Dell PERC H310 IT Mode and TCRP Loader


Recommended Posts

Hi there, I am sort of new to HBA cards when comes to Xpenology. I am planning to buy a Dell PERC H310 HBA card but I would like to know is this card supported by the Tiny Core Red Pill loader? I tried to lookup at the Github but i find no luck (not familiar with the rp-ext given code name)

 

Thanks for the help!

What platform are you looking to build?
I have a Dell R620 with a PERC H310 in IT mode, with the DS3622xs+ installed and running great.  

Do a listmods command to see what drivers you will need and then build your loader.

Hope this helps.

mpt2sas and later that one was integrated into mpt3sas driver and the old driver name is just a alias the is used with mpt3sas

3615/3617/3622 com with generic drivers, 3617 and 3622 have newer version of that driver that supports some "newer" 12G SAS controller

really newer controller like the tri-mode might only be supported with extension drivers and that should be checked before assuming it will work (check the pcie id's in the driver near "vermagic" or use modinfo on a normal linux with that driver)

there where serious problems with 918+ on 6.2.3 when using hdd sleep that could result in damaged raid's, i have not checked if thats still a problem with 7.x and rp loader

its 100% safe to use 3622 with its generic 7.x driver

synology did not publish any of the lsi sas drivers they use, so we dont know how much they are modded to go with synologys modded kernel

if a driver as extension works (like showing smart into and serial numbers of disks) and hdd sleep is tested with it then i'd say its safe enough

i stopped using lsi sas controllers myself and switched to newer pcie 3.0 capable ahci controllers instead, so take this with a grain of salt when it comes to dsm 7.x and rp loader

you can read some comments here

and there is also the udpate section in the forum you can check for lsi sas controller owners (look for sas hba and it-mode)

Thanks! i am going to install DS3622xs+ as well. Glad to heard that PERC H310 in IT Mode works well with TCRP loader.

Thanks for the explanation. Really open up my options between HBA cards and PCIE 3.0 AHCI controllers.
