Post Re: sil3132
Well it seems I failed attaching the compiled version in my last post.
Therefore I tried to patch peetz's vib file with my sata_sil24.o.

It's my first vib tentative and I didn't test it (I removed the card from my box as it disables IOMMU support...), so I'm not even sure it'll work.

If you find this useful, I'll be more than happy to accept your donations on paypal (vilbrekin@gmail.com).

Awesome, recognized on ESXi 5.0, nice work! I have my drives in a RAID5 on the card though, and ESXi does not recognize this. Is there any way around this?

It seems in 5.1 it works.

The sil3132 Controller has been working in 5.0 since Vilbrekin's post - a few posts back.

No actually, I think when it works it works. My setup has been running steady since.

Anyway the sil source driver is probably the same as it's from 2006...

Indeed, the issue was less the sil driver itself than the unpublished common api.
Glad they added it in 5.1 anyway.

Hello,

ok the sil3132 is included in the ESXi 5.1.
But i see only my two drives and not the Raid 1 set ?

Is it right ? or should i take the driver from a few posts befor ?
or isn't it possible to install the ESXi 5.1 and the sil3132 in a raid set ?

Goofy

Typically ESXi drivers don't support software RAID controllers so the best you get is individual disks.
