CentOS? More like GetBentOS, AMIRITE

Not sure I like it, but it’s pretty standard, close to RH which we actually have at work, easier updates than Slackware, so maybe…

But getting some sort of userspace CLI for the Serveraid 5i on the IBM X345 has been hell.  I finally found what I needed, though, at:

http://www-947.ibm.com/support/entry/portal/docdisplay?lndocid=MIGR-60624

The “IBM ServeRAID Support CD”.

Then:

mkdir iso

mount -o loop -t iso9660 ibm_fw_srsupp_7_12_14_anyos_32-64.iso iso

cp iso/linux/scsi/cmdline/ipssend /usr/bin

Voila.   Been looking at this occasionally over months – not that it wasn’t running, but I didn’t want to have to reboot and go into the firmware to do any RAID operations.  Now I can tell at a glance that the hardware hot-swap ability is on, what the status of the rebuild is, etc.

Lovely.
