When I select either “Client System Information” or “Quick Host Registration and Inventory” the process hangs. Here’s what I see:
early console in decrompress_kernel
Decompressing Linux… Parsing ELF… done.
Booting the kernel.
Then it just sits there forever. Here’s what I’ve tried:
- Swapped video card for a known working card.
- Updated to the latest kernel via the “Kernel Updates” link.
- Recompiled my own kernel. I tried to throw in every network, hard drive, and raid driver I could find.
So far, it works with everything I’ve thrown at it except these T7600s. They’re using the onboard raid controller, and SATA hard drives (either SSD or regular, depending on the box).
If anyone has this configuration working, I’d love your input. Otherwise, does anyone have suggestions of how to troubleshoot this? The messages aren’t giving me enough information to even know where to start looking. I did read about a kernel option, something about “early message output” or something like that, but it was already enabled.
