IBM M5014 (LSI 9260) - WD Red 3 To compatibility

3 posts in this topic


to test Windows 2012R2 essentials on my homeserver, I've just swapped my raid card from RocketRaid 2720SGL (previously used with ZFS) to some IBM M5014 crossflashed to last lsi 9260-8i firmware.

All my WD Red 3To (Nasware 1.0) never spin and can't be detected (6 ones).

Same issue with ASmedia motherboard controller, no problem with intel or Highpoint.

If a plug sata power connector on disk without any sata connection, never spin too.

If I plug some Velociraptor 1 To, WD green 2 To, Samsung HD204UI or Seagate NAS HDD 4 To disks, no problem at all.

I've tried various firmwares (IBM, Intel, LSI) and a new M5104 card too (I've 3 of them in stock) without success.

I've thinking about compatibility issue but I've seen the same hardware configuration on some posts or articles.

So, any idea?

Thanks for your answers ;).
