    Hello,


    i have bought 2 LSI 9361-8i Controllers both have no License for Raid 5 and Raid 6 in the Advanced Software Options.


    Does somebody have a clue where i can obtain those licenses? I have attached a Screenshot of MSM shown one of the cards.


    Hope someone can help it would be nice to have Raid 5,6,50,60 enabled.

    Are they legit LSI/Avago/Broadcom controllers or reflashed from an OEM adapter? Mine shows RAID 5 and RAID 6 as Factory Installed.

    I bought them used but they should be Legit LSI Cards. I did not reflash them. I there a way to tell if the card is Original?

    Do the VID and PID from device manager match to a genuine card? Should be 0x1000 and 0x005D.

    I would suggest a call to Avago/Broadcom. They might be able to point you in the right direction.

    I just got a response from Broadcom:

    Unfortunately these Controllers are OEM.

    LSI does not sell the License for R5 / 6 at all.

    So unfortunately these cards are limited to R 0,1,10 or HBA mode by the OEM.

    Were they advertised as genuine? If so, that should justify a refund.

    They were quite helpful to me, anyway, they have quite good diagnostic tools, here's excerpt from their email to me, maybe you can use same tools to detect what do you have exactly and later get correct CacheCade chip from ebay.
