Re: LSI 9240-8i works with Win7-VM but not with Linux-VMs
OK, here is an update....quite some time, I know but I finally solved it...well, sort of.
The M1015 would work under vmdirectpath inside a Win7 VM,
but not inside a linux VM.
I ended up trying LOTS of drivers and linux distros, along with
firmware updates of the card...
...today I can confirm that the problem must be on the side of the
linux drivers, provided by LSI (megaraid_sas).
How can I tell?
Well, I finally found a way to cross-flash my IBM M1015 to a LSI 9210-8i.
That's right, I (cross-)flashed it to a HBA and into IT mode!!
ESXI sees the card (now mpt2sas) fine and
under vmdirectpath, a test with an ubuntu 11.04 VM went flawlessly.
