I have a Z840 with 4 x 6TB SAS drives as a RAID 10 using the onboard LSI SAS2308 controller, but as the drives are 12Gb I thought I would add a LSI SAS 9361-8i 12Gb SAS PCI-E card to increase the performance - however...
I have installed the card and CacheVault and replaced the cables with a 12Gbps Mini SAS SFF-8643 to 4xSAS SFF-8482. I changed the BIOS (M60 v02.54) to Legacy and, when booting, I can see the Mini OROM display for the 2308 controller, but nothing I do allows me to access the 9361 controller card either at Boot or in Windows. I have installed the MegaRAID Storage Manager in Windows, but it also only 'sees' the 2308 controller, but not the 9361.
I obtained a replacement 9361-8i card from my supplier in case it was a card issue, but no difference. I have tried a replacement cable set as well, also no difference.
I am either missing something or this card does not work in this system - can anyone help me here?
