Ubuntu 8.10 + DELL OMSA 5.5.0-5 i386.deb + PowerEdge 1750 No Controllers Found Issue [08/11/2014]

Jump to solution

Hello All,


PROBLEM:

root@ubuntu:~# omreport storage controller
No controllers found

*Please note the WEBGUI shows everything else EXCEPT the PERC*

*EVERYTHING ELSE IS SHOWING UP ON SERVER WHEN I LOG*

Loading via CLI:

/etc/init.d/dataeng restart

/etc/init.d/dsm_om_connsvc restart

/etc/init.d/snmpd restart

I've installed the DELL OMSA from this LINK manually:

ftp://ftp.sara.nl/pub/sara-omsa/dists/dell/sara/binary-i386/

dellomsa_5.5.0-5_i386.deb

QUESTION:


Does anyone know how to configure the remaining portion of the DELL OMSA so the PERC shows up in the GU or OMREPORT?

Also, I want to upgrade the FIRMWARE, will this be ok [I can load Windows XP Mini to do this task]

Thanks,

 Are you just wanting to monitor the Raid or are you trying to do something else? You could try the lsi raid software and see if that works. http://www.lsi.com/support/pages/download-results.aspx?component=Storage+Component&productfamily=Leg...

 

Or this tool http://sourceforge.net/projects/megactl

 

With it not being a validated OS it might not be possible to get it to work correctly.

Hi HipHopTech,

It is probably because it is using the generic LSI driver and not the Dell specific driver for the PERC, since Ubuntu was not supported on that system it may not work. You could try download this file perc-2.20.4.4-A01.tar.gz

From the scsi raid section http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/19/product-support/product/poweredge-1750/drivers

I will give this a shot and see if that works, and revert back!

I was able to get the needed driver for mine but I am unable to install such:

http://delldriverdownload.com/poweredge-700-red-hat-enterprise-linux-4-drivers/

It says I need a bunch of dependencies installed which some are newest version on ubuntu and also tried to install using .rpm without success.  I did check my RAID and its the MegaRAID driver.


If you could post one that has been used, that would be appreciated. I can post pics of what screen said during trial.

Did the following to fully install driver:

sudo apt-get install alien dpkg-dev debhelper build-essential

sudo alien megaraid_v2.20.4.4-3_i386.rpm

sudo dpkg -i megaraid_v2.20.4.4-3_i386packagename.deb

I used the driver as suggested from link above matching filename.

[Results: Didn't work when I tried omreport storage controller]

Any other suggestions?

Hi Josh,

I was able to actually get this finally working to check RAID LSI PERC 4/Di by doing the following:

EDITED /etc/apt/sources.list with..

#LSI HWRAID - PERC 4/Di
deb http://hwraid.le-vert.net/debian wheezy main

Then ran the following

1. wget -O - http://hwraid.le-vert.net/debian/hwraid.le-vert.net.gpg.key | sudo apt-key add -

   2. sudo apt-get install dellmgr lsiutil megamgr megacli megactl


I am now able to view the PERC 4/Di with the "Dellmgr" package! Appreciate your help!

Josh,


Just to help anyone else out so this is all on DELL forums/answers:


HERE IS THE STEPS I USED TO INSTALL DELL OMSA/DELLMGR:

STEP ONE:

EDIT /etc/apt/sources.list with following adjustments:

Replace us.archive.ubuntu.com with old-releases.ubuntu.com for each line shown in editor.

Replace security.ubuntu.com with old-releases.ubuntu.com

for each line shown in editor.

ADD THE FOLLOWING LINKS:

# DELL OMSA

deb http://ftp.sara.nl/pub/sara-omsa dell sara

#LSI HWRAID - PERC 4/Di

deb http://hwraid.le-vert.net/debian wheezy main

THEN RUN THE FOLLOWING COMMANDS:

wget http://ftp.sara.nl/debian_sara.asc sudo apt-key add debian_sara.asc
wget -O - http://hwraid.le-vert.net/debian/hwraid.le-vert.net.gpg.key | sudo apt-key add -

sudo apt-get update

_______________________________________________________________________________________________

STEP TWO:

Install modules
sudo modprobe ipmi_msghandler
sudo modprobe ipmi_devintf
sudo modprobe ipmi_si

Pre-load modules on startup/boot:
sudo -i
echo "ipmi_msghandler" >> /etc/modules
echo "ipmi_devintf" >> /etc/modules
echo "ipmi_si" >> /etc/modules
exit

________________________________________________________________________________________________

STEP THREE:


Run the following commands to setup DELL OMSA:

PreRequisites:

sudo apt-get install libstdc++5 alien unzip sysfsutils

Install IPMI tools;
sudo apt-get install openipmi sudo apt-get install ipmitool Install OMSA dependancies: sudo apt-get install snmp snmpd

sudo apt-get install -f procmail rpm

Install OMSA:

wget ftp://ftp.sara.nl/pub/outgoing/dell/binary-i386/dellomsa_5.5.0-5_i386.deb

dpkg -i dellomsa_5.5.0-5_i386.deb

wget http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/pool/main/g/gcc-3.3/libstdc++5_3.3.6-20_i386.deb

sudo dpkg --force-architecture -i libstdc++5_3.3.6-20_i386.deb

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.5 /lib/libstc++.so.5

sudo ldconfig

sudo /etc/init.d/dataeng enablesnmp
NOTE: snmpd must be restarted to activate changes to /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf
Data Engine SNMP enabled

sudo /etc/init.d/snmpd restart
 * Restarting network management services:
   ...done.

sudo /etc/init.d/snmpd restart

sudo /etc/init.d/dataeng restart
sudo /etc/init.d/dsm_om_connsvc start

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

update-rc.d dsm_om_connsvc defaults

________________________________________________________________________________________________


LAST STEP:


INSTALL DELLMGR AND OTHER RAID TOOLS
:

sudo apt-get install dellmgr lsiutil megamgr megacli megactl megaraid-status

________________________________________________________________________________________________

 

After that's all completed, you should be able to login to DELL OMSA via web browser @:

https://IP:1311

THEN...

Run "Dellmgr" to "Check Consistenancy" and see if there any failed HDD status.
