Hi there,

we have an issue with rear 1.14-3, trying to prepare DR for a HP Proliant Server.

The "rear -v mkbackup" went fine, and I can boot it up, but when doing recovery, hpraid.sh reports an error after successful restauration of the configuration:

Recreating HP SmartArray controller 0|B
Warning: stripesize is deprecated. Use stripsize instead.
Configuration restored successfully, reloading CCISS driver...
Could not configure an HP SmartArray controllers.

  1. View Relax-and Recover log...

The logfile has the following details:

... Engage SCSI on host /proc/driver/cciss/cciss0
/var/lib/rear/layout/hpraid.sh: line 63: echo: write error: No such device or address

Lines 60-64 in hpraid.sh read:

make the CCISS tape device visible

for host in /proc/driver/cciss/cciss?; do
Log "Engage SCSI on host $host"
echo echange scsi >$host

I commented out the echo command, and could go ahead with recovery.

Is this a bug in hpraid.sh?

Regards, Tom

In my opinion the engage should not be fatal, even when I think it ought to work in all cases.
