  1. I plan to buy the Microserver Gen8 with integrated Smart Array B120i RAID controller. And replacing the CPU to a Xeon E3-1230 v2. So my question, is this conroller working well on ESXi with DirectI/O Passthrough? Has anybody any experience with it?
  2. Which utility is that? Please send me a link. The current SAS3IRCU utility can't do that.
  3. Yes. Exactly not randomly, but always the same order: Slot 1 --> Drive 1 Slot 2 --> Drive 4 Slot 3 --> Drive 3 Slot 4 --> Drive 2 Yes, they are a 4+4+4 config. An expander would be waste of money and unnecessary. Check these videos. It can be see the 3 SFF-8087 cables RS18016XS+ RS3614xs
  4. Yes, my Adaptec is a SAS 12Gb card. I'm using SFF-8643 to SFF-8643 cables, because my backplane have 3x SFF-8643 connectors and not direct attached SATA. As i know this cables have sideband integrated. I've tested some cables, that maybe they have different pinouts, but not. Same problem. LSI00409 LSI00413 Intel AXXCBL380HDHD Adaptec 2282500-R After that, i found this: https://docs.oracle.com/cd/E19045-01/blade.6000disk/820-4922-16/z40000191018657.html PS: Synology Rachmount has not 2 but 3 SAS cables to backplane connected.
  5. I've tested and i have the same issue with drive numbering. In the BIOS of the LSI card the drive order is correct, but after boot in the OS the drive order is wrong: Slot 1 --> Drive 1 Slot 2 --> Drive 4 Slot 3 --> Drive 3 Slot 4 --> Drive 2 I thought it's just because of the very old version of mpt3sas driver in 5644.4 Then i've tried the latest release of today 5644.5. It has updated mpt3sas driver (the latest version P11). But unfortunately same issue. I've tested it on Debian as well, and same issue. So it's not an XPE problem. After that i've tried it with my Adaptec HBA 1000-16i card, and drive numbering is correct!!! But no S.M.A.R.T support in the DSM GUI. Anyway if i type in console: smartctl -a /dev/sda i get all of the infos from disk. So, S.M.A.R.T working as well, just the GUI can't handle that. I've tested driver v1.2.0 and latest v1.2.1 as well. I hope this help you.
  6. I will try it this weeked... I have here one SC826BAC4-R920LPB chassis, one LSI 9300-8i and one Adaptec HBA 1000-16i card. I will try out both of the cards to see which one working properly.
  7. Great news! I think, this update will solve all of my problems. Thank you very much!!!
  8. I can test it in the middle of the next week, because i'm on business travel rigth now... But I have an idea: If you have a failed drive, with a cli command you get blinking the LED of the failed drive. (MegaCli or something else)
  9. Great news Thx Trantor! My cards will be happy And what about the NVMe driver, can we see it in the new release? It can be found in kernel configuration: Device Drivers -> Block devices -> NVM Express Block Device Please add it to!
  10. Wenn dein CP400i tatsächlich ein 9341-8i ist, dann müsste mit der Crossflasching bei dir auch funtionieren. Auf dem Link, den ich bereits hier gepostet habe, findest du auch die Anleitung von 9341-8i auf 9300-8i. (S.M.A.R.T geht auch nach dem flaschen)
  11. Ich denke schon. FW ist aus dieser Ansicht egal. Was ist der Typ von deine Karte? Kannst du mal bitte mit einem Ubuntu oder mit anderem Live distro booten, um nur schicher zu gehen, ob deine Karte richtig funktioniert?
  12. du muss zuerst auf der Herstellerwebseite nach IT firmware suchen. Falls keine gibt, dann kannst du deinen RAID-Controller crossflaschen. Mit diesem Technik habe ich von meinem Intel RS3UC080 einen echte LSI 9300-8i Controller gemacht. Es geht mit Karten von Supermicro auch, deswegen denke ich, dass es mit deinem Fujitsu auch gehen könnte. Man muss nur ein wenig Mut haben Hier ist die Anleitung, die ich damals dazu geschrieben habe: https://forums.servethehome.com/index.php?threads/crossflashing-of-lsi-9341-8i-to-lsi-9300-8i-success-but-no-smart-pass-through.3522/page-2#post-73894
  13. I have an idea, but for this solution must be the cards not the same. So, for example, if you have one from LSI and one from Adaptec, then just disable the driver of one of them in sysconfig.cfg with rmmod=drivername. Edit: i see just now, you have two LSI cards...
  14. ich hatte letzte woche das gleiche Problem... Und die Lösung ist einfach: 1. Die Karte im IT-Mode flaschen (nicht unbedingt wichtig, aber so wird dein NAS ähnlicher werden als ein echte Synology NAS) 2. auf dem USB-Stick in syslinux.cfg alle 3 APPEND Zeile mit "insmod=mpt3sas" ergänzen.

  15. I also have an LSI3008 card, and it's working well on this way. There are 3 APPEND lines in syslinux.cfg and you must add insmod=mpt3sas to ALL of them in order to proper working at all.
  16. Hi, you don't need copy mp3sas.ko to USB drive. It is already in the package 5.2.5644.4., just not loaded as default. Therefore add insmod=mpt3sas to the APPEND lines in syslinux.cfg and that's it.
  17. Yesterday i tried it out in VirtualBox. XPEnoboot 5.2-5644.4 can boot and install DSM 6 Beta 2. There are some error message at the boot process, but it's "working". I think it is a good sign for the future
  18. Hi Trantor, please update aacraid driver from 1.2.0 to 1.2.1 in kernel to add support the new Adaptec HBA 1000 16i series. This card was released just in december and i think it's really cheap http://www.adaptec.com/en-us/support/sas/sas/aha-1000-16i/ Thank you for your work
  19. Hi, I have two requests for you. The first one: Please add NVMe driver to the kernel. I bought a Samsung 950 NVMe M.2 SSD and I want to use it as SSD Cache in my server. As I know, Linux kernel supported NVMe drives since v3.1 And the second one: Could you please set mpt3sas.ko modul as default loaded modul? And please update it to the latest version v11 (if is it not so, unfortunately there is no "modinfo" command in BusyBox) I had already 2 times after reboot, that DSM see only 2 drives of 3. In this case I need to reboot, and after that it's OK. It can be, that insmod mpt3sas.ko working not properly or the driver version is older and not compatible with my firmware. I'm using the latest firmware v10 on my LSI 9300-8i card. In this zip can be found the latest driver source: http://docs.avagotech.com/docs/Linux-Driver-RHEL5-6_SLES10-11_P10.zip Thanks a lot!
