Summary0016397: Card no longer supported by megaraid_sas
DescriptionHi,

My RAID card (LSI 9260-8i) is listed in

https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_enterprise_linux/8/html/considerations_in_adopting_rhel_8/hardware-enablement_considerations-in-adopting-rhel-8#removed-adapters_hardware-enablement

for the

megaraid_sas driver

Is it possible for CentOS to release a megaraid_sas_legacy to support such old cards.

I have installed RHEL 8 Developer Edition in the machine for testing and the RAID Array is not detected any more.

It was detected in CentOS 7.

I plan to install CentOS 8 once it is released.

thanks.
Steps To ReproduceInstall RHEL 8 on a machine with RAID card LSI 9260-8i

Take a look at this ELRepo blog:

for possible solution.

Will CentOS 8 dracut have the patch mentioned applied ?

It is not in RHEL 8.0, so not in CentOS. It may be in RHEL 8.1 but this remains to be seen.

As a CentOS user, you have two possible solutions.

One is to use the centosplus kernel (kernel-plus). It has patches that restore the drivers that have been removed from RHEL-8 kernels.

   mpt3sas (some PCI IDs)
   megaraid_sas (some PCI IDs)
   mptsas
   mptspi

Another is to ask CentOS to publish the patched dracut through the extras repo.

Closing as the original issue has been 'resolved'. May update this ticket if/when the dracut patch has landed.
