I am not aware of the PERC2/DC driver being certified to run OPS. Where

Zafar, Sudhir? Maybe one of you could shed some light on the working
configurations of OPS/Linux on our hardware?

Have you checked the firmware settings on both cards? Is "cluster mode"

  If each of us have one object, and we exchange them,
     then each of us still has one object.
  If each of us have one idea,   and we exchange them,
     then each of us now has two ideas.
