    Conflict between LSI in PCI-E 1.1 x4 slot and onboard SATA2 ports

    Hi all Firstly, this is possibly a motherboard problem so it might belong in the mobo forum; but my symptoms relate only to disks and HBAs, so I hope it's OK being here. I have a Tyan S7012 motherboard, LGA1366 chipset. This motherboard has 4 x PCI-E 2.0 x8 slots and 1 x PCI-E 1.1 x4 slot...

    Powering a PCI-E SAS expander without a PCI-E slot? Theoretically possible to make an adapter?

    Hi all I'm thinking of adding at least one SAS expander to my setup, as I am currently using 4 x LSI cards - and therefore 4 x PCI-E 2.0 slots - to run 28 x 2TB SATA3 drives. I know that I can put more drives on fewer cards without losing performance, but as I have a low-profile case I can't...

    ZFS: Partitioning drives = write cache disabled?

    Hi all I'm hoping to get a high-performance PCI-E SSD to add to my home Solaris 11.3 file server/NAS. Specifically, a 1.2TB LSI Nytro Warp drive. (Forum thread here.) This device is an LSI 2308 with 6 x 200GB SSDs, which by default are configured as a hardware RAID-0. But I believe it is...

    LSI devices appear as IDE in motherboard boot list?

    Hey all I'm doing a major upgrade on my home fileserver, and have finally upgraded from using cheap Marvell cards and mobo ports to having enough LSI ports for all my HDDs (a total of 28 ports available for 26 drives + boot SSD.) In total I have four LSI cards - 1 x 9211-4i (SAS2004), 2 x...

    SAS2308 vs 2008 - any big value in upgrading, besides PCIE b/w?

    Here's my question in a nutshell: what are the benefits, if any, in upgrading SAS2008 cards to SAS2308 cards, besides offering PCIE 3.0 bandwidth and being capable of handling more devices (1024 vs 512)? If you had a server that only supported PCIE 2.0, containing several SAS2008 cards running...

    LSI 2308 (9217-8i) on Solaris 11.3?

    Hey all I got my first LSI SAS HBA this week (LSI SAS 2008) and now want to get a second for my home file server running Solaris 11.3. I've found a good deal on a used LSI 9217-8i with the SAS 2308 chipset. It's priced the same as an OEM 9211-8i/SAS2008 but it's in the UK so I can get it...

    FS: Home lab extras: Supermicro Motherboards, CPUs, HBAs and more

    Bought way too much gear for my home lab and in the process of inventorying all the excess HW and will be updating this thread. I've not done international shipping before and not familiar with the process. So, I'd prefer to limit it to CONUS but open to the idea of outside US. Prefer PayPal...

    The SuperMicro X10SDV-7TP4F ships with an onboard LSI-2116. I've never worked with an HBA or a DAS before, so I'm may be doing this wrong, but here's what I want to do: Hook up the 4 internal SFF-8643 ports to this Quad External MINI SAS HD SFF-8644 to Internal MINI SAS HD SFF-8643 12G...

    Help - anyone with an Intel 910 400GB who can download the bare Intel firmware (not the intel pkg)

    (Crossposted to FreeNAS forums) I have a server with an LSI 9211-IT HBA, Intel 910 SSD, and Chelsio NIC. I was updating the HBA firmware. As usual I checked no other RAID/HBA/LSI cards in the machine, so I flashed the HBA. It now turns out that the Intel 910 uses the same chip internally -...

    IBM H1110 x4 not working in Skylake PCIe x4 slot - suggestions?

    Hey all, I have a Supermicro X11SAE-M and an IBM H1110 (SAS2004, sort of like a LSI 9211-4i but with an x4 form factor) with a Skylake Xeon E3 v5 CPU. The H1110 works in the x16 slot, but is not recognised in the x4 slot (according to Linux lspci). It shows up in the LSI BIOS control center in...

    1.2TB LSI Nytro Warp Drive PCIe SSDs - $240

    The LSI Nytro Warp Drive 1.2TB is a bit older so the read/ write IOPs are not crazy. On the other hand, these did use eMLC NAND in was was essentially a RAID of onboard drive PCBs. Probably the best price/performance/capacity deal out there right now but they are likely older drives: LSI 1.2TB...

    I have an LSI Megaraid 9266-4i card with 22 1TB 7200 RPM drives attached as well as two 120GB SSD attached and for the life of me no matter what the configuration is I cannot get the performance to be consistent.
