|0013943||CentOS-7||kernel||public||2017-09-29 11:45||2017-12-30 18:51|
|Platform||ProLiant DL360e Gen8||OS||CentOS||OS Version||7.4.1708|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0013943: kernel panic with kernel version 3.10.0-693.2.2.el7.x86_64|
|Description||Kernel panic with HP 120i smart array controller (kernel 3.10.0-693.2.2.el7.x86_64 and storage controller driver kmod-hpvsa-1.2.12-112.rhel7u1.x86_64).|
Updating drivers (kmod-hpvsa-1.2.16-102.rhel7u3.x86_64), it doesn't display kernel panic error but system doesn't boot.
With previous kernel version (3.10.0-514.26.2.el7.x86_64), system boots perfectly.

|From the tag "rhel7u3" I'd guess it supports EL7.3 but not EL7.4. I suggest you ask HP for an updated version of the kmod package.|
I can confirm the same error on a HP Proliant Microserver Gen8 with an HP Dynamic Smart Array B120i.
I have installed kmod-hpvsa-1.2.14-113.rhel7u2.x86_64.rpm and also receive a kernel panic.
I have contacted support.
They told me that there is no driver support for CentOS and I should use AHCI mode.
So my last hope would be: Does the driver crashing under CentOS 7.4 imply it also crashing on newer RHEL version? (because RHEL is supported)
But this is no bug in CentOS and for further discussion this is maybe not the right place.
|If it works for RHEL 7.4 then it should also work for CentOS so if they have a rebuilt driver for RHEL 7.4 then that will probably work. However, having said that, even RH on their knowledge base recommend using AHCI mode and linux software RAID.|
HPE updated their driver.
The new driver is compatible with CentOS 7.4.

I suggest the issue can be marked resolved.
Thanks for the note. Now closing the ticket as 'resolved'.
