Does the PERC H200 controller in my Dell PowerEdge Server work with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4?

Solution Unverified - Updated -


  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4


  • The H200 PERC RAID controller requires device drivers that are only present in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.4 and above.


  • Use a supported controller and the software RAID functionality provided by Red Hat Enterprise Linux*.  Software RAID may be implemented at time of installation, and the current documentation for that can be found here:****
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 System Administration Guide
