    Drive spindown (DS3) through LSI firmwares 9207-8i / 9211-8i possible or not?

    Hi Im in the middle of a build, which has been a long story, which I'd rather not go in too much detail with here (it upsets my blood pressure :) ) - unless there's a real need for it. Roughly put, I have an ESX build, and a IBM M5015 raid card. After much time invested, and in the end...

    Safe to use an active backplane?

    I really enjoy building FreeNAS systems, and have put together quite a few machines, for for myself, for fun, and for friends/fam. After initial trial-and-error, all builds are now similar: SuperMicro board, one or two Dell or IBM controllers as LSI 9211-8i in IT mode, and a couple of hard...

    Crossflashing LSI 9211 ?

    I've got a 9211-8i on my new build (9.10). I found it had the old outdated firmware, got the latest fw (P20) from Avago (2118it.bin), and managed to mount a USB stick with the file on it, under FAT32. I used sas2flash -fwall <mnt_path>/2118it.bin to update it, which part-worked. What I get now...
