MegaRAID SAS 9341-4i incompatible with ESXI 7.0 U1?

Jump to solution

I'm setting up a new server right now, my main controller (Broadcom 9440-8i) was detected automatically by ESXI and the NVMe RAID is working fine.

However, Broadcom 9341-4i is not detected. I checked the VMware compatibility guide and downloaded driver "lsi_mr3 version 7.705.09.00-1OEM" which is listed for ESXi 7.0 U1.

After a reboot I was greeted with a pink debug screen:

I used the following command to install the driver:

esxcli software vib install -v /vmfs/volumes/xxxx-xxxx-xxxx/drivers/lsi-mr3-7.705.09.00-1OEM.670.0.0.8169922.x86_64.vib

The PCIe slot of the 2nd RAID controller wasn't set to EFI. ESXI 7.0 detected the controller automatically, without the need of drivers once the BIOS settings were adjusted.
