Description Travis Hansen 2010-09-03 03:07:41 UTC
I have a dell perc h200 raid card and dug all over the place trying to find a configuration tool.  This is the first one I've found that actually works.  Not sure of a more sane place to find the code/utility but wanted to get something started here.

Reproducible: Always

Sorry but I don't quite understand what is the problem here. Can you elaborate please?

Comment 2 Travis Hansen 2010-09-08 02:52:52 UTC
This is a tool similar to sys-block/megacli only for new Dell PERC cards.

Does it have any real HOMEPAGE? Is it maintained?
Comment 4 Travis Hansen 2010-09-11 22:14:45 UTC
I actually have no idea.  I wasn't able to find much.  Just wanted to get something started here to see if anyone else knew of anything.
Comment 5 Thomas Capricelli 2013-03-06 18:45:42 UTC
sas2ircu is indeed the standard tool for handling dell sata/raid stuff.

There is one ebuild lying around : (surrounding text in French)

I can't find an overlay with such an ebuild though.

The ebuild mentions this homepage : 
Comment 6 Jaco Kroon 2024-01-08 12:51:51 UTC
This doesn't look like a high-touch package and we've now got 9 hosts requiring this.

Currently other than the Manifest having changed ... and the download URL being wrong, is there any other known issues?

I am thinking of just doing a once-off "drive-by".  If someone has a copy of the manual and confirm if that checksum too changed that would help ...

Given the age of this bug ...
Comment 7 Thomas Capricelli 2024-01-08 13:16:24 UTC
Err.. I dont think I still manage servers with such a card. Can't test anymore.
