Make sure you don't accidentally flash an SSD or motherboard (or other hidden) LSI 2008 controller before continuing. The boards: LSI (now Avago/Broadcom) 9211/9300/9305/9311/94xx cards are widely recommended and used PCI-e SATA/SAS HBAs (host bus adapters). only due to mobo/CPU limitations; sounds like I'll have to go with SAS2008 cards to make the most out of my money. I’m going to leave the rest of my response up just in case it has something in there that helps you. Maybe it's old-fogey conservatism but I generally avoid bleeding-edge kit as it normally takes a minimum of six months to iron out the kinks (and in the case of some technologies, fundamental design flaws may surfaced).

Reboot, and just check you're on LSI IT firmware (see below), and if it's worked, then in theory it's all over except for a last update to P20, a SAS ID and a little tidying up.This is slightly more involved on motherboards with integrated LSI controllers (like my supermicro X10SL7-F), but just as easy in the end. Read the safety instructions, read the rest to get an idea of it, then follow their release notes and use their flasher and update the cards that way. The LSI HBA chips (2008/3008 and derivatives are used for a huge number of HBAs and RAID cards - both LSI/Avago/Broadcom and used in other cards. So after crossflashing the HBA the disks were not visible in the BIOS when I hadn't flashed the roms.

Again worth noting that it doesn't usually matter what value you give it, and you can update its SAS ID at any time after flashing by booting into MSDOS/EFI and using sas2flash -c CARD_ID -sasadd SAS ID.People might also tend to prefer using LSI/Avago/Broadcom firmware not Dell/Fujitsu versions, which means changing the card's recorded manufacturer. I've also updated it (2019-01-26,2019-02-16, 2020-01-29,2020-11-03) to cover card+controller information/resources and speed/compatibility/bandwidth "quick start" info, overheating/kernel panic/shutdown issues affecting some cards, and cable selection, for those looking to choose their cards, and a note on Supermicro HBAs. fs0: fs1: etc - select a device (Typing fs0: selects the device shown next to fs0: in map as the current device/folder. ZIP FILE / DOWNLOADS: All the files mentioned in this page, ready to unzip and copy to your bootable USB stick.

After reading posts from this and other forums, I feel like it's not necessary to flash the mtpsas2.Note that sas2flash -list will display the SAS ID with hyphens, but sas2flash -sasadd expects it entered without the hyphens as 16 plain hex characters. Might not be safe to "just disconnect"; check first - Any hardware RAID cards or onboard systems that are in use and that expect disks to remain in a specific state across a reboot, or which expect cached data to remain the same across a reboot; any onboard or card-based hardware that might expect/configure RAID or caching during the motherboard boot process; any drives configured as hardware RAID using a hardware controller, any drives where Intel, Marvel, AMD or other firmware "soft" RAID is in use and providing caching or RAID (whether it was configured through an orom or from within an OS). If I'm using an LSI RAID card on a SuperMicro server motherboard, I shouldn't need to do the UEFI thing right?

The BTA offers structured, e-learning, face-to-face, labs and training, delivered by world-class trainers, tailored to the knowledge-base of the attendees from beginner up to expert. Type these lines manually one at a time, but adding " -c 0" for the first card, " -c 1" for the second card, etc.Can you un-cable manage the breakout cables (read - take it out of the velcro straps and keep them as far away from other cables and as unbent as possible)and try and isolate them from any other cable interferrence. Single or Dual link to expander also work, if in dual link then actual bandwidth would be 4GB for 16 disks, every disk got 250MB minimum, so scan 10TB should less then 24hrs. Note: See also the sas2flash analysis and modified efi flasher "SAS2HAX" which skips the manufacturer ID check, at the end of this page.
