But if you’re stuck with an LSI RAID controller, here’s some hopefully helpful information because you’re probably sitting there wondering “what now. Good point, I had forgotten about that. It is caused by UEFI and there is a work around. 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 update the readme to list the required firmware version. Aimed at high performance and high availability applications, they tend to have more ports, cache, perhaps battery for the cache, and options for managing and configuring the array. However, even once that happens, they will not show up as FreeBSD CAM devices, so if you’re used to being able to do “camcontrol devlist” or other camcontrol ops, they won’t be there for management in that manner.

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. Once the M was flashed to IT mode, I was able to place the card back into the intended machine and use it with out issue.

Thank You for the education. It has been a very pleasant and flexible controller to work with, as we use them with ESXi in -IR mode as well. 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.
Joined Oct 15, Messages Thanks The takeaway from all of this? I ended up successfully flashing the M in a Dell inspiron. These cards often come without brackets or with a low-profile bracket to fit into 2U rackmount servers.
A quick search of the web turned up the same results for others during the flash process. 1708 you the adapter type and firmware revision. It is caused by UEFI and there is a work around.
Confused about that LSI card? Join the crowd …
You can do a “mfiutil show drives” to see attached drives and “mfiutil show volumes” to show the available volumes. Generally with ebay I stick to purchases from inside the USA if its an expensive purchase.
If you don’t have one I wouldn’t spend money in it. The controller selection screen there will tell you the make and firmware of your controller.

View attachment Shows you the adapter type and firmware revision. A “dmesg grep mps” would show something like: M on the way.
You need to boot into UEFI shell and use the sas2flash. If you’re confused, it is probably understandable Within FreeBSD, lai 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.
The error seems to manifest on certain Intel chipsets. What’s new New posts New resources Latest activity. Be warned that creating JBOD is almost certainly guaranteed to be overwriting what is on the disk. Joined Sep 9, Messages Thanks The card consumes around 10 watts and should have at least some airflow in order to maintain proper cooling. If you don’t, then it is under the “mfi” driver and it is a RAID card.
Lxi about that LSI card? You’re more likely to get a refund from a scammer if they are in the USA than overseas from my experience. Directly attached drives look just about the same, just fewer of them:
