Hi Franck,

a) with the help of [ CODE ] ... [ / CODE ] blocks (without the blanks) surrounding your output, the post would be much better readable. If using the forum via browser, the advanced editor offers the "#" button, which will convert the then marked block accordingly.

b) "lsscsi" would offer a much quicker overview of the recognized devices ;)

c) I see that the cdrom module is loaded. Assuming you did not load it manually, why do you think your CDROM drive is not recognized? If you cannot identify it in the "lsscsi" output, some more details might be helpful: What type of CDROM drive do you have? Does the server recognize the drive (i.e. during BIOS boot), were you ever able to access it (i.e. during install)?

Regards,
Jens

Hi Jens,
Thank for your response and your advice to use the forum .
That is internal DVD standard deliver by HP on DL360p gen8 server .
At the BIOS level, the dvd is OK and i can boot on cdrom .
The problem is after the install impossible to mount automatically or manually

Hi Franck,

> The problem is after the install impossible to mount automatically or manually

from what I can tell, you should be able to see an according entry in /proc/scsi/scsi representing the CDROM drive (while I still prefer "lsscsi" for that :) ). Might it be that the drive is in some way non-standard and requires a driver? What's in /var/log/messages about the drive and/or the port it uses, especially during the system boot phase. Are there any error messages? Does "hwinfo" give details that may be helpful?

Regards,
Jens

hi Jens
My pb is resolved by :
The server supports Advanced Host Controller Interface (AHCI); and the ROM-Based Setup Utility selection for AHCI-capable controllers is changed from the default selection of Enable Legacy Support to Enable SATA AHCI Support.

You must disable AHCI functionality and use Legacy SATA Mode.
On effected ProLiant servers, the user must change the default SATA mode via the ROM Based Setup Utility (RBSU) Embedded SATA Configuration menu to the Enable Legacy SATA Support mode.

Franck
