Installing Ubuntu on a Compaq SmartArray.

Posted on: September 18, 2007

I have had endless problems recently trying to install Ubuntu 6.06 LTS Server on my HP Compaq DL360 which uses the Compaq SmartArray (v.1.50), Last night I managed to solve the problem and thought that I would post it on my blog for others to use if they are having the same problems…

After installing the OS, This is what I needed to do is outlined below:

Reboot the machine with the installation CD. Select “Rescue a Broken System”. Follow all the steps until it errors. This will present you with the advanced installation widget.

Select “Execute a Shell”

After you enter the console. You need to execute the following commands:

$ mkdir target
$ mount /dev/ida/c0d0p1 target
$ chroot target
$ echo "cpqarray" >> etc/mkinitramfs/modules
# for Ubuntu 6.10 etc, use the following command instead...
#$ echo "cpqarray" >> etc/initramfs-tools/modules

$ update-initramfs -u

Now simply reboot and your server should now run sweet 🙂 … It worked for me.
