Pinned topic LSI SAS Card causing a Delay boot

‏2013-09-28T20:03:20Z |

hi there ,

we have a few hs23 7875 Server having LSI SAS card running linux and Windows Server 2008 ,in both of the envirnoment when ever there is a restart

its taking 5-12 hours to show F1,some time none , once removing SAS Card the boot normal , taking 20 minutes to boot but with the sas card its 5-12 hours with all the server of the same model while hs 22 with in the same chasis taking 15 mints to boot with sas card both in windows and linux ,one thing is common with these server is the host identifier in the sas switch side is not unique only  with the 7875

 

please advise

    What do you mean the host identifier is not unique?  Are you referring to the SAS WWNs?  If so, they most definitely should be unique.

    Also, you could try disabling the uefi and legacy option rom for the CIOV card, as seen in the attached screenshot

    Which SAS switches are you using? NSSM or RSSM?  Need their current firmware levels and if you are using a BC-S with DSMs, their firmware too.  Most likely you have a zoning conflict or a failed component that is hanging the SAS bus, switch, or DSM.  

    When there are SAS problems, the reboots will take forever to load as it tries to scan the fabric.

    Yes, those SAS addresses are bogus, and are duplicates which is causing conflicts, which is causing long boot times.

    The question is why are they all the same bogus address?  Are you using BOFM?  Can you post an AMM service data for review?
