Description

Just installed 3.4.3 in an ESXi on Proliant DL180G6. I wanted to use 3 disks attached to the Smart Array P410 in RAID5 mode solely for Dfly/HAMMER for backup purposes, so I configured it as passthrough in ESXi, rebooted and installed Dfly. Neither during installation, nor afterwards could I access the RAID5 array on the P410. ciss0 gets created, but seems to be malfunctioning. During boot, Dfly waits for some time after the line
ciss0: PERFORMANT Transport
before continuing.
Could #1579 be related?

All the best

ciss0: error sending BMIC ID_CTLR command (35)
device_probe_and_attach: ciss0 attach returned 35

This is definitely relevant. It fails to attach. I will take a look on the weekend with my ciss controller.

If #1579 is related, no clue. The driver was updated after #1579 but it isn't clear if it helped with Toma┼ż' issues.

I could configure and use a RAID5 on my P212 (dunno if I ever tried that). The speed wasn't the best. I tried with FreeBSD and it was similarly bad.

I hope I applied the patch and followed man build correctly, but this didn't change anything. For now, I replaced the card with a 3ware, here at least the passthrough works properly, only the 3dm2 tool to manage it seg faults on start.

Thanks anyway.

Can you please try it with "hw.ciss.force_interrupt=1" in
/boot/loader.conf?
