Hi Rainer,

Yes, the storage controller shows up (in both cli and omsa-webgui enviroments). With OMSA 6.2 it was possible to do a 'yum install mptlinux' to get the latest and greatest when it comes to SAS 6/iR Adapter drivers, but this driver package has gone missing when OMSA 6.3 came.

Driver Version                               			 : 3.04.13rh
Minimum Required Driver Version              	 :

Best regards,

Bob Huisman

Apart from the firmware update problem - I think you can just enable the right repo here:

Do you see the raid controller?
# omreport storage controller
