Totally going to revive this old thread because my question is pretty much the same. I've got a RS2WG160 controller, but it still uses the RAID Web Console and I'm also trying to make it work in Openfiler 2.99. So to answer the OS/kernel, the OS is Openfiler which is a version of rpath, and my kernel version is 2.6.32-131.17.1.e16-0.11.smp.gcc4.4.x86_64
I've extracted the contents of the RPMs, giving me just the straight etc, opt and usr directories. Can I copy those to / and launch the web console? I'm only interested in having it run as a server so I can connect to the utility from another machine.
RAID Web Console 2 will have to be running on both systems to access remotely.
I don't know what you'll have to go through to install RWC2 on a system running Openfiler. You might be able to determine components installed and how through the supported RedHat* or SuSE* Linux installation routines.
The Intel® RAID Software User’s Guide has instructions for RedHat* Linux or SuSE* Linux, to the extent of unzipping the ir3_Linux_RWC2_v....tgz, reading the readme.txt file and running install.sh.
There is more of a detailed description for VMware installations if that helps.
