Hi,

I have a 93xx 12gb/s sas raid card and I am trying to get the correct firmware on my drive. When I go to HGST site to find firmware it says non G-tech product when I provide serial of drive. Drive itself is HUSMM1616ASS201

Does anyone have or know where I can get any of these three firmware files?

This is what broadcom's site reports as working firmware with this raid card -
B100, B300, B360

Also looking for firmware; this isn't recognized in my DL385 Gen10 w/ a HPE Smart Array P408i-a SR Gen10 controller. Seems to be recognized by my
3ware 9750-8i.
I appear to be running B204.

Make sure you are on 512 block size...
I’m fairly certain I am on 512 block size. With the Niagara tool, I was able to format the drives, even though it doesn’t appear I can do much else.

Edit: Now Niagara tool is not allowing me to format, so maybe it didn't work. I will continue to investigate.

sg_format can be used to format these drives

Looks like sg_format fails and returns:
bad field in MODE SENSE (10) [mode_page 1 not supported?]

Meanwhile, using the same command with a -v flag returns:
sudo sg_format -v --format --size=512 /dev/sgx

LSI 9750-8i DISK 5.12 peripheral_type: disk [0x0]
PROTECT=0
inquiry: transport: Host_status=0x08 [DID_RESET]
Driver_status=0x00 [DRIVER_OK]
VPD_UNIT_SERIAL_NUM corrupted
mode sense(10) cdb: 5a 00 01 00 00 00 00 00 fc 00
mode sense(10):
Fixed format, current; Sense key: Illegal Request
Additional sense: Invalid field in cdb
bad field in MODE SENSE (10) [mode_page 1 not supported?]


Appreciate any and all help.

Is this something I should open a new post for, instead of piggybacking off of this post?
