Issues

Virtual Media Disconnect crashes kernel

Kernel crashes have been observed when ejecting Virtual CD-ROM media is ejected, even when the media is umounted. The suggested workaround is to shutdown the OS before ejecting the Virtual CD-ROM. Observed on an iLO 2 system running kernel-image-2.6.8-12-amd64-generic (2.6.8-16sarge5hpde1).

Remote Serial Console hangs

The boot sequence has been observed to hang when Linux is configured to use the Remote Serial Console. Sending data to the serial console (e.g., pressing enter) will allow the console output to proceed. Observed on an iLO 2 system running kernel-image-2.6.8-12-amd64-generic (2.6.8-16sarge5hpde1).

Panic loading cciss driver

The em64t-p4 flavor kernel has been observed to panic when attempting to load the cciss driver:

 SCSI subsystem initialized
 HP CISS Driver (v 2.6.10)
 cciss: using DAC cycles
 ACPI: PCI interrupt 0000:06:00.0[A] -> GSI 16 (level, low) -> IRQ 16
 cciss cciss0: SendCmd Invalid command list address returned! (2)
 ciss cciss0: SendCmd Timeout out, No command list address returned!
 cciss: unable to determine firmware version of controller
 cciss cciss0: SendCmd Invalid command list address returned! (2)
 cciss cciss0: SendCmd Timeout out, No command list address returned!
 cciss: report logical volume command failed
 Using anticipatory io scheduler
 pivot_root: No such file or direKernel panic: Attempted to kill init!
 ctory

If you experience this problem, it is recommended to use the amd64-generic kernel instead.

Grub fails to install

Two different issues have been observed to cause this problem:

  • The Debian 2.6.8 kernel has a [http://dannf.org/bloggf/tech/cciss-grub-real-fix.html bug] in the block layer that causes certain ioctls to fail. The HPDE installer includes the fix for this bug.

  • Grub may also fail if the partition that holds /boot extends past the first 512MB. You can identify this situatin by choosing "Execute a Shell" in the main menu and running 'cat /target/tmp/grub*'. If you see the message Error 18: Selected cylinder exceeds maximum supported by BIOS, try creating a separate /boot partition that resides within the first 512MB of your disk.
