I have a LSI 9211-8i sas card, only one port seems to work out of the two. I tested the cables and the drives and there does not seem to be an issue there. I am not too familiar with SAS cards and I am hoping someone here may know the command or way to check to see if that port has been TURN off...
i have a windows 10 pc with DELL perc H200 and an IBM Lto6 drive
It works but i suspect the controller is a bottleneck, i only transfer zip/tar files (quite big) but sometimes the copy slows down, and almost never exceeds 150/180 mb/s
I bought an used Dell Adaptec PCI-E 12Gb SAS Controller...
Hi team, anyone can share the latest (last??) HP Q6Q68A LTO-8 SAS Drive Firmware?
More specifically "LTO_30750_SAS_P381_MSL.frm"
PS: This is a good reason to move away from HPE to others like IBM => HPE paywalls firmware while others remain open

Am I right that U.2 (2.5" NVME) SSD can NOT be connected to SAS3008-based HBA (LSI SAS 9305-16i) through any cable (for example, this one or this)?
I'm fine that I don't get a full NVME speed, I just see that U.2 (2.5" NVME) SSD are cheaper than SAS SSD.
Also, the only way to...
I wanted to know how can I tell the firmware version of my IBM H1110, (

My array has now hit 50% capacity so I'm starting to look for the next set of drives to add into it.
I have 6 bays that can take SAS 12Gbs drives, so if you have drives over 4TB you're looking to rehome hit me up. I don't really have any particular models in mind, will briefly research any that...

Right now I’m trying to erase 2 SAS drives but I came to the problem that I can’t just use a adaptor from SATA to SAS and plug it into my pc. So now I’m trying to find a SAS controller so I can plug it in to my pc and erase them. I’m new to server so I don’t know what type of controller I need...
Just bought a lsi 9300-16i. Price seemed pretty cheap for this and I want to make sure I've got a genuine card. I've read that people verify their serial numbers with LSI to make sure they didn't buy a "counterfeit". Has anybody here done that? If so, could you be kind to point me in the...
here's the question, and maybe it's obvious to some of you.
i've got a 2U SuperMicro server with their SAS3 expander built-in. i installed an old stinky H11SSW-iN from ebay on it. (if you sold it to me, thanks!). no matter how I connect the cables, the motherboard (running a stinky old 7551P)...
I need to connect 4 SED Ultrastar HC550 hard drives somehow, but I don't know what to look for other than low price and number of ports. The drives are less than 285 MB/s each, so I doubt there would be bandwidth limitations. Does the HBA affect use of TCG Enterprise encryption? I was looking at...
Is there free software for managing TCG Enterprise encryption in SAS drives? The Ultrastar HC550 manual mentions a bunch of commands, but I don't know what I would need to issue them, for example to set a password for a drive track or unlock the drive.
I have a SC846E26-R1200B chasis with a SAS2008 PCI-Express Fusion-MPT SAS-2 controller. lsscsi is showing the expander as LSILOGIC SASX36 A.1. I noticed some of the drives (well I noticed the patter that it's just non WD ones) report only getting a 1.5 Gb/s SATA link. Any ideas?

I ve being using in a production level some sas2 disks hitachi-wd Dell 2.5inch 10k 1.2Tb drives with zfs (no Zil or Slog extra devices) in a raid 10 level. In a random check to the drives I noticed that the feature of all the drives write cache was disabled. Used the command sdparm -g...
Do any of you know where to find Very short, or even custom 8087 Cables? I would like to not interrupt airflow to much and the connectors are between 4 and 0 inches apart. I currently have .5m(1.5ft) cables, and they are to long.
If anyone knows where to buy the wire and connectors I would be...
Hi all, I have an Lenovo P700 workstation for which I purchased 2x Lenovo 03T8798 as shown here. I just thought I'd prefer a hot swap style of connector.
However it requires a sas card with Mini SAS HD connectors. I notice there are plenty of PCIe Mini SAS HD cards such as this one for the...
