Doing a reinstall did not solve the problem, probably needed to do a "linux scsi" or something at install startup ??? I did not have to do a "scsi" on the startup command line on our SCSI RAID servers they were fine installing Fedora. Maybe because they boot on SCSI ??? Anyone set me straight on this area ?If the scsi module was not previously loaded then the initrd did not know how to configure the new adapters. Using scsi on the kernel line told it to load the scsi modules. The servers that had scsi installed when the OS was installed already 'knew' about the modules needed. A server that did not already have scsi installed would not automatically load the module so you had to tell the kernel scsi was needed. To fix that you need to make sure the scsi module is loaded either from the kernel line or from a line in modprobe.conf for now. A kernel update done after the scsi module is active should put it into the initrd image and should automatically handle that afterward.
Does that mean if I install Fedora using 'linux scsi' then it will use an initrd with scsi drivers installed in the image ?
