FreeBSD 11.1,11-stable,12-current on Dell H740p raid

Albert Shih-2
Hi,


I got issue with Dell PowerEdge R740/R640 server with H740p and FreeBSD
11.1-Release, 11-stable, 12-current

In all version I don't able to find the raid controler, so no disk...so of
course impossible to install anything.

I don't know if it's the right mailing-list, but if they are someone can
help....

In other way, I can do « any » test for making thing work and help the
freebsd team. Because Dell are still a large provider for hardware, and that would
be very sad if FreeBSD cannot run on Dell.

I still got some time (~ 1 month) before the server go in to production.

For information Debian with Linux kernel prio to 4.14 don't work either. Currently only
RedHat 7 work out of the box.

Regards.

Download the driver from

https://www.broadcom.com/products/storage/raid-controllers/megaraid-9460-8i#downloads

and try that.

Okay.

So yes it's working. I just install the server.

But...the documentation inside the archive s*cks.....

If you follow the doc with a standard memstick img it's not working because
the mrsas driver is include inside the generic kernel.

So you either need to build a personnal memstick with the src of the driver
from broadcom, or you need to build a personnal memstick without mrsas
driver and load the mrsas.so from broadcom.


Looking inside the archive it's seem the mrsas driver from broadcom are in
src version. Are someone know why they are not include in FreeBSD source ?
I didn't see (but I'm not a specialist) anything (licence) against that

Thanks for the help
