It's in recent versions of FreeNAS. 9.2.1 and later IIRC.

You need to add a loader to load the driver, and I forget what that is off the top of my head.

mps3_load with a value of YES is what I think it is.

The exact value is in the release notes. I can dig it up in a while.

Note that this driver is still under development, in fact I'm meeting with LSI today about it.

Thanks,

I hadn't looked in the release notes. Seems to work OK, will need to do some more testing.

Hope the meeting went well!

Hello and I'm so happy to see that this driver is already being worked. Is there by any chance an update on the status of this driver? I don't mind running a development driver at this time, so would it be possible to elaborate some on where to add the loader for the driver?

Thanks again all!

He meant "tunable" which you can set from the GUI.

Add new -> Name: mps3_load Value: YES

Reboot the system and the driver should load. Your Mileage May Vary.

#6 Updated by Gabriel Zellmer about 5 years ago

Thank you Doug, that's exactly what I was looking for.

Also after some further digging, the loader Josh was unsure of is actually mpslsi3_load. I verified it existed under /boot/kernel/mpslsi3.ko in FreeNAS v9.2.1.5.

Thanks again all!

Now that mpr is in FreeBSD we should bring that in, there's a new ticket tracking that. However 9.2.1.x does have support for this card via mpssas3
