here: http://elrepo.org/tiki/DeviceIDs#mptsas.ko -
dd-mptsas would be the matching driver package.
So I would try one of these:
Hope that helps.
@bb77 I cannot thank you enough for going through all the details above. I have now managed to load the correct driver and I can see all the HDD during the installation.
You just saved my bacon
