This is an SR1560SF Intel System - S5520HC motherboard.
To be honest I never looked close in the bios,for actual "model",
It simply shows up in the RAID bios as Intel Embedded RAID 2 as the machine boots.
CentOS 6.5 installed the mpt2sas driver by default,if that means anything. From what i have read on the net that driver should install to an LSI RAID setup?
This is actually a Dell server,It is a refurb from Tigerdierct so I have never really figured out the actuall Dell model,number. the top of the machine has the SR1560SF sticker on it.
Sorry I dont have more explicit information.
If the system model is SR1560SF, then the board model should be S5400SF. CentOS 6.5 is not tested or supported on this board, thus no driver is provided. See Hardware, Memory, and Operating System Compatibility.
Yes ESRT2 driver is needed for RWC to work properly.
Now even for the latest generation product, the ESRT2 driver supports RHEL up to 6.4. You may try it for CentOS 6.4. Again it's not validated or supported on this board by Intel.
