I have PE sc 1435 servers with LSI Perc5/iR RAID sata/sas controller.
My HDDS are all Seagate Cheetah T10 ST3300555SS 300Gb firmware T105; I bought a HD replacement but raid controller indicates it how "wrong type".
May be a firmware problem?
or is simply broken?
If there is a firmware problem, can I upgrade old HDD (without loss data)? or downgrade new HDD?
If you are certain the drive is the same kind then I would say that it is that the controller is out of date on the driver and firmware.
I assume you are referring to the SAS 5/ir and not the Perc 5/i in the server. Here are the links you will need for the updates.
Let me know if this resolves the issue.
my card have just the firmware Dell SAS 5/iR Adapter, v.00.10.51.00.06.12.05.00 , A04
I have tried the HDD in another identical server with the same result
do you think that differents firmware is not a problem for raid?
Have you run the HDD update utility or have you manually updated the hard drives firmware yet?
I don't have the HDD update utility software for update HDD firmware, where can I download it?
I suppose that the update utility is for windows platform, usually I have some problem with maintenance software because i use a Gentoo linux distro...
What do you suggest to do?
where can I check the supported firmwares of SAS 5/iR raid adapter?
