Dear team,

Regarding this VSAN cluster that we have problems with failure of SSD. Now we have issue with RMS3JC080 controller.

They reported to partner Datatek that IO Controller Avago Fusion-MPT 12GSAS SAS3008 in vSAN config msut be in Pass-Through mode, who is only supported (VMware Compatibility Matrix). In this configuratio controler is in Passthru Capable: false statusu (could this mode be thrue?).

 

Also is needed deatailed product guide/user manual of RMS3JC080.

Hi Petar,

 

What do you mean with "Software User Guide"?

Are you referring to the Intel RAID Software like ESRT2, RWC3? Or the

 

If you would like to verify the comparability of Features and the Configuration Modes for your Vmware vSAN Implementation,

my best recommendation will be to contact Vmware Support in order to double-check those details.

Dear Emeth,

 

I mean guide for update firmware.

We have problem where to find guide for install new firmware only IT mode. As we need to enable IT mode on controller in link on firmware https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/27980/Intel-12Gb-SAS3-IT-IR-Firmware?product=81864 is just one file. Can you explain steps how to enable just IT mode. We update firmware but there is IF mode (IR) and we can’t find IT mode.

Please can you provide file just for IT mode or guide.
