[Linux-PowerEdge] Dell Perc S130

Hi,

RHEL 7.2, SLES 12 SP1 and SLES 11 SP4 have support for S130. Support here means that S130 provides pre-boot configuration options to configure md raid VD in BIOS environment and boot from the VD. In the OS, software raid is enabled by md raid driver. There is no S130 related driver in OS. Please refer to S130 sections “Linux RAID” and Configuring Linux RAID” in the S130 user guide, available here - http://topics-cdn.dell.com/pdf/poweredge-rc-s130_User's%20Guide_en-us.pdf

Hope this clarifies the details.

>> SWRAID Controller S130 is not supported in Linux.

Hi Souvik,

The support as described above was added recently.

With Regards,
Narendra K

Two completely opposite answers, both from Dell employees.  This is really confusing and one or both of you should figure out which of you is right and set the record straight.

Rich, which Linux distro are you using?

RHEL 7.2 and SLES 11 SP4 and newer have PERC S130 drivers available https://access.redhat.com/downloads/content/69/ver=/rhel---7/7.2/x86_64/product-software (requires Red Hat login) https://drivers.suse.com/dell/Dell_PowerEdge_13G/sle-11-sp4-x86_64/1.0/install-readme.html

Can anyone from Dell tell me if there is Linux support for PERC S130?  My understanding this is only supported on Windows.

Any other workaround for this would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Rich
