isdct show -intelssd produces No results [545s / Linux]

I just got a new Intel 545s SSD, and found out it's using 512B block size by default. I'm trying to change it to 4096B using isdct tool.

I'm doing it all on Debian testing Linux (x86_64). I downloaded the tool from here: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/27497?v=t Download Intel® SSD Data Center Tool and installed 64-bit deb file.

Running the tool (as root) produces this:

isdct show -a -intelssd

 

 

No results

I enabled logging, and that's what I see in the log. So it's able to find the device, but something is still wrong.

Hello Shmerl .,

 

 

Thank you for your interest in the Intel® SSD 545s Series.

The reason behind the output that you are getting from the Intel® SSD Data Center Tool is that the Intel® SSD 545s Series is a Consumer SSD, not a Data Center SSD. You can check the SSDs compatible with the tool here (https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/27497?v=t https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/27497?v=t):

 

 

Besides that, please keep in mind that our Consumer SSDs (https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/products/memory-storage/solid-state-drives/consumer-ssds.htm... https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/products/memory-storage/solid-state-drives/consumer-ssds.htm...) only support the standard 512 KB block size, so the change that you intend to perform is not possible.

 

 

If you are interested in this kind of modifications, please check our Data Center SSDs, https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/products/memory-storage/solid-state-drives/data-center-ssds.... https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/products/memory-storage/solid-state-drives/data-center-ssds.....

 

 

If you have any question, don't hesitate to contact us.

 

 

Regards,

 

Andres V.
