Description

Dears,
I am completely newbie with FreeNAS. For test new hardware HBA 9400-8i, I have installed FreeNAS 11. I think, the new controller should be recognized with ease and install driver but without success.
Maybe I have to do something more than I know.

When motherboard starts with the controller I can see recognized 3x HDD connected to the controller HBA 9400-8i.

Please, let me know how to fix it.
Thanks

History

#1 Updated by Alexander Motin over 1 year ago

  • Tracker changed from Bug to Feature
  • Status changed from Unscreened to Resolved
  • Priority changed from No priority to Important
  • Target version set to 11.1

Support for tri-mode LSI adapters was just recently added to FreeBSD. That code will be part of further FreeNAS 11.1, and is already present in recent nightly development builds, which you may try, if you wish.

#2 Updated by Bogus Sobczak over 1 year ago

I tired update to last nightly build (FreeNAS-11-MASTER-201706150433 (080e833)), but still there aren't new controller or disks.
Second test, fresh install from the last nightly build, and it is the same, without recognized LSI adapter.

The problem still exist.

Is it possible update driver, or configure the system to use 9400-8i in FreeNAS 11.0?

#3 Updated by Bogus Sobczak over 1 year ago

New nightly build FreeNAS-11-MASTER-201706200459 (a885982), and HBA 9400-8i is available.

#4 Updated by Alexander Motin over 1 year ago

"Available" I understand as "working". OK, Great!

#5 Updated by Bogus Sobczak over 1 year ago

Yes, you are correct. It worked for that test.

Does 11.1 beta1 include the update?

#9 Updated by Alexander Motin about 1 year ago

No. 11.1-BETA1 includes the latest driver version present in base FreeBSD, which is P2 -- "15.03.00.00-fbsd". I hope Broadcom committer will handle that themselves at some point.
