    LSI SAS2 9211-4i and LSI MegaRAID SATA 300-8X work perfectly

      Did LSI SAS2 9211-4i support hotplug??

  2. Anonymous

    my best to use 8 Channel SAS/ Sata controller are (already used by SUN) LSI 1068e based ones like

    Intel SASUC8I see

    SuperMicro AOC-USASLP-L8 (the cheapest, but UIO/ wrong side mounted)


    LSI 2008 (SAS-2) based ones if they are in IT (Initiator-Target/ HBA) mode instead of IR/ Raid mode or you have to reflash them (check possibility especially with LSI 2008 chipsets, OK at least with LSI and SuperMicro Onboard HBA's)

    Got Problems with 88SE6320 (on Asus P6T Deluxe) => seems to be not supported

    1. Yes, am also seeing problems with the Marvell 88SE9128

      • implemented as GSATA3 on a GigaByte GA-P67A-UD7-B3 mobo.

      Drives do not appear at all in AHCI/Firmware bypass mode.
      They do appear in AHCI/Firmware 'BIOS' mode, however, but cannot be configured:

      cfgadm: Hardware specific failure: Failed to config device at api_id (etc.)

      (nothing all that 'marvel'ous about it so far...)

      Onthe other hand, for all ports controlled by the P67A, things are working great! Interface is set to AHCI, with 'Bypass' firmware mode.

    DELL PERC 6/i Sas/Sata controller

    works fine

  7. I have a Sil3114 (Silicon Image 4xSATA PCI card) in my OpenIndiana machine (Intel D510MO motherboard). It only uses the "cmdk" (ide) drivers, not ahci. Only real difference I've seen is that it doesn't play as nice with `cfgadm` in terms of being able to disconnect/reconnect a drive while the system is still running.

    Or is there some other way to get the 'ahci' driver working with that card?? (I have flashed it with the non-raid bios).

    88SE9120 works with 32bit mode, but not with 64bit mode.
    In 64bit mode, ahci driver attached but no drives are detected.

      I am having a similar problem with jmb363 chip on oi_148, in 64-bit. The controller is detected, but drives can not be configured with cfgadm.

      I was wondering if there is any progress on the support for these Marvell SATA3.0 6GB/s controllers (88SE91xx series). These are used in many low cost cards. Highpoint which uses the in their Rocket 600 series cards claims support for Linux and FreeBSD.

    I am having some weird problems with the OpenSolaris 3Ware 9.5.1 dirvers and oi_148 , after installing the drivers, the networking goes down on the box and I start to get random hangs from the CLI. Any ideas?

    1. Anonymous

      I suspect the problem is your kernel is a different version than the drivers were meant for. I had similar problems trying to use the 3ware drivers for 2008.11 on 2009.06.

      Unfortunately with Sun having abandoned the OpenSolaris project it seems unlikely 3ware will be producing any more drivers. I'm stuck in the same situation, needing to replace a 3ware card with something else before I can install OpenIndiana.

    2. I've managed to find the 9.5.3 drivers (currently found here: ) and they appear to be working on oi_151a7.

    I am a Linux user trying OpenIndiana 151a for a big server. We have two MegaRAID 9265-8i, and although it is supported under Solaris (1) and probably OpenIndiana (2) via the mpt_sas for LSI 92xx controllers, after I installed MegaCli and MegaRaidStorageManager(3), neither of them can find any controller! Of course the same tools find and manage the two controllers under both Ubuntu and CentOS 6... Anyone has some experience or hints for me ?

  12. does the new LSI SAS 9207-8i work with openindiana?

  13. Where get HighPoint RocketRAID 27xx controllers driver?

    1. Dose not support HighPoint RocketRAID 27xx controllers (Marvell 88SE6445)?

      1. You can use the Highpoint Rocket 640L with the ahci driver.

  14. Should we have a column or better yet two columns for describing just how well the HBA works with ZFS.  

    a) "IT mode supported e.g. JBOD support" 

    • yes
    • no
    • unknown 

    b) "IT support"

    • std default support  (firmware rev)
    • custom firmware flash (URL link)  
    • N/A
    • unknown

    For example I have to flash an IBM M1015 (LSI 2008 chipset ) to get IT mode to work and I used info from the URL link .  I don't really know if the chip set defines what firmware is needed or it is based on the HBA card.

    What I would like to see is that someone can get an HBA and know if it will work and if they need to perform specail configuration (BIOS or firmware screens) or special flashing as I did for my M1015 cards.  It just seems that once the illumos / openindiana / nexenta/ smartos/ omnios / illumian  community has a working HBA that it needs good documentation to help others make good choices anf get things workign quickly.  Maybe ech HBA needs a wiki subpage ?

    Here's an example maybe someone wants to buy a IBM x3550 M4 in the HCL (the HBA appears to be a ServeRAID M5110e SAS/SATA Controller for IBM System x integrated with system board and seems to have chipset of MegaRAID SAS 2208 [Thunderbolt].  According to this HCL page it is supported by mr_sas but would they get IT mode for best ZFS stability and performance (on a quick ISO install of say openindiana oi_151a7) or would thy be stuck in IR mode ?

    Thanks in Advance

    Jon Strabala.

    1. You are right. I have a new server Dell R720xd with 24+2 hdd. With Perc H710 mini raid controller. Which has LSI Logic / Symbios Logic MegaRAID SAS 2208 [Thunderbolt] chipset.

      I found in this table, that oi_151a works with it, but even a7 does not. mr_sas should work with H7xx and another line mr_sas should work with LSI2208. When i wanted to install openindiana, installer didn't find any disk.

  15. IS LSI 920x/921x/9240 driver changed? Use mr_sas, not mpt_sas?

    1. mpt_sas is for specific LSI 9200/9201/9202/9210/9211/9212 cards.

  16. Dose OI have plan to support QLogic 16Gb (26xx)  FC card?

  17. "fcinfo hba-port" can't display target mode FC coonection speed, need modify file uts/common/io/comstar/port/fct/fct.c

    function fct_get_adapter_port_attr() add

    #define PORT_SPEED_16G  32

    /* add supported speed */

            if (attr->supported_speed & PORT_SPEED_16G)

                    port_attr->PortSupportedSpeed |= FC_HBA_PORTSPEED_16GBIT;

    /* add current speed */

              case PORT_SPEED_16G:

                            port_attr->PortSpeed = FC_HBA_PORTSPEED_16GBIT;



  18. I just added an IOCrest / Syba ASMedia 1061 based card to the HCL list as incompatible, but I see another person had no issues with the same controller (different branded card).  From what I can see googling, the AsMedia chip is very hit and miss regardless of OS.  This is what I see in my system log files (in Napp-it) over and over and over again as files are read...would be curious if anyone knows what these errors mean or how to get it working?

    UPDATE:  I have decided to delete my entries from the HCL.  After 1 month of successfully using the HighPoint Technologies Rocket 620A (Marvel 88SE9120), I picked up enough CRC errors in the background that the drive was dropped again.  After some troubleshooting and research, it appears the issue is actually the drive, a Samsung (Seagate) ST2000LM003, when used with either of these controllers.  Unfortunately I am no longer able to continue this experiment and need to move on.  From what I have seen, I believe these cards would work fine under OI 151a9, but certain drives apparently do not play nice with them.  They worked fine short term with some WD Red drives, but I am unable to test long term stability at this time.

    For future reference, should anyone choose to continue where I left off, the cards are:

    Make/Model                                      Chipset                            Driver          OS
    IOCrest (Syba) SY-PEX40039             Asmedia ASM1061           AHCI           151a9
    HighPoint Technologies Rocket 620A  Marvel 88SE9120              AHCI           151a9

    Although I am running a9, I believe these only require OI 151a8 or better to pick up the revised AHCI driver.
