For those of you with a Supermicro chassis...

Recommended Posts

I have an SC846 chassis with the SAS2 backplane that's connected to the motherboard via a Dell H310 card (flashed to IT mode).

 

Do any of you have a similar setup, that some how makes it so your locating LEDs on each of your drive bays is flashing? I noticed after flashing the card and getting it all setup again that the red drive LEDs were flashing, and they won't turn off. Now that I'm not running my M5015 cards where I can run the MegaRAID software, I can't go in and stop the LEDs.

 

Any insight here?

Try this and see if it works.

sudo find /sys/devices/ -type f -name locate -exec sh -c 'echo 0 > "$1"' -- {} \;

I think I love you. That worked! Thank you so much! It was driving me nuts!

No problem.  Glad it worked.  You'll have to run this after every reboot though.  Or you can put it in some startup script.

Will creating a task for the script to run at startup not work for this? I'll have to test it out.

Let us know if it works in a startup script.

did you ever have any luck getting this to work as a script???

 

I actually only had to run it once, and I never had to run it again... YMMV.

it is working for me but reverts back on reboot or when installing another disk.

 

could anyone help with creating a script for this to run on bootup??
