Driver for LSI MegaRAID SAS family

384 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Here's my driver for LSI MegaRAID SAS family of controllers called SASMegaRAID.kext. This one was requested few times at InsanelyMac and other Mac-related communities.

Download link https://github.com/dukzcry/osx-goodies/releases or https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/files/file/306-sasmegaraidkext/
F.A.Q.:

Q: I can't manage controller via supplied utility

A: Only monitoring functional is supported, management is done via controller BIOS
Q: Any chance to make cards based on SAS2208 chip work?
A: Not currently, the chip belongs to the same family, but it requires a lot of handling different from common handling for supported cards.
Q: The driver loads but my device doesn't show up anywhere in profiler. What should I do?
A: Try inverting "PreferMSI" key value. It's under "Settings" dictionary in kext's plist. 
Q: macOS doesn't see my volumes
A: Set them as virtual (logical) disks in controller's BIOS. If no luck try "Uncontiguous enumeration.zip" version. See full issue report https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/forums/topic/285197-driver-for-lsi-megaraid-sas-family/?do=findComment&comment=1987665

Q: Is it possible to push more from my setup?
A: It may be.

The plist from "Unsafe settings unlocked.zip" allows tweaking of dangerous options. Before playing with them you need to detach all HDDs with critical data and attach some spare HDD for doing the tweaks. The "MaxSGL" option is number of scatter gather list entries you controller can handle. The "MaxTransferSize" determines the maximum size of data transfer (in bytes) per request your controller can catch. If you set them to some enormously big value then they will be truncated to the max values your hardware can achieve (may still be not safe enough for successful data transfers). "MaxTransferSizePerSegment" does the same but for a single SGL entry (will never be larger than MaxTransferSize). For the tests you need to stick to the system.log and start a transfer of a >= 100gb data. If the settings you set are inappropriate, you'll see the I/O errors.

Q: My Mac stopped to go sleep after i've loaded your kext.
A: This is awaited. See https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/forums/topic/285197-driver-for-lsi-megaraid-sas-family/?do=findComment&comment=1986269 Use kext from "Unsafe settings unlocked.zip" and set "AllowSleep" key to true.

Q: Your driver doesn't work for me. Are there any alternatives?
A: Yes there is one https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/forums/topic/314799-guide-z820-el-capitan-the-great-guide-sucess/?do=findComment&comment=2556863

OMG, you are doing this by yourself ? BIG KUDOS !!! Seriously...

I wish you all the luck and bravery in the world to get the job done ;)

 

BTW, are you still working on it ?

Hi, hackintom!

Yep, doing solely, but it's not so large project, as it may look :)

 

BIG KUDOS !!! Seriously...

Ah, thank you much!

 

By the way, are you still working on it ?

Yes, at my spare time, when not busy with other stuff.
The current task is to port/write some RAID management utility (i can't just use vendor utility called "megacli", because OS X doesn't have Linux/FreeBSD emulating facility), which is another medium task.

upd 18.02.12: Finished monthly driver test. My zevo zfs's data partition was attached to raid card. Kext was compiled with assertions placed on scsi path. During that time i've did what i usually do with media data: torrents (seeding all time; downloading), movies and music "consuming", massive data copying plus a bit of hdd speed tests. Nary data degradation or kernel panic. Zfs checkup result.

Hi,

Big thanks!

 

As for 9260:

Michael Bean for initial testing of 9260 card. OS X 10.7.5?

He contacted me directly via e-mail. I didn't ask him for details. Don't know under what alias he registered here, so can drop you a PM with his mail address, if you're interested.

Hi, I have a PERC 6 in Mountain Lion and using your kext disables USB and doesn't load the drives attached to the PERC, nor does it add it to the System Profiler. Any idea why it would be? The driver is loaded and shown in IORegistry Explorer.

 

Thanks.

 

*Update* USB does still work, but not until either I VNC'd in or waited a long while. I don't know which made it work.

Hi,

 

Please use SASMegaRAID_Full_Debug version and provide me with output. The driver does nothing relating to USB but your problem looks like a lockup in kext, which messes the system.

Oops, i should definitely rework MSI support. Please pick the normal driver version and set "PreferMSI" property under "Settings" dict in Info.plist to "false". Then, it should work for you.

Ah, it will be overwritten anyway by checkout from hardware. Sorry, i should go away now. Please wait, i'll fix, recompile and upload a new kext.

Wow dude!!! You're awesome. It works perfectly. All single drives (4x 2TB Western Digital Green) and 2x 300GB Velociraptors in RAID 0 are mounted. They show up as external instead of internal though. Is there a way we can make that configurable? Also, the only other thing that would have made it cosmetically perfect is if it actually showed up as a SAS controller in System Profiler instead of Parallel SCSI, but that is so not necessary. I'm just happy that my RAID drives are usable in Mountain Lion.

 

Thank you so much!

The driver doesn't interfere in SCSI data to/from device. OS X sees what was actually come from controller. Using driver for an old LSI product you'll see same behaviour: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?app=core&module=attach&section=attach&attach_rel_module=post&attach_id=65316 All are shown as external.
I may clear "removable media" bit in SCSI data coming from INQUIRY query, but i don't consider this critical, even LSI itself doesn't do it.

 

Also, the only other thing that would have made it cosmetically perfect is if it actually showed up as a SAS controller in System Profiler instead of Parallel SCSI, but that is so not necessary.

The cause of this is given in readme: "This family of controllers uses SCSI protocol for data passing, so your device will be presented as parallel SCSI controller to the system". It's impossible to change this representation. I've just used a public API, which Apple provides for 3rd parties.
Vendors being in partnership with Apple, or Apple itself (e.g. Mac Pro RAID card) may get round such limitations in their drivers, for sure. HighPoint, which doesn't pay fees to Apple has the same issue: http://www.tonymacx86.com/attachments/26370d1343835396-hpt_2720_4.png.html :D I don't know though, do their devices use SCSI protocol too or they emulate it in drivers for some reason.

Hello, Fred.
Did you meant that commit: https://github.com/d...ba061afba3feea9 ? As latest one should break nothing.
upd: Fixed in this: https://github.com/d...14be2791d77a381

 


They show up as external instead of internal though.

And i forgot, what about obvious solutions? Like option 3 or 4 from here: http://lnx2mac.blogs...disk-icons.html

Working with ... PERC6

 


Hi, I have a PERC 6 in Mountain Lion and using your kext disables USB and doesn't load the drives attached to the PERC, nor does it add it to the System Profiler

Since you had same version of driver at that time, a question for you, Fred: when you used that initial version, if it worked for you out of box, did you get "[sASMegaRAID] IRQ: ..." or else "[sASMegaRAID] MSI IR: ..." in system messages, i.e. did MSIs work for you or not?

Thanks.

Bootloader Clover, with my DSDT patch.

All hardware working except PowerManagement.

I got issue with HPET, after fiew time OSX hang, never mind for a file server it's ok without PM.

Seems to be irq with older Kext.

Build is now ok with last commit. Thanks

 

Regards

Friends, i've fixed MSI handling. Please re-download kext. This should offload your systems a bit.

Boot but without disk attached.

If i let disks attach to board it take very long time to get login screen and can't get kerboard to enter password.

Thanks. That's strange to see, if you recompiled from last revision or downloaded the latest one. Got fixed for me: http://pastebin.com/96JgX2gM . Then please set "PreferMSI" property under "Settings" dict in Info.plist to "false" or use previous version. I'm forced to set it to false for futher versions after your report :(

I just wanted to mention, the PERC 6/i that I'm using is using the 11.0.1-0048 bios from LSI and not the dell bios. I don't know if this has anything to do with Fred's being a different result. I have not yet tried your latest driver with MSI handling working yet, but I will shortly.

i've compil from last commit.

With or without drives inside and long waiting for keyboard, i can logon.

I get this in log -> IOHIDSystem: postEvent LLEventQueue overflow.

 

I try to remove dsdt.aml it's same result.

 

PreferMSI = No -> back to IRQ.

 

I hope you'll find what's wrong.

 

Regards

Fred

Thanks, i need your help.

Sympoms are awaited, since you're messing the system, which awaits for command completion which never occurs. My system had similar behaviour like your or Black Knight's when tried MSIs, but it got fixed for me with my recent edits.

PreferMSI = No -> back to IRQ.

Yes.

I hope you'll find what's wrong.

Unfortunatelly, it's not much i can else do. I've just added missed enabling of interrupt source and interrupt acknowledge (seems to be hw requirement, before it was present only in interrupt filter routine and hence was used only in case of legacy interrupts) for MSI case.

Looks like it's still using IRQ and PreferMSI is Yes in the driver. I have no delays and all seems to be working, other than 2x 2.5TB drives that I attached to the card. The two 300GB Velociraptors in RAID 0 are read/write using Tuxera NTFS, but the other 4x 2TB JBOD drives are read only using mac driver and won't mount at all using Tuxera. I'm guessing these are unrelated issues though. Not sure about the 2.5TB drives though. They show up, just won't mount.

 

*UPDATE*

 

Don't really know why, but I moved the 2x 2.5TB drives to the Intel SATA controller and now they show up and mount just fine. The only difference between them and the other drives on the PERC 6/i is that they are partitioned GUID rather than MBR. Don't know if this has anything to do with it, but I figured I'd mention it.
