PowerEdge 2950 PERC 6/i (Mgia) (Mgia)

Hi Mgia,

I might be missing something, but my thinking is that you may be running
into the issue with the 64-bit OMSA version.  There is a known issue
with some of the older RAID cards and OMSA 6.5 that result in the "no
storage controllers found" issue.  I have worked around this on a couple
boxen by forcing the install of the 32-bit version of OMSA. 


This blog specifically mentions the PERC 4, so I may be completely
off-base here.
