Important Information

Some SAS5/E Controllers have been incorrectly programmed to the same SAS address of "123456789abcde99". This may cause an address conflict during setup if there are multiple SAS5/E controllers sharing a common storage enclosure.

The configured SAS 5/E SAS address can be identified by entering the SAS 5/E Configuration Utility. The SAS address is displayed in the "Adapter Properties" menu for each listed controller. Enter the Configuration Utility by pressing CTRL-C at POST. Select a specific adapter on the list to enter its "Adapter Properties" menu.

The SAS address can also be determined through the MDSM topology page.

The SAS5EADD tool discovers all the SAS5/E Controllers on the system and reprograms SAS addresses to a unique SAS address for only those SAS5/E Controllers that are found to have the SAS address "123456789abcde99".

This utility may not be used for any purpose other than updating the SAS address for the controllers programmed incorrectly from the factory as described above.
