Hi,

I search compatibility list, for my old server IBM X3650-M4_7915 to install community edition for my lab environnement.

I don’t find and i think is not compatible but i’m note sure.

Also, we have controller ServeRAID M5110e on my server and i want to know if community edition enable replicator factory. JBOD mode is necessary for that ?

Thks

hey @MAXSOU , as far as I know, IBM X3650-M4_7915 is not supported. 

And for ServeRAID M5110e I will have to search a little. Allow me some time to do so.

It will work - I have CE running on a X3650 M2 server

 

  1. You will need to setup the RAID card to issues JBODs
  2. You might need the network driver after installation to connect to LAN - during installation you will get error /bnx2/bnx2-mips-xxxx.fw (I needed bnx2-mips-09-6.2.1b.fw)

 

Thanks for details markvanwyk ! we will try that then.

Hi @MAXSOU

Thanks!

Hi @nijezauzeto ,

Hello all,

And struck with hard disk selection window itself like while selecting the hard disk drive and the error is "CVM installation needs at least SSD hard disk" Have inserted SSD hard disk only but it detecting as HDD. Please suggest us your view on this issue..
