Dell Perc H310 card - Questions

Recommended Posts

Just bought a Dell h310 card to install my new Nas (bare metal) with 4x2tb hdd. I may extend more hhds in the future.

Installed latest DSM 5.2-5967 on it and everything ran smoothly.

I however found in Storage manager (HHD/SSD) 2 HHDs that I hooked up to Dell card shows no info. in Health Info and S.M.A.R.T tabs.

 

1. Currently I use ORIGINAL (no touch) Dell card. Should I flash it to IT mode to see disk info of those attached to Dell h310 card in Storage Manager?

 

2. If I have to, is it good enough I flash to Dell FW IT mode or I have to flash to LSI 9211-8i FW?

 

3. I saw many people flashed this card to IT mode LSI 9211-8i. What benefits will I have in this case with XPEnology installed? It will run smoothly and faster or something?

 

Thanks for your inputs. I appreciate it.

Been here for 2 days, but sorry nobody can help?

I don't think, in this such big forum, there is no one using a SAS card.

I had to flash to LSI 9211-8i FW. Instructions a lot out there by Google searching.

Looks like LSI 9211-8i FW on Dell card makes it faster and more reliable.

Cheers.
