  1. I submitted a support ticket to Broadcom and after one week - no response. Not too impressed there. Again - anyone out there running this controller with a SSD drive attached and using this TRIM plugin with success? What is the down side of not running TRIM? I can leave the SSD drive connected to my 9305, but no TRIM. It has crashed my sever twice, so I have disabled this plugin.
  2. The specs say that the SAS3224 does support SSD, but no mention of TRIM compatibility. I have opened a support ticket with Broadcom specifically asking if this controller supports SSD's and TRIM. I'll report back once I get the official answer. I would like to hear from anyone who has this card and has SSD's connected to it, and of course has the TRIM plugin working.
  3. Can anyone confirm if the LSI 9305-24i HBA works with the SSD TRIM plugin? I have a Samsung 860 EVO 1tb as my cache and I'm having issues trying to run the TRIM command. I read some where that older LSI cards did not like the TRIM command. The fix back then was to use the motherboard sata ports, but I hope I don't have to do that.
  4. Did you get a chance to upgrade your firmware on your 9305-24? Do you happen to have an SSD drive connected to it? If yes, any issues and does TRIM work or do you need to keep that disabled? I ask because I enabled TRIM and had some errors and then disk 1 red balled. Before I turn TRIM back on, I want to be sure our 9305's are compatible with TRIM. I read in another thread that some LSI HBA cards do not support TRIM with SSD drives. I also was thinking maybe the new firmware upgrade would fix it.
  5. I installed a samsung 860 evo ssd drive a few weeks ago (working good) and then had a notification from the Fix Common problems that I need to enable Trim, so I did. I set it to run monthly on the 15th, so it tried to run last night. Today I see this error in my log: Jul 15 00:02:01 Tower kernel: sd 1:0:8:0: [sdj] tag#27 UNKNOWN(0x2003) Result: hostbyte=0x00 driverbyte=0x08 Jul 15 00:02:01 Tower kernel: sd 1:0:8:0: [sdj] tag#27 Sense Key : 0x5 [current] Jul 15 00:02:01 Tower kernel: sd 1:0:8:0: [sdj] tag#27 ASC=0x21 ASCQ=0x0 Jul 15 00:02:01 Tower kernel: sd 1:0:8:0: [
  6. @ Limetech - any help here with these errors? How can I resolve these so I have no errors?
  7. I found a couple more errors in the syslog. Jul 5 04:29:24 Tower kernel: diskload cpuset=/ mems_allowed=0 Jul 5 04:29:24 Tower kernel: CPU: 5 PID: 10492 Comm: diskload Not tainted 4.14.49-unRAID #1 Jul 5 04:29:24 Tower kernel: Hardware name: Supermicro Super Server/X11SSM-F, BIOS 2.0a 03/09/2017 Jul 5 04:29:24 Tower kernel: Call Trace: In the efforts to see if a clean syslog can be true, I post here again, and this time I include full syslog file. Thank you syslog.txt
  8. Server is running great and no issues with performance, or anything else. However I did notice a few log entries that I don't recall seeing the past. They may have nothing to do with 6.5.3. Server has been up for about 2 days and 9 hours, and I see 3 entries in my syslog: Jun 29 03:41:13 Tower nginx: 2018/06/29 03:41:13 [error] 10391#10391: *296946 recv() failed (104: Connection reset by peer) while reading response header from upstream, client: 127.0.0.1, server: , request: "POST /webGui/include/DeviceList.php HTTP/1.1", upstream: "fastcgi://unix:/var/run/php5-fpm.so

  10. upgraded from 6.5.1 and no issues so far.
  11. Great trick, thank you! I upgraded my cache drive and got the error saying I needed to recreate the image file. I was worried that I would have to reconfigure everything, but not the case. It was a quick and easy fix and all of my template settings were saved and the app settings were all saved too, so I didn't do anything but install the docker apps from Previous tab. Thanks Squid!
  12. Thank you! Good to know. it looks like it had about a page full of those log entries, and now they have stopped.
  13. I'm running 6.5.1 One of my cache drives died and I don't have a spare right now. Therefore I stopped the array, set the cache device count back to 1 and then started the array. Everything looks good with 1 cache drive and my files are intact on the cache drive. Everything seems to be running good, except my syslog is filling up with the following entries (sdm is my cache drive): Jun 17 11:41:59 Tower kernel: BTRFS info (device sdm1): found 4 extents Jun 17 11:42:00 Tower kernel: BTRFS info (device sdm1): relocating block group 6366538235904 flags data He
  14. Good points and I understand that. I didn't get much feedback when posting questions here about the 16i card so I went the safer route and got the LSI 9305-24i
  15. Thanks I agree, that is the safe strategy and normally what I do. That said, when they say there are 12 defects, means you should at least assess if they impact unraid setup. This is a minor dot lease and after reviewing what this fw update fixes, they are very minor. I didn't see anything in the change log that would impact performance in unraid. For those that want to see what the 12 fixes changed, see below. I'm sorry this is a long post, but this way these items will be easy to search on this forum.

  16. By the way, there is a new firmware available, came out May 20, 2018. See my other post, https://lime-technology.com/forums/topic/11753-sata-controller-cards/?page=24 Did you update yet?
  17. I went with LSI cables for two of the ports and Supermicro cables for the other two. I hope they are more relieable than the crappy Trip Lite ones that get errors if you just look at them. LSI 9305-24i arrived and will install soon. After checking the website, I see there is a new firmware release. While the hw capatibility list says works Out Of the Box, has anyone updated their firmware to this latest version, 16.00.01.00 - released May 20, 2018? https://www.broadcom.com/products/storage/host-bus-adapters/sas-9305-24i#downloads Trying to decide if I leave the fi
  18. cool - thank you for sharing. The hw compatibility list shows the 9305 24 working out of the box so I hope that is correct for my Supermicro X11SSM-F mb. Which breakout cables did you go with? I have tried a few different brands and found the Trip Lite ones are very sensitive and even a little pressure from the case door pressing on them will cause errors. I'm now trying LSI cables and SuperMircro brand. I'm also trying to use right angle drive connectors so the case side door doesn't even touch them.
  19. Thank you! My 9305-24i was delivered today. Did you install it in a 8x slot or a 16x slot? I know it's a 8x card and the 16x slot won't help with anything, but I was curious if it worked ok in a 16x slot. Very cool that we don't have do update firmware or mess with drivers. ?
  20. Will the new LSI SAS 9400-16i sata card work with this new version of unraid? Drivers included or I would have to manually install them? update: nevermind, that card is not on the compatibility list. Will the LSI 9305-16i be supported soon? otherwise I will have to go with the LSI 9305-24i
  21. I'm looking to buy the LSI SAS 9400-16i. Anyone using this card?
  22. Anyone using the LSI SAS 9400-16i card in your unraid server? This card can drive 16 sata drives and I need more ports. update: After reading more, this card is way overkill and plus it is NOT on the hardware compatibility list. I also noticed that the LSI 9305-16i is not on the list. I guess I will have to go with the LSI 9305-24i because it is on the list and recommended. For LSI cables, I see LSI LSI00410 0.6m Internal Cable SFF8643 to x4 SATA. I'm looking for a recommendation on cables. I'm looking for the 90 degree facing down sata connecti
  23. hum..ok will do. Weird how I can all the sudden have a cable issue, as I have not touched the cables in months. Thanks much for your help!
