We have a little monster, a HP Blade BL20.
It has two Xeon processor at 2.8 GHz and
a QLogic 2312 SCSI controller a lot of memory.
Now, I cannot make FreeBSD run in it.
FreeBSD 4.10 seems to begin the booting
process but suddenly when it probes the
SCSI card it issues:
device_probe_and_attach: isp0: attach returned 6
I do not know what it means.
Fedora Core 3 also issues similar SCSI failures.
FreeBSD 5.3 and 5.2.1 get frozen and cannot even
finish to load the kernel. I tried to boot FreeBSD
5.3 from floppies also with the same result.
After a Google search I discovered that Linux
RedHat Advanced Server 3 can be installed but it
requires an updated SCSI driver after the installation.
Has anybody installed any version of FreeBSD
in a HP Proliant Blade BL20 ?
Can it be done?
Can you please help me?
Thanks in advance.
