    The 9266 and 9271 Cisco branded LSI controllers in the M3 generation can only do RAID mode.

    M4 onwards can do JBOD.

    Thanks! So you have a LSI SAS3108? Yeah, I think that can do HBA mode, and that perfectly answers my question, as you can see at the bottom line, that is using the megaraid_sas driver and not the mpt3sas or other driver. That's exactly what I wanted to know. From my experience, if it is using the megaraid_sas driver, one issue you will have (compared to proper IT mode firmware) is that the /dev/sgX devices don't show up, so you can't run sg_format on the HDDs in the megaraid "HBA" mode. At least, I had that problem with Dell H330 with megaraid firmware and using the megaraid_sas driver. Once I moved to a proper IT mode firmware card, I could access the /dev/sgX devices.

    Now, LSI SAS3108 probably means that machine is NOT the M3, right? I think the M3 generation of machines only had SAS2008 or SAS2208, no?

    I have a 220 m3, 240 m3 that have this RAID controller. I also have a number of m4 UCS machines with the MegaRAID 12g controller. I sent the output from the MegaRaid one because I have Linux on one of those machines. The rest have Windows, or a hypervisor.

    No matter what version of java I use i get the following error. This is after whitelisting the IPs and loading the cert.

    CIMC Firmware: 3.0(4j)

    Code:
    com.sun.deploy.net.FailedDownloadException: Unable to load resource: https://10.10.0.101:443/software/avctNuova.jar

    Attached is the HBA info, windows is currently on this device so let me know what driver/device properties you'd like to know.

    Looks like it's utilizing the MegaRaid firmware as Smart info isn't being passed to the host OS.

    Ended up getting the CIMC KVM working on another computer.

    But dealing with a bigger issue atm, anyone have any idea how to reflash the Cisco UCSC RAID SAS 2008M‐8i? Tried the HUU and some searching, but haven't been able to get it to work.

    I may have mistakenly ran megarec -cleanflash on it before realizing it's a mezzanine card.

    This board has no onboard sata or sas(requires a raid key), so I'm stuck booting from USB/SD
