No storage controllers detected.

Hi list,

I bought a shiny new MD1200 and a PERC H800 controller and installed the 
controller on a non-DELL system running openSUSE 11.3.
Anyone running OMSA and openSUSE 11.3 here? And non-DELL servers with 
PERC controllers?

But OMSA shows under "Storage" just "No storage controllers detected.".

I can see my RAID disk with fdisk:

# fdisk -l /dev/sdb

Disk /dev/sdb: 19998.4 GB, 19998441472000 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 2431338 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x00000000

Disk /dev/sdb doesn't contain a valid partition table

How can I make OMSA find or recognize the controller?

Many thanks for any help!
