Off late I'm finding that the latest version [17.01.2015.1001, 16.03.2015.0519, 16.03.2014.1212] ESRT2 RAID driver for Linux [Download ESRT2 RAID driver for Linux*] is not functional either with RHEL 6.x/ CentOS 6.x. I had old version [15.xx] that use to work fine.
Tried the same on several Intel boards like S2600CW2, S1200V3RPS, S2600CP2, S2400CW2 but to no avail.
Gyst of the activities in order as follows:
Just after it reads the driver diskette, it shows "This driver is invalid for this version of OS" warning message.
The installation can continue but would not detect the LUNs. However, if nodmraid is not mentioned, all the individual physical drives (not LUNs) are shown with /dev/mapper/ddf* format.
Please help in understanding the correct procedure of driver installation.
