LSI RAID Card compatibility

Hello All,

I have an LSI 9212-4i controller card.

HP sent me SATA drives instead of SAS drives, and I am a bit confused as to whether SATA is actually supported or not.

Assuming that they are not, does anyone know if this drive would be compatible with this card? I plan on buying four 1TB drives for a RAID 5 configuration.

Many thanks,

Thy are supported are you sure they are not SAS as they have the same connector. Either way if HP was supposed to send you SAS drives and didn't get a round robin RMA SAS is much better in server setup a much higher MTBF and faster most of the time also.

SAS card can connect to SATA or SAS. A SATA card cant connect to SAS. Your card is SAS so you are all good with either type of drive.

That drive will work with your card in RAID 5.

Actually I can't find a confirmation on RAID 5 specifically, but it supports some other RAID modes.

Can you share the Driver of "LSI 9212-4i" Raid card for SATA DISK . Actually, I want to install ESXi 5.0 Update 1 on HP Z420 after configuring RAID 10 disk.

Will you create a software RAID 5? According to http://h20195.www2.hp.com/v2/GetPDF.aspx/c02695372.pdf that controller doesn't support RAID 5; it supports RAID 0, 1, 1E and 10.
