on the server that works:
# modinfo dcdbas
vermagic: 2.6.9-5.ELsmp SMP 686 REGPARM 4KSTACKS gcc-3.4
while the servers that dont:
# modinfo dcdbas
description: Dell Systems Management Base Driver (version 5.6.0-2)
version: 5.6.0-2 1F79360CAB417AD1A5B5329
author: Dell Inc.
vermagic: 2.6.9-55.ELsmp SMP 686 REGPARM 4KSTACKS gcc-3.4

Subject: instsvcdrv/dcdbas fails to start
We have three PowerEdge 2800 servers running RHEL4. Yesterday we updated from RHEL4 Update 2 to Update 5. When we rebooted, on two of the servers, the instsvcdrv service failed to start. The log file says
# cat /var/log/dcdbas.log
mknod: wrong number of arguments
Try `mknod --help' for more information.
The script seems to be getting one of the parameters from /proc/devices and on the server that it does work I can find the dcdbas device
listed. For example:
# lsmod | grep dcdba
dcdbas 41632 2
# grep dcdbas /proc/devices
during boot up:
Jun 24 12:07:15 wms1 kernel: dcdbas: disagrees about version of symbol struct_module
Jun 24 12:07:15 wms1 kernel: dcdbas: module license 'unspecified' taints kernel.
Jun 24 12:07:15 wms1 kernel: dcdbas: Unknown symbol get_user_size
Jun 24 12:07:15 wms1 kernel: dcdbas: Unknown symbol put_user_size
Jun 24 12:07:15 wms1 instsvcdrv: dcdbas device driver loaded
On the servers that it doesnt work I get:
Jun 24 12:25:55 wms2 kernel: dcdbas: Dell Systems Management Base Driver (version 5.6.0-2)
Jun 24 12:25:55 wms2 instsvcdrv: mknod failed for dcdbas device driver. See /var/log/dcdbas.log for output from mknod.
Jun 24 12:25:57 wms2 kernel: dcdbas: Dell Systems Management Base Driver (version 5.6.0-2)
Jun 24 12:25:57 wms2 instsvcdrv: mknod failed for dcdbas device driver. See /var/log/dcdbas.log for output from mknod.
and both /proc/devices and lsmod do not show the
I can manually load the driver but /proc/devices still doesnt list it afterwards.
All servers are running 2.6.9-55.ELsmp and OpenManage 4.5 is installed.
Any ideas and/or suggestions?
