Ran into a problem installing the 3DM2 (3ware raid management tool) on Ubuntu today.
Got an “” error when trying to run the install script.
After a bit of debugging, I figured out that the failing variable was in the “check architecture” section of the script… In my case, I simply stripped out the logic and put in the following text to just set variables to my specific setup:
## Check release. ## Get architecture set arch = `uname -m` set arch = "x86" set supported = "yes"
After that it worked fine… but once installed, the service wouldn’t start… due to the following error “Failed to create SSL context”.
I got that, installed it, went through the config script did a slight configuration change, and it actually worked this time. I think the problem was the “3dm2.pem” file (SSL cert).

Note: the default password is “3ware”
Much thanks to the following page for getting me going at several stopping points:
