SATA controller ESXi and Xpenology compatible

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I currently have a Gigabyte MB with the Lynx Point controller onboard. This controller can not be passed through to a VM so I am currently working with RDM.

The downside to this is I cannot monitor the SMART status of my drives this way.

 

So I'm looking for a good SATA Controller which is supported in ESXi (to passthrough) and which is supported in Xpenology (now on Nanoboot 5.0 4493 Update 7).

 

Solutions to passthrough my onboard Lynx Point controller are also more than welcome!

 

Thx in advance,

Kenny

Any LSI card based on the LSI SAS 2008 controller should work. I use one in my current setup, and it works great. I'm going to be building a new system based on the LSI SAS 2308 controller, and I'm hoping that works as well.
