Hi everyone - i'm pretty pissed by now searching 2nd day for a solution.. Story is simple - i'm installing 2 routers on HP dl 365 server [opteron 2218 he] with hardened kernel. Problem is, that everything seems to be fine with boot until kernel wants to mount root partition.. Then whatever bios upgrades i do, controller flash, or drivers i enable/disable it will not see this [...] logical unit.

Starting from casual gentoo minimal or other rescue cd brings me standard entries with cciss drives. As i did most simple setup having single root partition as /dev/cciss/c0d0p1 as root, (and boot) and tried both grub and lilo, i ended up having the same problem :

VFS : Cannot open root device ("null") or unknown-block(0,0): error -6
Please append a correct "root=" boot partitionl here are the available partitions:

then it lists units as :

cciss/c0d0 - controller ?
and then two partitions :
cciss/c0d0p1 and cciss/c0d0p2 as swap.

I tried changing root=/dev/cciss!c0d0p1 as well as enabling / disabling various kernel scsi and driver related options..

I'm running out of options.. PLease - if someone have solved this issue - let me know..

(btw i installed several boxes on older kernels on dl360g4p but those were on scsi controllers. , also had no bigger issue with HP DL385 g2 with sas controller (pretty sure p400i ??) on gento-vserver sources while ago.)

I'm using standard hardware setup from HP - nothing out of ordinary. (p400i with 256 MB no BBU )

i sucessfully installed gentoo on USB dongle on this machine.. so it is purelly kernel/driver thing.
https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-879881-highlight-cciss.html does not help either.

OK - update :

I tried normal vanilla sources from server profile. Still have the same issue :

6800 78116062 cciss/c0d0 (driver?)
6801 75192201 cciss/c0d0p1 000000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000
6802 2923830 cciss/c0d0p2 00000000[...]

(sorry i use remote console and i can't copy paste stuff...)
Anybody? any clue ?

Try looking up the driver you need here: http://kernel-seeds.org/working.html

exactly as i'm using

103c3230 Yes Hewlett-Packard Company Smart Array Controller cciss v2.6.25-

this means it is cciss as i said - problem is that as reported - kernel sees device but not see /root .. any ideas?

tried today vserver sources (2.6.39 or sth) and removed /added some options like fusion , HP proliant hardware , also smart array2 on/off no effect. it is identical as other installs. i'll try to copy config from 385 g1 kernels (there is p6 array but still can try it...) i'm using ext3 filesystem with all ext3 options built in into kernel.

here is list
