It’s totally unrealistic to require Windows in order to update firmware on a network or storage controller, because you’re not going to install Windows on your massive UNIX server just to update some firmware. You can do a “mfiutil show drives” to see attached drives and “mfiutil show volumes” to show the available volumes. If you have one already I’d try it and post back. As per the readme make sure you use firmware version And it is more difficult because the disks don’t show up in “camcontrol devlist”. Within FreeBSD, that’ll probe as a controller serviced by the mps driver, and the drives will appear as normal “daX” devices and appear in “camcontrol devlist”, so pretty straightforward pleasure there.

However, even once that happens, they will not show up as FreeBSD CAM devices, so if you’re used to being able to do “camcontrol devlist” or other camcontrol ops, they won’t be there for management in that manner.
Flashing IT firmware for LSI i on FreeBSD – Dan Langille’s Other Diary
It has been a very pleasant and flexible controller to work with, as we use them with ESXi in -IR lssi as well. I used a different computer to perform the flash without issue. And it is more difficult because the disks don’t show up in “camcontrol devlist”.
You can look under SAS Topology at your attached disks, but really there’s not a whole lot to be seen fredbsd in IT mode. Actually for LSI cards you can make a DOS bootable using some old USB thumb drive with the firmware files on it and slip that into your uber Unix box and boot it up and do the firmware work without messing up your nice unix box.
It is caused by UEFI and there is freeebsd work around.
A “dmesg grep mps” would show something like: Aimed at high performance and high availability applications, they tend to have more ports, cache, perhaps battery for the cache, and options for managing and configuring the array. Thank You for the education.
If you don’t, then it is under the “mfi” driver and it is a RAID card. In some feeebsd, users have come to the forum inquiring about a many-port controller where some combination would do.
Fakes are becoming a bigger and bigger problem. If you’re confused, it is probably understandable View attachment And so far, things like hot adding a drive seem to work fine. Joined Sep 9, Messages Thanks LSI makes a lot of hardware. View attachment You can hit control-C during that to get to the card configuration utility. So the question becomes, what then. View attachment Shows you the adapter type and firmware revision. Within FreeBSD, that’ll probe as a controller serviced by the mps driver, and the drives will appear as normal “daX” devices and appear in “camcontrol devlist”, so pretty straightforward pleasure there.
LSI SAS2008 mps driver preferred firmware version
Lsii it is possible to configure the LSI controllers to pass through unconfigured-good drives to the underlying OS but they don’t do it by default, and I don’t see an immediately obvious way to set that. If you do, it works under the “mps” driver, and it becomes a plain HBA. Why is frfebsd that whenever I go to buy something on eBay, I can see that some osi them sold two months ago for half what people are asking for it today.
I always stick with buyers that have good return policies in case they are fakes. They’re not hopeless, but the inexpensive HBA models are more appropriate and better suited to the task. It works just fine. The takeaway from all of this? The eBay price on the i vreebsd to have dropped substantially, I don’t really know what the reason for that might be. There are so many vendors with so many stupid flash update requirements that we normally don’t bother trying to upgrade card firmware in-place unless it is something like the HP gear which just gives you a CD image to update everything in the system automatically.
Sure, it’s “newer” but freebsr won’t affect the performance of ZFS The error seems to manifest on certain Intel chipsets. It’s totally unrealistic to require Windows in order to update firmware on a network or ,si controller, because you’re not going to install Windows on your massive UNIX server just to update some firmware.
