    I had a question. Is there a way to take a LSI 9265-8i and remove the cache module and battery and flash it to IT mode so it behaves like a 9210-8i? I have run out of the 9210's but have a ton of 9265's.

    Not familiar with 9265-8i. If it is based on 2208 you can turn it into 2308 based HBAs like HP H220 (9205-8i / 9207-8i etc) IT mode.

    Search for @vanfawx posts on this forum.

    Yeah, according to Broadcom docs, the 9265-8i is based on SAS2208 chipset, so good chance it can run the SAS2308 firmware. Just be aware, it may be functional, but it might also throw some error condition, like alarms or error LEDs.
