    FreeNAS on supermicro board with 2 HBA's

    Hello Community, I'm testing a new system prior installing in production. During testing i'm running into some unexpected behavior and am trying to diagnose what could be the cause. I've installed FreeNAS onto 2 SSD's in a mirror, in bios mode from a USB drive. After the installation...

    Upgrading my existing server, looking for ideas concerning pool sizes, 5.25" enclosures and SAS HBAs.

    Hi. My server has been running FreeNAS for ~3 years now without any significant problems and I'd be a happy camper if it weren't for the lack of free space (my two pools are at over 95% capacity - which is, as I know, not recommended at all). The server as it is now: motherboard: Supermicro...

    LSI HBA for > 8 Ports.

    Hey, I want to virtualize Freenas on a x470d4u-2t and Proxmox. Because the 6 Sata ports on the host are all from the same controller, I probably won't be able to passthrough only 4 of them, because I need 2 for the OS. Because of that I am looking at LSI HBAs on Ebay, but most I have seen...

    New HBA w/ more than 2 SAS

    Currently I am running FreeNAS on a 24 bay supermicro machine. I ran out of PCIe 2.0 slots. I am running 2x M1015 cards that are cross flashed and the other is the 10Gb NIC. What can I get to replace the 1015s with a different HBA that supports more SAS connections 4 or more would be preferred...

    HBA cards

    I need to expand my modest FreeNAS and I am out of SATA ports. After reading around here, I understand hardware RAID is a NO-NO. However, all the HBA cards I see (Newegg, filter to LSI, Broadcom, Avago) have the word "RAID" or "MEGARAID" in their descrition. How do I know if those cards can...

    LSI HBA Firmware vs Driver Version

    LSI SAS 9207-8i IT Mode LSI00301 Info: Should I update the firmware version at all? From what I have gathered by reading through forum posts is that if I see "mps" I am in luck as my LSI HBA card is definitely flashed to IT Mode. I am currently troubleshooting slow raid-z2 SMB read speeds...

    Walkthrough: Crossflash Dell PERC H310

    I hope my personal experience on this is helpful for others! I utilized OCR software to capture some of the command outputs in text format. That's something which generally seem to be missing from forum posts on this topic. A Dell PERC H310 was flashed, using a Dell PowerEdge R720xd. Software...

    Controller IT mode question

    Firstly, I apologize if this question is in the wrong section, which it likely is. My question is that I have recently "inherited" a Supermicro server chassis (SC826) in brand new condition, despite being rather old. The chassis has great hardware specs, but includes a 3ware 9650SE card with 12...

    SOLVED Booting (not) from HBA

    I am doing a build with 6 drives and also have a SATA SSD I want to use as FreeNAS boot drive. My E3C226D2I has 6 SATA ports and I have an LSI 9217-8i (in IR mode) which I flashed with the latest firmware and BIOS. I somehow trust the motherboard SATA ports more than the LSI card (unjustified...

    LSI 9211-4i not detected.

    I just recently got an LSI 9211-4i and it does not show up in bios at all, nor does it show in any OS. I tried the card in four different systems with three different chipsets and multiple pci slots where possible. Here are the four systems used for testing. RIG1: HP Proliant Microserver G8...

    Direct Attached Storage: what would I need for it?

    Hi, I'm a total noob when it comes to "enterprise" (dc) hardware and peripherals. So I know that I want to extend my NAS capacity, and I could install one of those fancy LSI controllers. There's no space inside anymore, that's why I'm looking for an external solution. From the SAS basics...
