This article explains the process: A quick search of the web turned up the same results for others during the flash process. If you don’t, then it is under the “mfi” driver and it is a RAID card. In some cases, users have come to the forum inquiring about a many-port controller where some combination would do. They try to make it look Windows-y and while it’s possible to control from the keyboard use ALT plus the highlighted characters, and ENTER to select , it helps to have a mouse.

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 here in IT mode.
Sure, it’s “newer” but it won’t affect the performance of ZFS And once they do update the FreeBSD driver you need to either compile it yourself or wait for FreeNAS to include it at which time I’m sure they’ll x; the readme to list the required firmware version.
So the question becomes, what then. Sp attachment 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.

If you have one already I’d try it and post back. It is important to crossflash this card!
If you don’t, then it is under the “mfi” driver and it is a RAID card. Thread starter jgreco Start date Mar 19, You can hit control-C during that to get to the card configuration utility. View attachment And so far, things like hot adding a drive seem to work fine. I always stick with buyers that have good return policies in case they are fakes.
Once the M was flashed psi IT mode, I was able to place the card back into the intended machine and use it with out issue.
Note firmware version 15 and IT mode. Motherboard ports are generally fine.

Getting a proper bracket is recommended. It is worth noting: Good point, I had forgotten about that.
The controller selection screen there will tell you the make and firmware of your controller. Fakes are becoming a bigger and bigger problem. It is caused by UEFI and there is a work around.
If you haven’t figured it out, the point is to steer away from port-dense and extremely pricey RAID controllers. You need to boot into UEFI shell and use the sas2flash. Generally with ebay I stick to purchases from inside the USA if its an expensive purchase. Joined Sep 9, Messages Thanks Why is it that whenever I go to buy something on eBay, I can see that some of them sold two months ago for half what people are asking for it today.
View attachment You can hit control-C during that to get to the card configuration utility. 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.

If you don’t have one I wouldn’t spend money in it. It has been a very pleasant lei flexible controller to work with, as we use them with ESXi in -IR mode as well. If you’re confused, it is probably understandable Any use of “virtual drives” or one-drive RAID0 JBOD modes likely involves the controller writing its own proprietary configuration to the drive and then that means that if you ever need to switch controllers, you’re going to have extra special trouble because you need to copy the data off the old drive, not just move the old drive to a new SATA controller port.
