    Dear arun,

    Ubuntu is not supported for IBM servers. Use only supported OS or call to Ubuntu Support team:

        Hi arun,

        yes, you can install RHEL 5 x64 U7 (or new).

    I have no problem to install Ubuntu 12.04 on a x3550m4 with a m5110.

    If you really need support, the only way is to go to the biggest IBM rival... I'd never understand why IBM don't support Debian/Ubuntu, Linux is Linux and all there (extracted) binaries are working on Debian.

      @BenjaminD - what did you have to do to get 12.04 to recognize the RAID controller? When I try to install, it tells me I have no disks...
