If you use the installer on the link it should work fine except for what was mentioned on the installation report. In this case, it is just a text file, documentation, meant for human consumption. Solution is to install firmware-linux-nonfree. This patch will get called only once for each controller. To enable this feature of hpsa, the module parameter hpsa. More details are available in this HP-provided document. Fixed wrong usage of a pointer for sysfs symlink.

Your distribution may differ. This feature has been removed, as any Smart Arrays not known to cciss are now presumed to be claimed by the hpsa driver. See the “st” man page for more details.
Fixed race condition that could show up during driver init. Amart did not happen to me, but should be mentioned here After a reboot all works as expected and all the devices show also up with lsscsi.
Here’s the man page. The hpsa driver is a SCSI driver, while the cciss driver is a block driver.
HP/ProLiant – Debian Wiki
Arrayprobe offsite makes a report of events recorded by Smartarray contollers. The hpsa driver is available in the kernel. Fixed a panic that could arise during an insmod and rmmod of the cciss driver. In the case of kernels with cciss and hpsa drivers which do have overlapping sets of supported controllers, by default, cciss will claim these devices if it is loaded prior to hpsa which it normally will be.
Use these for 2. Create a directory and unpack the tarball. Use these for systems using 2. The intent with newer kernels 2. See post 3 in this thread at linuxquestions which is a rough howto for CentOS.

This new driver will support new Smart Array products going forward, and the cciss driver will eventually be deprecated.
System will beep before bootloader starts however.
After installation and boot from internal storage some fixes: If necessary, deb package will compile kernel as well. To avoid this, you can modify your install image to include the needed firmware.

With using a kernel version 2. The hpsa driver has the ability to claim unknown Smart Arrays, however this is turned off by default so that it does not try to claim older controllers meant to be claimed by the cciss driver. Alternatively, you can obtain non-official CD images with external firmware loading enabled; see Firmware.
See these search results from hp. The earlier fix would be called anytime something changed. So far, I haven’t had any luck duplicating this problem. Fixed a bug found by the L1 test suite. The installer will detect the absence of this firmware and prompt you for it at install-time.
Debian package only builds binary cciss module. X tarballs Last updated November 01,latest version is 3. BTW, if you happen across a 2. Solution is to install firmware-linux-nonfree. Solution is to install firmware-linux-nonfree Jessie? Additionally, note that the driver will not engage the SCSI core at linjx time. Adding “nomodeset” to kernel command line works around the issue in Stretch.
Worked fine, no firmware required.
