LSI MegaRAID SAS 9271-8i crashing

5 posts in this topic

Hello,
anyone using LSI MegaRAID SAS 9271-8i controller ?
While controller is doing consistencycheck and I pauze it or reboot my server - controller is not booting anymore and all RAID data is lost.
We already replaced our controller with RMA - no luck.
If anyone tries to reproduce - be warned that data lost may occur!
  • Debian 7.5
  • Linux xxxxxx 3.2.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.2.57-3+deb7u2 x86_64 GNU/Linux
  • Firmware 3.240.05-2282
  • Firmware 3.340.55-3173
  • LSI MegaRAID SAS Driver 00.00.06.12-rc1

So this is during the first initialization, or during periodic consistency checking?

Problem occures always when consistency check is in progress.

Eg:

storcli /c0 set conc starttime=2014/06/20 22

Also after escalating problem to LSI they issued firmware update that ... removes ability to stop consistency check alltogether. This of course did not fix the core of the issue - data loss occures if we reboot or shutdown our machine.
