Lsi sas 3008 driver
By jbartlettFebruary 12, in Storage Devices and Controllers. I don't know if it is worth the money, but WOW. Sorry I've got nothing constructive to add but I'm just amazed. The other 16 being from the LSI chip.
I did some researching on this specific chip, and I can't see any information about putting this in JBOD mode, it looks like you can get the chip in IT mode. However I could not find out if you could flash it yourself to IT mode.
I suspect it is and will work with unRAID, but it's better to check. Not sure why you'd want something like this over just using controller cards and a motherboard with a normal number of ports. It would definitely be cheaper than a board like this. Reason I say this is because my mb disables the 4 1x pcie slots if the pcie 4x slot is populated.
Holy smokes that's a nice mobo I did get it reflashed to IT mode and the 6 drives I have show up individually in debian. I got the firmware here from Supermicro's ftp site.
Then you need to go back and hit the link again. It also may or may not popout. Didn't know that you need to use dos-like command to switch to the usb drive. The uefi script failed to flash, so I went back later and executed the same commands from the script one at a time and it flashed ok. Also, since this is similar to the LSI i, I went there and downloaded all the files.
Could anyone point me to a way to configure the write caching? I'm still trying to figure that out. This is intel's ark page for the rs3uc This is the software download page and I'm thinking I may try flashing to intel's firmware.
The drives are all detected, but unRAID does not see them. I am also new to UEFI, so that confuses me a little. I thought this would be easy since the board had all the ports on it, and I would just need to move the drives over and be done with it. Just like everything I do, it turns out to be a real pain. Did I state this correctly?
Can anyone suggest an easy to use, out of the box, controller for this to work I have a 16 port Adapter, but it only likes drives 2TB or less? This repair keeps growing and growing in price. If write cache, you would need the cache memory on the HBA and a battery to support it. I do not think the supermicro card has the memory or connector for the battery. If you are looking for a cache drive, you would be better starting a new thread under the support sub forum for your version of unRAID.
I pulled 5 drives and placed them on the mobo SATA ports, and those show up. You can post now and register later. If you have an account, sign in now to post with your account.

This weekend is the forum upgrade so I will probably not spend a ton of time on the fix. What are you thinking in terms of write caching?
I may have misunderstood that part. Hi, thanks for the reply. That explains things, thanks. I'll start getting zfs set up. Oct 25, 43 Australia. Oct 13, 1, 52 The device. By default, the mfi 4 driver will detect these controllers.
To change the firmware fault check timer value for a specific mrsas driver instance, set the following tunable value in loader. The following bits have the described effects: 0x01 Enable informational prints.
With the above design in place, the mfi 4 driver will attach to a MR-Fusion card given that it has a higher priority than mrsas. Before changing this default driver selection policy, LSI advises users to understand how the driver selection policy works. LSI's policy is to provide priority to the mfi 4 driver to detect MR-Fusion cards, but allow for the ability to choose the mrsas driver to detect MR-Fusion cards. LSI recommends setting hw.
For those customers who are using a MR-Fusion controller for the first time, LSI recommends using the mrsas driver and setting hw.
Changing the default behavior is well tested under most conditions, but unexpected behavior may pop up if more complex and unrealistic operations are executed by switching between the mfi 4 and mrsas drivers for MR-Fusion.
Switching drivers is designed to happen only one time.
Although multiple switching is possible, it is not recommended. The user may see different device names when switching from mfi 4 to mrsas. This behavior is Functions As Designed and the user needs to change the fstab 5 entry manually if they are doing any experiments with mfi 4 and mrsas interoperability. The mrsas driver is cam 4 aware and devices associated with mrsas can be seen using camcontrol 8.
The mfi 4 driver does not understand the cam 4 layer and it directly associates storage disks to the block layer. Desai lsi.

But here we go. Once you know it's simple. I'm sure that many users already does figured this out as well.
There is also a community thread on this, but I'm not really a forum person. I'm sure other threads exists which talk about SMIS provider.
Now if you look through the hardware status here is a view via vSphere Web Client you can see the hardware status. When picking up hardware for a home lab you're often limited by your budget or the WAF factor it's tightened together, right?
By picking up certified hardware sometimes isn't enough. You should make sure that the hardware is on the HCL and that there is a management software for the platform you willing to use Windows, Linux, VMware… which can actually monitor the status.

If FreeNAS doesn't complain, all is well. For those of us with a HBA built into our motherboard, should we be waiting for the motherboard manufacturer to publish firmware updates themselves before we install them? Ceetan Member.
