Post Re: OEM.TGZ for the Sil3132
Attached is an oem.tgz based on neuralspark's oem.tgz

I needed a driver for the Adaptec AAS-1225SA (eSATA version of the AAS-1220SA), however the PCI Device ID is 0x0244 instead of 0x0242. Per nerualspark's instruction regarding the accepted cards struct, I have recompiled the sata_sil24.c from the forums to include support for the AAS-1225SA. I also renamed the 1220 and 1225 entries in the pci.ids to reflect the full Adaptec name.

Hi,

I need Sil3132 Support for ESXi 4.1.
Can I use the oem.tgz from neuralspark or is another oem needed for 4.1?
If so, can anybody please build me an oem for 4.1?

Thanks in advance

An oem file created for 4.0 will work with 4.1.

Post Re: OEM.TGZ for the Sil3132
Hi,
I seem to have a problem with the sil3132 driver :
I have 2 identical PCIe sil3132 in my server ; 2 drives are connected to the first on, 1 drive is connected to the 2nd one.
I then successfully installed the oem.tgz from this topic.
At first, all 3 drives were correctly detected ;
Since then, 1 of the 3 drives is sometimes no more detected at boot (while it is working)...
I suspect a problem with the driver managing the 2 identical PCIe cards ?
Any idea ?

Is it a specific drive that fails consistently or any one of the three?

i didn't really try to switch the different drives (they are part of a software RAID array), but the failing drive is the one which is alone on the 2nd card (the 2 drives on the 1st sata card are always correctly detected).

I'm not sure if it's usefull, but in the cases of failure to detect the 3rd drive, ESXi (4.1) still reports 4 possible drives associated with sil 3132 :
2 are correctly populated (vmhba2 & vmhba3)
2 remain empty (vmhba32 & vmhba 33).

ESXi doesn't support software RAID so you'll want to reconfigure the drives to be individual disks.

Well, in fact, the 3 disks are raw LUN mappings and the software is achieved in the guest OS.
I assume it would then be dangerous to modify the hardware position of each drive.

My experience has been that the 3132 driver here does not support sata multipliers. I'm looking for one that does, however.

Since it doesn't you'll only see the first sata device attached to your multilplier.

I'm a bit confused by this, since I've also used the driver posted by Neuralspark here on a SiL 3124 PCI-X card in a Dell server, and in that setup, with the same esata enclosure with it's built in multiplier, I was able to see all of my disks in the enclosure.

I actually wanted to make sure it wasn't a problem with the 3132 since it's new, and built a native Windows 7 installation on a separate disk, and it sees all of the disks in my enclosure, so it's not a hardware problem.

Unfortunately with esx 4.1 and the same 3132 I can only see the first device. Anyone know how to get around this? I have more disks and would like to use them all.

you have to make sure your sil3132 has the r version of the bios flash on it or it will not see enclosures
