Description

Hey.

On https://www.smartmontools.org/wiki/Supported_RAID-Controllers it says:

-d cciss,N /dev/cciss/cXd0

and

-d cciss,N /dev/cissX

for CCISS (HP/Compaq Smart Array Controller).

However, it seems that /dev/cciss/ is no longer present with current drivers.

But... it seems that one can simply use *any* device that is exported from that controller, e.g. /dev/sda (if that is).

Perhaps just add a note to the wiki (and other documentation) that this works just as well, which may not be immediately obvious.

Thanks,
Chris.

I mean current drivers in Linux (at least as of 5.10).

comment:2 Changed 3 months ago by calestyo

Oh and one further thing... it *seems* that the N corresponds to what HP itself, respectively the ssacli tool calls "Bay".

comment:3 Changed 3 months ago by calestyo

Actually,... Bay-1 = N ... cause the Bay starts at 1.
