Post Re: OEM.TGZ for the Sil3132
I would like to try to add an entry to the simple.map.

When I ask the ESXi for the Device ID I get this:

05:13.00 RAID bus controller Mass storage controller: CMD Technology Inc SiI 3124 PCI-X Serial ATA Controller Class 0104: 1095:3124

Means my device ID is "1095:3124"

I overwrote one line and now I have "1095:3124 0000:0000 storage sata_sil24.o" there. Currently I can't reboot the server but I will do that later on.

If this is not working, I'll try to refer to the driver directly.

Thanks!

Big thanks to neutralspark and Dave.Mishchenko!!

My sata controller card is now recognized by ESXi very well. First I did the mistake and used 7zip and Notepad++ under Windows and edit the simple.map. After the reboot I always ran into a pink screen error :)

I got this working with an ubuntu live cd, downloaded and edited the simple.map file under this linux again, did the reboot and the sun was shinning again :)

Hi,

Can you help me build a driver for Supermicro AOC-SASLP-MV8? It uses Marvell 88SE6480 chipset. I have identified vendor id and device id as 11ab:6485. But I have no idea how to build the driver.

Thanks.

Sadly that chipset isn't supported by the Linux 2.6.20.24 sata_mv.o drivers, so support won't be forthcoming very quickly.

I saw that there is a folder on Linux 2.6.34.1 (drivers\scsi\mvsas) which seems to be the driver for this model but I don't know how to build them for esxi. Any suggestion?

If you look here - http://www.kernelcrash.com/blog/using-a ... 009/08/22/ - and the 3.5 page he mentions you'll get an idea of what's required to compile a driver for ESXi.

What's the PCI id for your contoller. It may be that it's not included in the oem.tgz file attached to this thread. You can try to manually load the driver with vmkload_mod /path/driver. If the driver can recognise the controller then it will load and you'll be able to see the controller in the vSphere client (at least until you reboot). But if vmkload_mod works then all you have to do is to modify the oem.tgz to edit simple.map to include the pci id for your controller.


Similar to what cyntaxx, mentioned in his previous post, about not seeing the drive in VI client.

i am experiencing the same issue with the Sil3132 SATA PCIe card the OP reported working.

I was able to use his oem.tgz to load it on my ESXi 3.5 U4.

-So if the driver is detected. Why isnt it detected in the Storage Adapter list in VI client? I mean the output of lspci -p reports vmhba2. But that isnt reported in VI client.

Heres the simple.map from the OP.

heres the:
pci.ids

3124 SiI 3124 PCI-X Serial ATA Controller
1095 3124 SiI 3124 PCI-X Serial ATA Controller
3132 SiI 3132 Serial ATA Raid II Controller
0242 SiI 3132 Serial ATA Raid II Controller (Adaptec-branded)


Thanks

Should this driver support port multiplier boxes?
I have managed to get it to install fine - but it does not seem to work with a couple of port multiplier boxes I have.

Thanks!

Thanks neuralspark for the HighPoint RocketRAID 2310 PCIe driver. I was able to copy the oem.tgz file over as oem2.tgz and modify the boot.cfg to load that file and now the server sees the controller with drives. Thanks again! :D
