LSI/Broadcom 9305 does not see any disks

Hey, lets hide the driver that will move Solaris forward.



Solaris 11.4 (x86), HBA SAS3224 / 9305-16e (LSI/Avago/Broadcom) missing Disks

Issue:

I have a jbod with SAS3 drives in it that I want to use in a Solaris x86 zfs pool. The issue comes in when I try to use a LSI/Broadcom 9305-16e that utilizes the SAS3224 controller. What happens you ask? You can NOT see any drives or controller(s) for that matter. I have used 9200's before and they worked just fine. LSI/Broadcom says the 9305's should work. Oracle squeeks out of the conversation because its not on their HCL.

Resolution:

well after weeks of mind numbing research and then finally throwing my hands up. An admin passes on a command that worked just fine. I thought to myself, "why in the hell isn't this all over a forum or at least some some small conversation between two storage admins on the internet?

From a command:     update_drv -a -i "pciex1000,c9" lsc

Try it, your mileage may vary.           Early 2019
