Fix Issues with Drive Idling on LSI based HBA cards
Christopher (Drashna) posted a question in GeneralFor anyone that is interested: http://homeservershow.com/forums/index.php?/topic/11859-lsi-spindown-win-81win-10win-2016/&do=findComment&comment=123066 The link contains two methods to alter the driver information to properly enable idling for the controller. The first method is another link and is editing drivers. It requires editing driver files and disabling the driversigning enforcement. The second method is a registry hack.
LSI00301 9207-8i, SAS2 2308 Mustang HBA Win10 Best PracticesHello All, new user of the StableBit tools and thus new member of the community facing yet another learning curve (do they ever end in the world of computers?) I recently installed an LSI SAS2 2300 Mustang (2907-8i) HBA into a new build and have 4 drives connected to it. I installed StableBit Scanner but it is not reporting SMART data for any of the drives on that card. It does report data on my drives attached to the motherboard data ports as well as my Nvme drive. I've poured over forums looking for recent information but cant find anything definitive. I've tried HDSentinel but it couldn't report SMART info either. Is there something I can do to get access this data? I have not checked nor updated the card firmware nor do I yet know how. I have seen conflicting information regarding the need to flash the card and install drivers under Windows 10 Pro. I would greatly appreciate guidance and thanks in advance!
New HBA Storage Controller > I need some advice: Card / CablesI have reached the limit of installable drives: I am pretty sure you know this situation My motherboard can handle 6 drives and I installed one SSD and five WD Reds. Due to the fact that my data appetite is still vast, I have to buy me my first storage controller I already read a lot of threads and reviews and decided to invest my money into a controller with a LSI chipset. By the way, I just need a "simple" storage controller, no RAID or other fancy functions are needed. I am fine in investing some extra money in the newest chipset generation, because I want to use the controller for a lot of years So far so good, I am completely new to SAS, HBA, JBOD etc., therefore I need an expert advice. I already figured out two potential storage controllers:  Intel RAID Controller RS3WC080 | Specs > http://ark.intel.com/products/77345/ [sorry cannot link them]  Intel RAID Controller RS3UC080 | Specs > http://ark.intel.com/products/76066/ [sorry cannot link them] As far as I understood I have to look for a storage controller with JBOD mode, because I do not need the RAID functions and simply want to attach new drives. Am I right that  is the right decision for my setup? Are there any issues/problems I might face in installing the storage controller? Do I you have to take something into account when I add the new drive into my (lovely) pool? Thanks so much for your help and patience!
ST1000NM0001 (SAS) no SMART/temperature/age
Bas posted a topic in CompatibilityHi, I'm having some issues with getting smart data from a particular type of SAS drive. I'm running a crossflashed IBM M1015 (IT mode, LSI P20 Firmware). Other disks attached to this controller are reporting temperatures and SMART data just fine. StableBit scanner is not showing SMART data, temperatures or age. I am able to get some data with Powershell and smartctl. I've also run the Direct I/O test utility. Please see the attached files and quotes below. It would be very nice if we could get some of this data into Stablebit Scanner! Kind regards, Bas
