SCO OS 6 Driver for LSIL SAS1064E Raid Controller

Hi all,

A client has an SCO OpenServer Server 6.0, that is running on an HP ProLiant Box and they lost the root password.
Its equipped with a Doal-Core Intel Pentium Processor. They don't have any media or emergency disk anymore.

I tried to boot with the CD Rom, then "Tools", then exit to a shell, but I can’t mount the HD or the RAID, because the root fs is on a LSI Logic Raid controller MPT SAS1064E.

I found an LSIL driver for SCO OS 5.0.7 that I can load at boot time, but this version does not support this SAS RAID controller card.

Is there a driver for OS Server 5.07 for this LSIL SAS1064E RAID controller?

Or, is there a driver for OS 6.0 or for another version for SAS1064E and where can I find a boot load driver disk?
(Since it is installed and running on that box, there must be a driver somewhere!)

What device will the root filesystem be available, mounted to? (On regular startup it is at /dev/rroot)

Any help appreciated,
Thomas.

MFI(4)							   BSD Kernel Interfaces Manual 						    MFI(4)

NAME
mfi -- LSI MegaRAID SAS driver SYNOPSIS
To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following lines in your kernel configuration file: device pci device mfi Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the following line in loader.conf(5): mfi_load="YES" DESCRIPTION
This driver is for LSI's next generation PCI Express SAS RAID controllers. Access to RAID arrays (logical disks) from this driver is pro- vided via /dev/mfid? device nodes. A simple management interface is also provided on a per-controller basis via the /dev/mfi? device node. The mfi name is derived from the phrase "MegaRAID Firmware Interface", which is substantially different than the old "MegaRAID" interface and thus requires a new driver. Older SCSI and SATA MegaRAID cards are supported by amr(4) and will not work with this driver. Two sysctls are provided to tune the mfi driver's behavior when a request is made to remove a mounted volume. By default the driver will disallow any requests to remove a mounted volume. If the sysctl dev.mfi.%d.delete_busy_volumes is set to 1, then the driver will allow mounted volumes to be removed. A tunable is provided to adjust the mfi driver's behaviour when attaching to a card. By default the driver will attach to all known cards with high probe priority. If the tunable hw.mfi.mrsas_enable is set to 1, then the driver will reduce its probe priority to allow mrsas to attach to the card instead of mfi. HARDWARE
The mfi driver supports the following hardware: o LSI MegaRAID SAS 1078 o LSI MegaRAID SAS 8408E o LSI MegaRAID SAS 8480E o LSI MegaRAID SAS 9240 o LSI MegaRAID SAS 9260 o Dell PERC5 o Dell PERC6 o IBM ServeRAID M1015 SAS/SATA o IBM ServeRAID M1115 SAS/SATA o IBM ServeRAID M5015 SAS/SATA o IBM ServeRAID M5110 SAS/SATA o IBM ServeRAID-MR10i o Intel RAID Controller SRCSAS18E o Intel RAID Controller SROMBSAS18E FILES
