3Ware: Smart Controller Type settings won't persist across multiple drives.

Recommended Posts



I'm currently using a 3Ware 9650SE-24. I currently have a mix of 10 drives connected. 6 8TB data drives, 1 8TB Parity drive, 1 6TB cache drive and 2 3TB drives that are unassigned.


When I go into the disk settings, select 3Ware as the controller type, set the correct drive, I get back the smart data. Then I select "Done". 


The problem that I'm running into is when I get to the third drive the settings for the previous two drives get wiped out. 


I was wondering if anybody has seen this type of behavior and if there's some type of work around? 


I doubled checked the flash drive and I can write a file to /boot. So I think the USB device is fine. 


Thanks for any feedback.
