How to update LSI 9211-8i firmware

idiocracy
 Share

Firstly i wanted to check the firmware version, and then update it if needed. But i've found it's very hard to find the firmware, but also the sas2flsh tool. On their website it looks like P8 is the newest, but there's several guides that reference P19 & P20. So hopefully there's someone here with some experience.

 

Nope....Just nope.

I also found the instructions very intimidating. There is an easy cheat if you haven't bought one yet. You can buy them already flashed to IT mode.

As long as anyone is oppressed, no one will be safe and free.

One has to be proactive, not reactive, to ensure the safety of one's data so backup your data! And RAID is NOT a backup!

I did. And it is working. But i just wanted to check the firmware version. And potentially update it as i've read there can be performance improvements.

Nope....Just nope.

If it's working the way you want, I wouldn't worry about upgrading the firmware. It's the old, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" principle.

Well, At least i'd like to just check what firmware it's using. You know how to do that?
But yeah, you're probably right that i should leave it alone.

Nope....Just nope.

To be honest, I still don't know.

If you just want to check what firmware its using, then you can probably use megacli or storcli for that. 

 

For MegaCLI it's 

MegaCli64 -AdpAllInfo -aAll

For StorCLI it's

storcli64 /c0 show

You should be able to use sas2flsh as well

sas2flsh -listall 

 

Here is their P20 firmware with sas2flsh and documentation: https://docs.broadcom.com/docs/12350530
