Hi, I just tried to upgrade my system from a Nehalem style era CPU/motherboard (a W series Xeon/P6T-WS) to a Haswell style CPU/motherboard (an E-series Haswell/Z97 motherboard), and I’ve run into some fun issues with my LSI 9240-4i controller. In particular, it’s timing out because of issues noted similar to here: https://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-stable/2011-October/064404.html . I’ve done the following so far to try and diagnose the issue: - Upgraded the firmware on the card and in the BIOS - Tweaked with the PCI-E settings (2.0/3.0; disabled power savings mode in the BIOS; etc) - Turned off 4GB “remapping” on the PCM. - Booted USB key fob-based images running: 9.3-RELEASE, 10.1-RELEASE, 10-STABLE, 11-CURRENT - Booted my original drive running 9.3-RELEASE - Booted with hw.mfi.msi=0 set in loader. - Booted with boot -v. Every time I run into MFI send command timeouts that eventually turn into Here’s the message I got (transcribed) with 11-CURRENT with boot -v:
mfi0: <Drake Skinny> port 0xe000-0xe0ff mem 0xdfc60000-0x…. on pci2 mfi0: attempting to allocate 1 MSI vectors (1 supported) pci: routing MSI IRQ 264 to local APIC 0 vector 59 mfi0: using IRQ 264 for MSI mfi0: using MSI mfi0: Megaraid SAS driver Ver 4.23 mfi0: Frame 0xfffffe07f719f280 timed out command 0x1010000 Error 60 in callback from mfi_send_frame The complete screenshot for that timeout can be found here: https://people.freebsd.org/~ngie/mfi-timeout-boot-verbose.jpg What I haven’t done yet: - Exporting the volume with the old motherboard and importing it with the new motherboard (I need to do some reading before I do this though because I don’t want to toast my data by accident :(…). - Booted either Linux or Windows to make sure the controller works with the motherboard - Tried clearing events with the controller Does anyone have any thoughts or hints on this issue? Thanks!
