3ware/AMCC 8006-2 and Ubuntu Dapper Drake LTS 6.06

Posted by Treg in HOWTO Ubuntu, Linux, Tech

Lately I installed an Ubuntu Dapper LTS 6.06 server with a 3ware 8006-2 sata raid controller. I wanted to use the CLI and the 3DMD raidcontroller software. So I downloaded the software on the website, installed it, but it just refused to work, complaining about wrong drivers. I suppose the drivers into kernel 2.6.15.x are good enough, in fact they are _to_ good/new. So I started to find a solution. I found one by downloading the newest CLI version 9.4.1.

The 3DMD tool wouldn’t work either, so I tried to install the 3DM2 tool. It failed because the installer didn’t generate a .pem file. So I searched some repositories with 3DM2 binaries and found a debian based package.


I just had do install it with dpkg and it works perfectly now.

    Random unrelated 8006-2 question: Have you had any luck/issues running this card with drives larger than 500GB? Are you aware of anyone else who has, one way or another?

    I’m sorry, those drives are smaller than 500GB. Checkout the 3ware site to solve those problems and check the new firmware/drivers.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
