    I have an LSI 9212-4i now with P20 IR firmware in my Supermicro ESXi box

    If I plug in my Intel DC S3500 800GB SSD, it will kinda work for 10 mins, and then just times out in ESXi

    If I plug in my Samsung 850 Pro 512GB, it works forever, but not right:
    If I create a new VM, it complains that "Failed - The file is too large" and if I upload a file, and try and move it to a folder, it says "Failed - Invalid Datastore path"

    The only thing I havn't tried yet is flashing it with IT firmware

    Any suggestions?

    I threw the card in my other Supermicro host at home with ESXi 6.7, and I had the same problem

    If I pass the card through to Windows, I get full SMART details, and everything just works...

    Well, I flashed it to the latest IT firmware, and still not working!

    Very strange, if I make it VMFS5 everything works 100%... VMFS6 I have problems with

    Never seen this before!
