Hi Manuel,

Thanks for sharing. I tried your recommended workaround (sed command on 
libstorelib.so.4.20.1-0, after backup original version), and indeed it 
works on my PE R710, with Perc 6/i. I restarted the service 'dataeng'. 
Previously, I had the message 'no controller found'. Now it is :

# omreport storage controller
  Controller  PERC 6/i Integrated(Embedded)

ID                                            : 0
Status                                        : Ok
Name                                          : PERC 6/i Integrated

I hope it will be included in future versions of OMSA 8.x.

Thanks a lot !
