Gnoboot/LSI 2008


Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

 

been out of the loop for a while and am now trying to get up an ESXi based XPE setup...

 

I've installed it using gnoboot 10.3 and DSM 4458; upgraded to gnoboot 10.5 afterwards but still have the issue taht the disks on my HBA do not get found.

 

So i am running an SAS GBA in passthrough mode (LSI 2008) - that one is reckognized as per dmesg

 2.592852] mpt2sas0: LSISAS2008: FWVersion(16.00.00.00), ChipRevision(0x03), BiosVersion(00.00.00.00)
[    2.592860] mpt2sas0: Dell 6Gbps SAS HBA: Vendor(0x1000), Device(0x0072), SSVID(0x1028), SSDID(0x1F1C)
[    2.592864] mpt2sas0: Protocol=(Initiator,Target), Capabilities=(TLR,EEDP,Snapshot Buffer,Diag Trace Buffer,Task Set Full,NCQ)
[    2.592972] mpt2sas0: sending port enable !!
[    2.602774] mpt2sas0: host_add: handle(0x0001), sas_addr(0x5b8ca3a0ef8fdb00), phys(8)
[    2.603023] mpt2sas0: port enable: SUCCESS
[    2.608780]

but the drives attached to it are not listed in the gui...

 

Additionally i get some erros i cant relate to...

So whats my (hopefully stupid) mistake here? I am sure there are many ppl out there using that HBA successfully:)

 

Thanks

Ok, stupid indeed;) SAS connector was not seated properly :sad: Sorry.

 

Next interesting issue is that XPE is not able to restore a Raid spanning two channels - leaving me in quite a bad position with my old 5 disk raid 5 :sad:
