Description Jarod Wilson 2007-02-06 22:03:15 UTC
Description of problem:
I've got a box with a Silicon Image 3114 SATA dmraid controller on it, with 4x
160GB drives attached. In the sil bios, I've created a RAID10 array (298GB in
size). While dmraid does see a RAID10 set, it reports a size much bigger than it

# dmraid -s
*** Superset
name   : sil_ahacacadbhej
size   : 542416197632
stride : 256
type   : raid10
status : ok
subsets: 2
devs   : 4
spares : 0

Anaconda refuses to try to use the dmraid array, instead presenting the
individual drives to install on. On vt4, this error gets logged:

<4>device-mapper: table: device /dev/sda too small for target

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
dmraid 1.0.0.rc14

How reproducible:
Set up RAID10 array in sil bios, boot current rawhide installer

Additional info:
If so desired, I can hook this box up to a serial console, and/or boot it off a
live cd and provide remote access.

Hrm, bz has been overlooked it seems.
In case you still have access to that configuration, please prvide files
created by "dmraid -rD" in a bzip2/tarball sil-bz227574-raid10.tar.bz2.

Comment 2 Jarod Wilson 2007-10-24 19:50:24 UTC
Unfortunately, that motherboard is toast, so I no longer have any way to
reproduce the problem. FWIW, it was an Asus K8N-DL motherboard (dual socket 940
