LSI 9260-8i: all disks are “Unconfigured bad”

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/04/29

This is the second time in about 6 years that somehow after an ESXi reboot all of the drives on an LSI 9260-8i controller got into the state “Unconfigured bad”.

The trick to solve this is to:

  1. go into the WebBIOS of the LSI card
  2. mark all drives as “Unconfigured good”
  3. rescan for devices
  4. import the existing configuration
  5. reboot

LSI sense codes

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/04/29

A while ago, I had RAID arrays suddenly drop out with unexpected sense codes.

I had a hard time tracking down what was wrong (it ended up being a faulty LSI Multi-lane Internal SFF-8087  to SATA/SAS Cable).

This caused all sorts of unexpected failures, hard to track down to any specific sense code.

As drives are bound to fail, and finding sense codes is a bit difficult, here are a few links that might help if I ever run into trouble again:

MegaRAID “Mark Drive as Missing” and “Make Drive Offline” do not always work: your bay needs to be a hotplug one.

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/04/12

Had a hard time finding out what to do to remove a failing drive as the MegaRAID “Mark Drive as Missing” and “Make Drive Offline” didn’t give any results.

So I did as Kirus did: just pull out the from the RAID enclosure drive. Apparently the Sharkoon QuickPort Intern 3-bay isn’t a hotplug one.
