    ESXi 6 U2 (3620759) - LSI MegaRAID - sas2ircu/megacli

    peterlyttle Novice



      Has anyone here had any luck getting CLI drive identification working with ESXi 6.0 U2 Build 3620759 for LSI MegaRaid Controllers - 9280-24i4e or 9361-8i?


      I've installed MegaCLI/sas2ircu but not having much luck getting any information back about the controllers?

      However when I run ./sas2ircu LIST I get the following -


      [root@host:~] ./opt/lsi/bin/sas2ircu LIST
      LSI Corporation SAS2 IR Configuration Utility.
      Version (2014.09.18)
      Copyright (c) 2008-2014 LSI Corporation. All rights reserved.
      SAS2IRCU: MPTLib2 Error 1


      with MegaCli I dont get much more.  Both -h return results but neither seem to be able to query the controllers.


      I do have MSM Storage Manager running on a VM on the host with the SLP helper which allows me to access the controllers/drives etc.


      On a maybe unrelated side note, the 9361-8i shows correctly under Health Status, however the 9280-24i4e shows the controllers and gradually adds a few of the drives (15mins, post boot to add the first one and even after 24hrs its only seeing 48 of the 60 drives) - I've already got a call open with LSI on this one.


      Anyone any ideas?
