Not an installation issue, and it is behaving correctly. The OS does not automatically update the firmware (at least not for FreeNAS).

Normally this would have been something to assigned to Josh, but since he's gone, I don't know who handles it.

Could you show output of:

So it is not a FreeNAS problem. It is somewhere between the firmware and the driver. I don't remember such cases, but I'll take a look on how it works.

I'm curious, why in your original sas2flash output there is only one HBA, while now you show sysctls for two? What sas2flash thinks about both of them? Is the firmware different there somehow?

#9 Updated by Eric Loewenthal over 3 years ago

Now that I think about this, it may be something like that Intel SSD that was actually an SAS2008 with four SAS SSD controllers attached and a somewhat-custom firmware. Another user once managed to accidentally flash his with the regular P20 IT firmware and ruined the thing.

Of course, this is speculation on my part.

Hmm. If there are such alternative things exist, then it seems like there is nothing to do for us here. This warning should just be ignored. Actually those version checks may gone at some point, since Broadcom/LSI is recently released newer generation of cards, that will use existing mpr(4) driver with existing numeration, but with independent firmware versions starting from 1.
