Can anyone help me with this?Hi all,
I need some help, please. I recently purchased a LSI IBM 9212-4i4e card for a Truenas build and want to make sure it has the most updated and correct firmware for ZFS installed. However, I mainly use Windows OS and have very little experience with Linux base/Command-Line. However, I want to try, but don't want to go in blind...so, I think I have located the correct firmware for "IT" mode on the Broadcom website and see several forms of documentation on how to flash using "Sas2flash.efi"?? or something like that. However, I can't seem to create the USB drive with the directories correctly so it runs and has what I need on it so I can simply just follow the instructions other people have posted on the internet which are supposed to complete the update/flash process. I wanted to see if someone would be willing to help me with building the USB on an Ubuntu machine with the correct dir's and then kind of give me a walkthrough/run down on the commands to enter I guess from the UEFI bootable USB drive??? to enter once loaded? I have read this forum post and it does mention some of this but nothing step by step that really answers my question. The card currently is installed in my Windows 10 machine with a MSI MEG-Z490 motherboard which does support UEFI and has it's own Shell?? program I think. Can someone help me please?
Thank you very much. I will look into this and see what I can come up with.I wrote a blog post years ago going through all that. It'll be a bit different for you since you're using linux and its a different card. All you need to do is create a bootable USB with the files I provide, add your firmware then perform a "downgrade" flash with your IT firmware. You obviously don't need the steps where you crossflash a different Dell firmware to then downgrade to an LSI firmware.
Default firmware for this guide is: 2118it.bin Version 20.00.07.00 Release date: 11-FEB-16 WARNING: If you have an Integrated, Mini or Mini Mono Perc H310 do NOT try to crossflash with these steps.…techmattr.wordpress.com
We had to use a non-GUI service to fetch the files, i.e. wget(8) on Linux or fetch(8) on out FreeBSD servers. Just hovering over the link on Broadcom's website and save the URL, go to a console, type "fetch" and paste the saved URL.Does anyone have LSI_PreBoot_Installer .zip or .7z from LSI Pre-Boot USB tool Download ? Seems to error out on those 2 files on their FTP
Also are any of the programs in this thread capable of reporting the version information of a FW / Bios from file?
- ie I have some folders with 2108it.bin - but I don't know what version that is
