Read the post again and you will know cross flash is broken on newer firmware. So stick to the OLD LSI firmwareDear All,
I have M5015, and would like to use Trial 30 days for chachecade and see is this worth to pay for. Thing is that I have card and Asus workstation, so I think that only ways to use trial is to flash cart to LSI instead of IBM. To the point I have done this... by using megarec dos and OLD LSI firmwar. Card reported to be LSI, then using MSM (this java tool) I have upgraded card with most current Avago firmware, and.... Card is thinking again that it's IBM... Any idea how to permanent flash this card ? BTW any idea that LSI hardware cachecade key is working with IBM card?
Thanks in advance,
Ever have any luck getting this sorted out?Howdy all, I'm not sure if we need a new thread for this or not. However ... I asked the question about the 12Gb SAS Drives from Seagate (ST6000NM0034). I was attempting to get these to spin up on an M5015 ...No joy there. I ended up purchasing a pair of M5210 cards and finally things were working. Does anyone know if the 12Gb spec is not compatible with 6Gb cards? I'm hearing it should be. Is it only 6Gb cards with SFF-8643 MiniSAS connectors? Of course that's conjecture on my part but with SFF-8087 is there actually a difference in the cabling for 12Gb there are SSF-8087 -> SFF-8482 fan-out cables, none I tried worked.
Also on the new M5210 getting into the config utillity has not been possible for me. I have a UEFI bios and do not seem to be able to navigate into any utilities for the card. I have the AVAGO MSM in windows but I want to configure JBOD and it seems as if the only way to do that is with the configuration utility on boot. I just don't know how. Is there as string on this site with an answer to the utility issue I'm having?
It's not a real error, but the line under the command say "Protected Mode Run-Time".What is your "error", I don't see one listed in your screenshot?
If the command megarec -writesbr 0 sbrempty.bin fails, you could try megarec -cleanflash 0 instead.
I would also say don't use a win98 dos boot disk for this, instead use Rufus/ Freedos to create your boot disk
Just tried with FreeDOS with the same result "Protected Mode Run-Time".It's not a real error, but the line under the command say "Protected Mode Run-Time".
So the command is send to the wrong device, my HBA is faulty or it's really the boot disk who's not correct.
I've only one HBA in each test rig, so it's probably not this..
I can access the stock IBM WEBios, and the HBA correctly see my 8disk
So I'll try the FreeDOS tonight then!!
