SubjectRe: CCISS driver and disk failure...
Hi David-

I noticed that the disk array component of this stuff actually does not
require the kernel modules, which is good news. So, you should be able to
install the 'cmafdtn', 'cmastor', 'cpqhealth' and 'ucd-snmp' RPMs from
compaq and monitor your drives via SNMP without using their darn kernel
modules. I assume that it's communicating with the array via the cciss
driver in some way.

Hope this helps.
