The xxxx_yyy.rom

xxxx = version number

yyy = intended card vendor

my fav rom was 0079_sun.rom

As it could sleep drives

Pick what ever ROM you fancy, higher number = later version

Can't say I ever had any issue with any driver other than some versions switching of various OEM features

I am having trouble as well.

http://files.laptopvideo2go.com/hdd/sas2108.zip Redirects to 404 page http://laptopvideo2go.com/404

If there is another download location or if you can email the file it would be greatly appreciated.

Weird things going on

Press CTRL+F5 in your browser, reloads the page and it should work

Just tried it Chrome, where it worked first time I clicked but not 2nd or later
Reload the page clearing cookies worked

Must be a IPB Forums thing, don't know why or how to fix that

Tried CTRL+F5 on all browsers with same effect:


Not Found

Error: The requested address '/404' was not found on this server.

May I ask you for sending via mail pablocool86[att]gmal.com ?

What is the name of SUN alternative for LSI 9260-8i ?:)

I am building home SAN/NAS server using 9260-8i controller and HP SAS EXPANDER 12 x 3TB WD RED drives:)

I discovered last working fw on fujitsu/Intel/IBM controllers is LSI 167 fw. Above that I discovered weird behaviour of controllers. For example updating Intel and IBM from 167 to 205 or 239 results they do not see arrays created in 167. What is weird fujitsu is not issuing this fault. When I create array on ibm/intel or fujitsu in 205 or 239 fw it is seen on on all controllers. But if I import it once to fuijtsu it changes metadata of array or something. Then intel and IBM cannot import this array again. Intel and IBM can import array created in fw 205 or 239 one by one. But one import in fujitsu destroys sth.

Ki Ora, bet you never thought this thread would have this much life? 

I just got a Dell H700 from eBay to use in a Dell T20.  The Dell T20 is supposed to be compatible, according to other users but my BIOS will not see the card.  I put the H700 into my desktop computer (a home-brew ASUS based) and the BIOS and OS sees it, so it's not dead.  

I am hoping that updating the firmware on the H700 with Dell's latest will do the trick.  I tried to do this today using a DOS stick and MEGA but it didn't work.  Of course, when I run the windows based utility, it does not work..probably because I am not running it on a Dell.

Just to check, I put my 9265-8i into my T20 and the T20 sees it.. I would use it instead, but it's in production on another server.  

I do not have any Dell servers other than a few T20s.

Is there a way to upgrade the firmware on the H700 to the latest Dell H700 firmware if I don't have a Dell Server?  

Really appreciate the guidance on this..never done this before and after 2 days of pulling my hair out, I need to find some help

Best Regards

Have you tried updating via MSM ?

Can't remember the key combo at boot up to get into the BIOS, LSI is CTRL+H, Dell is different
You can update via here
Should work on the Desktop as it can see the card

H700's aren't normally tied to Dell servers, if you can see it on your desktop you should be able to update it
You haven't mucked about with the SBR and turned it into a LSI ?
quote weird that the Dell doesn't see it but does the 9265

What have you tried in updating , Megarec, or CLI util ?

Hi,

I ended up updating via the Dell Application on my Asus Desktop computer, it finally worked or maybe I just had the wrong software package to start with.

Opening MSM, the controller is locked 

Any idea how I can unlock it and use it on a non Dell?  I sorta gave up, and ordered 2 9265-8i, they are so cheap on eBay.  I would like to use the H700, if not .. going to ship it back to the seller.

If you can, send it back, 9265 won't need any modding as its basically what it needs to be and what you are trying to get the H700 to
