Post #126 suggests that MSM version 8.10-04 will show smart data on drives. My M1015 is cross-flashed to 9211 IR mode and the smart enable is greyed out.
Do I need to flash to 9240 to get smart to work?
The 3Ware stuff generally uses its own engine, so there isn't alternate-function firmware available. Most of the later 3Ware cards support both single-disk units (benefitting from controller cache + BBU) and unconfigured drive passthru. I've been using the 9650SE-16ML with 16 single-disk units (2TB each) in a zpool for over 5 years and have been quite pleased with them. In fact, when I do the "mid-life kicker" on my RAIDzilla II servers this spring (6TB drives, another 48GB RAM, other goodies) I'll likely keep the 3Ware cards as they are will-integrated in my chassis design ( I²C between the controller and the front panel with 3 LEDs per drive bay) and I like the online management tools the 3Ware controllers offer.Anyone know if 3ware 9750-4i can be cross-flashed to some HBA?
Hey Patrick,SAS2004 (PCIe 4x)
IBM ServeRAID M1110 (81Y4492) - LSI ??
IntelÂ® RAID Controller RS2WC040 - LSI 9240-4i
SAS 6.0gbps, SATA 6.0gbps, approximately 9w of power consumption, PowerPC at 533MHz, no onboard cache, PCIe 2.0 x8 interface, supports SAS expanders (with dual linking), uses sas2flash utility to flash to IT mode (when possible).
IBM ServeRAID M1015 similar to LSI 9240-8i but the M1015 does not support RAID 5 and RAID 50 even when flashed to LSI 9240-8i firmware.
IBM ServeRAID M1115 newer version of the M1015
IBM 6 Gb Performance Optimized HBA (46M0912) - LSI-9240-8i (SSD enhanced)
Intel RS2WC080 looks identical to the LSI 9240-8i and IBM M1015, but supports RAID 5 and RAID 50 like the 9240-8i.
Lenovo 67Y1460 is a barely re-branded LSI 9240-8i.
IBM 6 Gb SAS Host Bus Adapter (46M0907) - LSI 9212-4i4e - 4x Internal SATA3 and 1x 4 SAS2 8088 external connector.
Dell PERC H200 ships with IT firmware but seems similar to the LSI 9211-8i
Dell Perc H310
Fujitsu D2607 - 9211-8i ?
IBM ServeRAID M1115 newer version of the M1015 ?
SUN SGX-SAS6-EXT-Z (p/n 375-3641) - LSI 9200-8e
SUN SGX-SAS6-INT-Z (p/n 375-3640) - LSI 9211/10-8i
Intel RMS2AF040 (Proprietary PCIe 4x)
Intel RMS2AF080 (Proprietary PCIe 4x) As above but 8 port
SuperMicro AOC-USAS2-L8iR - 9240-8i spec'd but with 16MB cache and RAID 5 but no RAID 1E has IR firmware (UIO Card!)
SuperMicro AOC-USAS2-L8E - HBA verion so most like a 9211-8i has IT firmware (UIO Card!)
SuperMicro AOC-USAS2-L8i - LSI 9240-8i spec'd no RAID 5 but does have RAID 1E has IR Firmware (UIO Card!)
