Description

We have been testing with the LSI 9305-16i and 24i 12Gb/s HBA's. They come stock with firmware version 9 on them. When the FreeNAS OS sees these, it shows an alert that the firmware on the cards (Phase 9) does not match the driver on the build (looking for Phase 12).

Now, when going to use sas3flash on the FreeNAS, you consistently get errors that the NVDATA is incompatible.

In working with support at Broadcom, we were able to figure out that the version of SAS3Flash used on FreeNAS 9.10.2-U1 is out of date and needs to be updated to the most current release of that software.

I was able to upload the latest version of sas3flash and the appropriate phase 12 firmware for both of the cards to a USB and flash them through UEFI no problem. When I went to check the status in FreeNAS (again, old version of sas3flash) it showed the newly flashed cards as have FW version 00.00.00.00 and "Undetermined" NVDATA. This would then cause the FreeNAS to kernel panic and reboot.

That being said, there is a newer driver for these LSI cards at Phase 14.

I am requesting that both sas3flash get updated to the newest version and also update the driver to P14 on the build side. Is that possible at this point?

Thank you,
-Devin

Updating sas3flash should probably be done. It is reasonable. What's about driver version, we usually rely on LSI/Broadcom developers to do updates in FreeBSD.

#3 Updated by Devin Kusek over 4 years ago

Just to add to that, in speaking wth the guys from Broadcom, they explicitly stated this particular issue has been seen more than once with FreeNAS and FreeBSD. I would assume then that if they havent pushed updates, they will be doing so soon.
