Description GeoffLeach 2005-06-26 22:14:51 UTC
Description of problem:
I have an Adaptec SCSI board and a Promise SATA controller on the MB. Anaconda
recognises both and loads the appropriate drivers.  However (this is the
problem) it sees the Adaptec first, and assigns the disks on it to sda and sdb.
Unfortunately, the wrong choice for an upgrade.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Upgrade with appropriate hardware config
Actual results:
Adapted controller's disks get sda and sdb

Expected results:
Desired, actually. SATA disks get sda and sdb

Additional info:
Suggest allowing upgrade to assign the disk groups if more than one SCSI

You can load controllers in whatever order you prefer by booting with 'linux
noprobe' (or the more refined 'linux nostorage' to just not load storage
modules) and then manually load them in the order you want.
