Intel rms25cb040 disks Bus Type changing

I have a few physical disks for Storage Spaces Direct, but I can't set them up because of incorrect Bus Type (RAID instead of SATA). JBOD mode enabled, disks jbod enabled too. How can I set them full JBOD with correct Bus Type?

Hello AZhda2,

 

Thank you for contacting intel Server Support.

 

Let me double-check some details from my end in order to provide you the most accurate information as possible.

As soon as possible, I will be providing you the next step.

 

Best regards,

Hello AZhda2,

 

I was doing some research and I found the following link :

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/storage/storage-spaces/storage-spaces-direct-hardwar...

 

The link provides more details about the hardware requirements that you will need in order to implement this type of configuration and also indicates that the RAID Controllers Cards are not comparable with this implementation.

Please let me know if there is anything else I can help you with.

Hello Emeth. Thank you for your reply.

 

I saw this topic and it says about pass-through mode, which is jbod mode.

I have an experience with the same issue but a different raid-controller (that was MegaRAID Avago). There was a controller option you could set to a JBOD mode and it worked great (SAS BusType instead of RAID).

But I can't find such option here.

Hello AZhda2,

 

Thank you for replying back.

 

Yes, it mentions the configuration about the pass-through mode (IT Mode); moreover, it is possible only if you are using a Host-bus Adapter (HBA).

In your case, due to the fact that you are trying to implement this configuration with a RAID Controller Card is not supported according to this article from Microsoft.

 

Let me verify those details with the engineering department in order to double-check the information and see if we can replicate this configuration in our labs as well and provide you the most accurate information.

 

As soon as possible, I will be contacting you back in order to proceed with the next step.

 

Best regards,

Hello AZhda2,

 

I was reviewing this information with the engineering department and they confirm that Storage Spaces Direct is not supported and recommended if you are trying to implement it with a RAID Controller.

 

We understand that you were able to configure it using the MegaRAID Avago; moreover, as per Microsoft this type of configuration can cause some performance issues within your system.

 

Our best recommendation will be to open a ticket with Microsoft.

You can contact their technical support team in order to verify the reason why this type of implementations are not validated and you will have a better understanding of those details.

 

Have a wonderful day.
