I've tried to install FC8 on a fresh x3550 7978 BCG machine with serveraid8k-i raid controller onboard and SAS disk. When I got to the partitioning stage, I got a message from aacraid module saying "Host adapter reset request. SCSI hang?" and the machine froze.
We've updated all the firmwares on the server, but to no avail.
The only workaround that seems to help is switching PHY Rate to 1.5Gbps in Serveraid's controller's configuration utility during boot.
Is there any way to make it work at 3.0 Gbps?
