pablocool Posted January 9, 2017 Report Share Posted January 9, 2017 Hello I have problem with LSI 9265-8i. I updated firmware from the last owner of LSI - Broadcom site https://www.broadcom.com/products/storage/raid-controllers/megaraid-sas-9266-8i With latest firmware windows noted in windows manager that device is not working. Linux also issued such message on lspci command. I found last working firmware to be 23.18.0.0014. But even with the oldest available 23.7.0-0031 I have many problems with this controller. First of all I have no RAID-6 capability. Also Largest stripe size I can set is 64KB. I need 256KB which as I tested on lsi 9260 to be optimal. And finally when testing it turnes out that LSI 9265-8i is way slower than 9260-8i. See my tests with old 8x256GB drives with RAID0 and RAID5 configurations on both LSI 9265-8i and Intel RS2BL080 aka 9260-8i: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/po4kmuzyetdn1zg/AABPHw-Zopnvl5ltPfE55T69a?dl=0 What is also strange to write new firmware I need to use megarec tool. Megacli and sas2flsh say that there is no LSI controller. Maybe SBR is broken? I cannot find SBR for 2208 SOC LSI. Maybe someone could share? Also I mostly count on mobilenvidia as you use as far as I know M5016 which is IBM oem of 9265. Probably you have much experience and could share fw you use and/or SBR :) Thanks in advance and all the best in new 2017 for all raid enthusiasts Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
