Hello all,

I am currently running a SUPERMICRO X10SL7-F board, I haven't had any issues yet but have read in many cases where it is suggested to Flash the LSI 2308 to IT-mode, is this something I need to do? I am currently on 11.1-U5. I am running 8 drives on the SAS ports. I currently am using a USB jump drive for the OS but want to move to SSD since I fear the life-span of USB drives is much shorter. If this is something that I need to do, can you please direct me to the latest instructions on how to perform this?

Thanks

That is something that should have been done before you created your pool and started storing data. Depending on exactly how you made the system work to begin with, changing the SAS controller firmware at this point could render your data inaccessible.

Please provide the output of camcontrol devlist and also a zpool status but give those to us in code tags.

No cross flash is needed, just an update to the firmware. I've use the attached document to flash mine a few times as updates have been needed. It's listed for an X9 board but the process is identical.
