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!

anybody able to speak to this? also, i know that these discussions have been geared towards esxi; will it work on straight esx?

thanks!

I would expect that the driver would behave in the exact same manner.

Hi there ppl!

First of all, thanks for this oem.tgz!

I have included it on the installation CD and added it to the boot sequence.
Now my discs are recognized. But they are not recognized as RAID (despite the fact that I created a Raid 1).

Thanks in advance!

Hello Ripka, the sil3132 series is a software RAID controller. ESX(i) doesn't support software RAID so the best you'll get is individual disks.

Damn! I specially bought that card thinking it was hardware based RAID.

How can I tell if a card is software based or not?

Is there any card you recommend to install this system using a RAID?

Thanks in advance!

I would look at a Dell Perc 5 /6. You get hardware RAID plus health status in ESXi.

Thanks for the tip, but I think I won't be able to get one of those cards in my country (Argentina).

Is there any known and supported hardware-based-raid-cards list?
(not the hardware compatibility page)

Thanks for your time!

Cheers so much Dave!

I have a RocketRAID 231x. It recognises the 4 disks as individual 1TB drives now but not as a 3TB RAID 5 that is currently configured.

Any ideas? I'm hoping this isn't also a software based RAID.

As far as I know Sil3132 devices are software based RAID.
