Joined Oct 9, Messages Thanks In some cases, users have come to the forum inquiring about a many-port controller where some combination would do. Actually for LSI cards you can make a DOS bootable using some old USB thumb drive with the firmware files on it and slip that into your uber Unix box and boot it up and do the firmware work without messing up your nice unix box. The takeaway from all of this? View attachment You can hit control-C during that to get to the card configuration utility. It’s may be supported. Thread starter jgreco Start date Mar 19,

These cards often come without brackets or with a low-profile bracket to fit into 2U rackmount servers. You’re more likely to get a refund from a scammer if they are in the 2008 than overseas from my experience.
And so far, things like hot adding a drive seem to work fine. They try to make it look Windows-y and while it’s possible to control from the keyboard use ALT plus the highlighted characters, and ENTER to selectit helps to have a mouse. If you haven’t figured it out, the point is to steer away from frfebsd and extremely pricey RAID controllers. M on the way.

Flashing IT firmware for LSI i on FreeBSD – Dan Langille’s Other Diary
LSI makes a lot of hardware. I used a different computer to perform the flash without issue.
Motherboard ports are generally fine. Getting a proper bracket is recommended. There is a very tight relationship between the FreeBSD driver and the firmware of the card.
View attachment And so far, things like hot adding a drive seem to work fine. It has been a very pleasant and flexible controller to work with, as we use them with ESXi in -IR mode as well. A “dmesg grep mps” would show something like: You can look under SAS Topology at your attached disks, but really there’s not a whole lot to be seen here in IT mode.
Confused about that LSI card? Join the crowd …
It is worth noting: Joined May 29, Messages 11, Thanks 2, The controller selection screen there will tell you the make and firmware of your controller. These devices are intended to abstract out the physical storage and present the system with virtual devices, which means that they’ve got an incredibly flexible and rich featureset and the ability to attach lots of drives both directly and indirectly, in many RAID levels, etc.
If you don’t, then it is under the “mfi” driver and it is a RAID card. If you don’t have one I wouldn’t spend money in it.
Sure, it’s “newer” but it won’t affect the performance of ZFS Fakes are becoming a bigger and bigger problem. They’re not hopeless, but the inexpensive HBA models are more appropriate and better suited to the task.

It works just fine.
