I'm currently using LSI 9260-8i and it looked everything fine when I tried to setup RAID 10, but after rebooting, beeping sound started from the RAID card and MegaCli shows "Firmware state: Failed". Most weird thing is that all Error Count is zero but it failed. I updated the RAID card firmware but nothing changed.

Or is this just broken from the beginning?

  • Seems that some disk are not detectable by megacli .. can you try re installing it and check .. or check the disk first – Pratap Aug 27 '14 at 8:52
  • I would frankly recommend asking LSI support for help, they should give it if you have an LSI branded card. – Baruch Even Aug 27 '14 at 18:44

This way you go from Firmware state: Failed to Unconfigured(good)

PHYSDRV=X  # set to right slot, be careful
DEVID=$(megacli -EncInfo -aALL | grep 'Device ID' | awk '{print $4}')
megacli -PdMarkMissing -PhysDrv [$DEVID:$PHYSDRV] -a $ADAPTER -NoLog
megacli -PdPrpRmv      -PhysDrv [$DEVID:$PHYSDRV] -a $ADAPTER -NoLog  # no problem if fails
megacli -PDMakeGood    -PhysDrv [$DEVID:$PHYSDRV] -a $ADAPTER -NoLog
