I have a Dell PowerEdge Server R620 with 64G of Ram and 2T of HD Space. I am wondering what version of CE is supported on this older server. I downloaded the latest one and the install errored out. 


Thank you,

Yes , it will work but what is your RAID card ? is it PERCH700 ? then you will have to make some changes to work 

Error will be “it will tell min preq not satisfied. bcz HDD is not detected”

Make a configuration changes on file to get the HDD detected on Kernel Level 

Follow below steps to make it work.

login to root b4 install and do 
dmesg | grep sda
or 
dmesg | grep sdb

and  find the HDD. (non SSD) identify using the size of disk.
if you found sdb is the non ssd HDD then run

echo 0 > /sys/bloc/sdb/queue/rotational

exit from root and then install. it will work

Thank you, I will try that. Appreciate it.

Corrected one for the last cmd → echo 0 > /sys/block/sdb/queue/rotational

Finally got to try this out @Paul Ilavarasu. Worked like a charm. Thank you.
