I have been trying to deploy this ISO on a new server, but it fails whether or not I setup RAID via iDRAC (Motherboard) or FreePBX sets up its own SW RAID1.
When I choose “No RAID”, it doesn’t seem to detect the virtual disk created by iDRAC and creates 2x 500 GB Virtual Disks which in turn causes the server not to boot… Out of curiosity, I tried doing a normal install and get the following error:
Even updated BIOS and a few other drivers. Getting the error above when doing the normal “Full Install” and no booting if done via “No RAID”. I’ve done dozens of installs on Supermicro hardware successfully, this is the first one I’ve tried on a Dell and the experience is a bit surprising.
(This for a machine with a few harddrives but using ZFS raid1 and not the hardware raid.)
I suggest you reset your raids on boot to be individual raid0 drives, and use the “advanced” method bearing in mind the appropriate /dev/cciss/c* names of the devices. as the components of your raid(s)
I’ve tried with and without iDRAC configuring the RAID and still the same issue. Either no booting or I can’t proceed with the installation. I was able to install CentOS without any issues simply to test the hardware for any driver issues…
This is what I am getting if I let FreePBX configure using “Full Install”.
The FreePBX install can take some time. It downloads, compiles, and installs, a pile of NodeJS stuff, and on a 1950 (I think that’s what you said it was) it could take QUITE a while, with slow disks and a slow CPU.
I’m going to have to put a ‘This can take a long time’ warning there.
Unfortunately, I was unable to install it this time (strangely enough) - it told me there were no drives, but the latest stable build worked perfectly and SIP is up and running… I had cleared the drives using the dd commands above like I had done before doing the CentOS 7 install, but no success this time.
