[Bug 1550481] Re: hpsa driver causing kernel panics on HP ProLiant DL385p Gen8


Here's some version information, taken from the machine's iLO:

Product Name 	ProLiant DL385p Gen8
UUID 	37303137-3332-584D-5134-303830335450
Server Serial Number 	MXQ40803TP
Product ID 	710723-001
System ROM 	A28 02/06/2014
Backup System ROM 	11/02/2013
Integrated Remote Console 	.NET    Java
License Type 	iLO 4 Advanced
iLO Firmware Version 	1.51 Jun 16 2014

Actually, I just saw that the iLO is giving me a "failed" status on the
HP Smart Array P420i Controller (firmware version 5.42), although all
the detailed diagnostics below it on the page show green. (I'm attaching
a screen shot.) I don't see any more diagnostic details in the web UI.
If there's something else I can check to help track this down, please
tell me.

** Attachment added: "Screen shot of the web UI showing a failure diagnostic in the iLO."

  hpsa driver causing kernel panics on HP ProLiant DL385p Gen8

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Doing regression testing on Ubuntu 14.04.4, we've found a big one: An
  HP ProLiant DL385p Gen8 kernel panics on startup with the default
  kernel for that version (4.2.0-27-generic). The server's display (see
  screen shot taken via its BMC's remote KVM) shows a kernel panic that
  seems to implicate the hpsa driver. This server boots and installs
  every Trusty release through 14.04.3 (with a 3.19.0-25 kernel) just

  I'm attaching log files from a 14.04.1 installation so that you can
  have some hardware information, and a screen shot of the kernel panic
  in 14.04.4.

  We (the server certification team) have access to the server for a
  limited period. Normally it's in OIL.
