Which loader for SAS drives

Recommended Posts

Hello folks.


I'm setting up a new XPenology instance in ESXi using SuperMicro X10SL7-F motherboard with an 8-channel LSI 2308 SAS adapter.  Which of the existing loaders/DS models is best suited for this purpose?  Just as an experiment I used 1.04b/918+, which appears to have installed without a hitch.  However, SAS drives don't report serial/firmware/temp in Storage Manager.  From cmdline I can find their basic stats with smartctl -all.


EDIT: After poking around the forum it seems that 3617XS might have better support for SAS.  Trying that out and so far seems good - network works, SAS drives are showing up correctly in Storage Manager.


Thank you.
