Description (last modified by Christian Franke)

Hello,

We have many Servers running Server 2008+ on LSi Raid cards mainly 9260 with windows. I am wondering if and when you will support this and if we can donate to have it supported. We just get the below errors.

Smartmontools supports CSMI for SATA (but not for SAS) devices. Some LSI drivers for Windows reportedly support CSMI pass-through, see ticket #276.

I'm not aware of any other ATA/SCSI pass-through functionality in the Windows drivers for LSI RAID controllers. Do you have any evidence that this exists (e.g. a vendor specific SMART tool) ?

The following is required to add support for this controller:

  • Documentation and/or sample source code for the vendor specific pass-through functionality of the Windows driver. You might want to ask LSI support whether this is available.
  • Access to a test machine with this controller.
