    Not doing it yet but a client of ours is thinking of doing it for a web based application and we are investigating it.

    Looking for someone currently running or testing Solaris 10 on an IBM BladeServer.
    I did have Solaris 10 on LS20 - just works, no problems.
    We did have some problems with Solaris 10 on LS21 with installation - it works now, just simple BIOS setting change is needed on blade. Then newer network driver is needed and it seems to work stable - we'll see in next few days (so far so good).

    I've running Solaris 10U3 on LS21 for about a month now and it works perfectly.

    HS21 with Storage Expansion

    ‏2007-01-19T16:38:41Z  
    Hi, I have a problem with a BladeCenter HS21 (8853-L3U) that is installed with an SAS Storage Expansion and a ServeRaid 8k.

    The server is installed in an Bladecenter Chassis (8677-3RU) with and Advanced Management Module (FW v1.25).

    The HS21 has two SAS internal disks configured in raid 1 with onboard controller (SAS 1064e) and it has operating system installed in it.

    In the expansion it has 2 disks configured in raid 1 with serve Raid 8k.

    The problem I´m having is that the HS21 and the blade generates an alert that hard disks in expansion are removed and then it makes a recovery from this.

    In serve Raid manager hard disks still optimal and access to data is avaible all time. I think is a false error.

    I hope someone can help me with this.

    I adjunct the error log from blade.

    Thanks

    Hello, I have changed the expansion and I had the same problem.
    Otherwise I open an PMH and the response is that there is going to be a BMC release in february that corrects this false error.

    Blade works fine and access to data is possible all time.

    Thanks for your help.

    In order to install RHEL 4 (any version) on the Bladecenter servers you need to use at least Release 4 or later. Earlier versions are not compatible/supported on the Bladecenter servers (lack of embedded drivers etc.).
