A twitter call to say nice things about technology sparked interesting threads

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/05/27

A while ago [Archive.is] Adam Jacob on Twitter: “Let’s say nice things about technology today. I’ll start. If it wasn’t for @lkanies and @puppetize, there is no way we would have been able to adapt as an industry to the rise of the cloud. Quote tweet me with your own.” sparked some interesting threads.

First posts are below; click on them to see the full threads.

Would lvmraid have been improved over 2019? (back then: very single threaded, and does not leverage anything of the power of the actual device)

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/10/18

Reminder to self to check out if things have improved over time: [WayBack] Kristian Köhntopp on Twitter: “Trying my lvmraid kata from yesterday in real hardware was very frustrating. Everything is very single threaded, and does not leverage anything of the power of the actual device. … Basically, my linear-to-raid conversion idea died in the crib.” described to 2019 situation:

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

More in depth steps with images:

Refurbish the battery on an HP P410 BBWC | Opensource Blog

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/11/19

TL;DR: BBWC are using NiMh batteries that you can replace with bigger ones.

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:
