    Re: RocketRAID 1740 - 8.04

    babeliak, could you tell me how you got the webgui up and running?

    I figured this much:
    # wget http://www.highpoint-tech.com/BIOS_D...4-8-080829.tgz
    # tar xzvf WebGui-Linux-v1.4-8-080829.tgz
    # cd WebGui-Linux-v1.4-8-080829/
    # sudo apt-get install alien
    # alien hptsvr-https-1.4-8.i386.rpm
    # sudo dpkg -i hptsvr-https_1.4-9_i386.deb

    and it all seems to work just fine, but I'll need to do something more to start the gui up right? The manual I look at just states that it would run on port 7402:

    "To run the management interface, start your browser and enter the following URL
    address:
    https://localhost:7402"

    Arrow Re: RocketRAID 1740 - 8.04

    I'm at the same point hedefalk... I have a RR2320 running on 8.04 32bit. I got the driver installed file and was able to create the volume/filesystem. It is up and running but i'd like the WebGUI to initialize the array and monitor its status.

    I downloaded the RPM packages from Highpoints site for the 2320 for the WebGUI v1.4-8, then I used alien to convert the RPM package to DEB, installed the package, then tried to access the webserver but got nothing... Tried manually launching the server and it says the driver is not loaded.

    Code:
    root@dvr:/tmp# alien --to-deb hptsvr-https-1.4-8.x86_64.rpm
    Warning: Skipping conversion of scripts in package hptsvr-https: postinst prerm
    Warning: Use the --scripts parameter to include the scripts.
    hptsvr-https_1.4-9_amd64.deb generated
    root@dvr:/tmp# dpkg -i hptsvr-https_1.4-9_amd64.deb
    Selecting previously deselected package hptsvr-https.
    (Reading database ... 40355 files and directories currently installed.)
    Unpacking hptsvr-https (from hptsvr-https_1.4-9_amd64.deb) ...
    Setting up hptsvr-https (1.4-9) ...
    
    Processing triggers for libc6 ...
    ldconfig deferred processing now taking place
    
    root@dvr:/tmp# hptsvr
    Driver is not loaded.
    Obviously something didnt run that was supposed to as there are missing files that the WebGUI readme says it needs:

    The following files will be installed/configured:

    /usr/bin/hptsvr - service program
    /etc/hptcfg - service config file
    /etc/rc.d/init.d/hptdaemon - service control script
    /usr/share/hpt/webguiroot - data files
    The /etc/hptcfg file doesn't exist and even trying the readme's suggestion of adding it manually by echoing the controller did nothing...

    If there is no /etc/hptcfg, you can add it manually by echo the controller
    driver name to /etc/hptcfg. For example for RR3220

    # echo hptiop >/etc/hptcfg
    The /usr/bin/hptsvr file is there, but there is no /etc/rc.d/ folder... I only have rc0.d through rc6.d folders and an rcS.d folder. None of which have an init.d subfolder.

    The /usr/share/hpt/webguiroot is there and everything in there looks normal...


    I'm sure one could manually add the necessary folders and files and get the web server running, but I really have no idea what is needed. Hopefully someone else here does and can share how to do it with us.

    Re: RocketRAID 1740 - 8.04

    This is inside MY hptcfg file, I remember, I had to use echo to create it:
    rr174x
    depending on your controller name, use echo command as follows:
    Code:
    echo <your driver module name> >/etc/hptcfg
    where <your driver module name> is rr174x in my case (I have RocketRaid1740) or different name depending on what model of controller card from HighPoint you have
    I remember I looked up my by displaying preinst.sh in gedit, it should be easy to look it up in any of those scripts (change path to fit yours to installation package):
    Code:
    georg@server:~$ ls /home/georg/install/rr174x-ubuntu-8.04-x86_64-v2.2.08.1017
    boot  install.sh  postinst2.sh  postinst.sh  preinst.sh  readme.txt
    Code:
    gedit /home/georg/install/rr174x-ubuntu-8.04-x86_64-v2.2.08.1017/install.sh
    Your desired and needed module name is
    #!/bin/sh
    # Post installation for debian 3.1 installation

    # THis is the module name. Should be valid.
    HPTMOD=rr174x
    you guessed it
    HPTMOD=<your driver module name>
    Code:
    georg@server:~$ hptiop
    bash: hptiop: command not found
    ...I guess this is an error in the manual, because
    Code:
    echo hptiop
    does write "hptiop" in /etc/hptcfg config file, which is of course useless.
    After this Raid Management should be working, I had no issues with it. Just that above is a bit tricky.

    .
    That above is the same for me.

    README says only this: "If you can't connect to local system, please check if hptsvr is running on
    the system. If not, start it manually by running "hptsvr""
    ...but must be run as SUDO:
    Code:
    sudo hptsvr
    I have performance issues with this RAID since kernel update. I did not do this, maybe that's the cause:
    "7 Rebuilding Driver Module for System Update
    When the system updates the kernel packages, the driver module rr174x.ko should be built
    and installed manually before reboot.
    To build the driver module, the RR174x open source package and the following building
    packages are needed: gcc, kernel-headers. The open source package can be got from
    HighPoint website: http://www.highpoint-tech.com while the building tools can be
    installed from the Ubuntu project website: http://www.ubuntu.com
    Note: the package version of kernel-headers should be the same to the version of updated
    kernel package.
    Refer to the REAME file distributed with HighPoint RR174x open source package on how
    to build and install the driver module.

    AHA, you must run it with sudo:
    Code:
    georg@server:~$ sudo hptsvr
    Otherwise you get "Driver is not loaded" error message:
    Code:
    georg@server:~$ hptsvr
    mknod: `/dev/rr174x0': Permission denied
    Driver is not loaded.

    Those drivers found on the Chinese website (see my post above), didn't work here, probably because I'm using Ubuntu 8.10 64bit. But there are drivers for up to 8.04, so they might work for you.

    This is what I did:
    Download the opensource driver:
    http://www.highpoint-tech.com/USA/bi...enSourcedriver
    Extract the files to a folder (I used: rr174x-linux-src-v2.1).
    Then do this in the terminal:

    After a reboot, the RAID was loaded. I'm a bit surprised it was so simple...


    gave me this:


    I guess this will also work for 8.04.
    Wow, redownloaded source (just to make sure, it's same version 2.2 ), unpacked, checked readme (note the latest tested linux kernel is 2.6.25, I'm running 2.6.24-24-generic), than:

    ~$ cd /home/georg/Desktop/rr174x-linux-src-v2.2/product/rr1740pm/linux
    ~$ sudo make install
    reboot and up and running full-speed again:

    Re: RocketRAID 1740 - 8.04

    I tried to install the opensource drivers on Karmic Koala (kernel 2.6.31-9), without success
    Has anybody managed to get those specific drivers (e.g. for ubuntu 9.04 x86_64) to work?

    edit:

    I installed Ubuntu 9.04 64bit, because that's the last version that HighPoint has drivers for. After the install, I installed every update from the update manager, which installed a new kernel.

    I rebooted, and then installed the RocketRaid drivers.

    sudo sh install.sh
    The install seemed to be successful and at the end, it said a reboot was needed. After the reboot, it seemed like the drivers were removed: nothing worked! It looked like the drivers were never installed (permanently?).

    I guess this is because the driver files that can be found in the "boot" folder of the install, are named "rr174x2.6.28-11-genericx86_64.ko.gz" and "rr174x2.6.28-11-serverx86_64.ko.gz", which are meant for kernel 2.6.28-11. So, I just renamed "rr174x2.6.28-11-genericx86_64.ko.gz" to "rr174x2.6.28-15-genericx86_64.ko.gz" (to match my current kernel version).

    After this, I reinstalled the driver (see above), rebooted, and voila: everything works!

    edit: you'll now it works when you see these lines (the second line being the most important: when it's not there, you did something wrong)
    The disk you insert is for linux kernel 2.6
    Update initrd file /boot/initrd.img-2.6.28-17-generic for 2.6.28-17-generic
    Please reboot the system to use the new driver module.
    My guess is this will also work on Ubuntu 9.10, but I haven't tried this yet. Enough OS installs for one day

    You saved my day once more, bvanaerde!

    I lost my raid after an upgrade, as described here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...94&postcount=2

    This was all i needed:
    $ uname -a
    Linux .... 2.6.28-15-server
    $ mv rocketraiddriversfolder/boot/rr174x2.6.28-11-serverx86_64.ko.gz rocketraiddriversfolder/boot/rr174x2.6.28-15-serverx86_64.ko.gz
    $ sudo rocketraiddriversfolder/install.sh
    $ sudo reboot now
    Back in business!

    Good stuff guys!
    Anyway I stay with 8.04 Hardy for longer support period.
    Do you use also Highpoint Web Management Console?
