When providing multiple physical disks for the "create virtual disk" command, do not separate the disks with spaces. For example, "-ad=1:4, 1:5" causes an error. The correct way to input multiple physical disks is "ad=1:4,1:5,1:6" or "-ad=1:4:0,1:5:0,1:6:0". If you change the controller mode from SCSI to RAID mode, data loss may occur. Back up any data you require before changing the modes.
Operating System Installation Issues Installation of legacy Red Hat Enterprise Linux operating systems may fail due to lack of support for new hardware. Modify the '%post' section of "ks.cfg" to update to a newer version of the kernel or use driver disk to install drivers. The Red Hat Enterprise Linux operating system installation may fail on systems equipped with multiple RAID and/or SCSI controllers, whether installed on the system board or in PCI slots.
Instrumentation Issues The "/opt/dell/srvadmin" directory in the DTK ISO image should be writable. It enables the instrumentation services to work properly.
