I'm using MegaRaid Storage Manager for my H710P. Looks like you need to figure out what the LSI equivent is and then search on Broadcom's website to get to the driver and Megaraid manager download page.

Did a search it's using the Dell but can try some google Fu lol see what I can find to get this working the odd 9267 lsi I bought outright will. Not work but it came with a cache cade module for $35 guess I can try it on a supported card from the 9200 series

From my search on Google, I came across this article.


When I plug in SAS 9211-8i at Broadcom, all I can find are user guides but no product page. According to the article, Lenovo's M1115 is also based on the SAS2008 card like the H310. You could try getting the Megaraid software from Lenovo and see if it see the card.

I wouldn't even attempt to run hardware raid on an h310, it doesn't have caching or a BBU. It's meant to be used as an HBA

Yeah I wouldn't bother using the RAID on it, likely software RAID would be a better choice and just use it as a HBA. Something like FreeNAS or unRAID should do if you have 64GB of RAM.

You should be able to cross flash to the LSI firmware I think?

Since I had to hunt for my 9211-4i card recently, here's the 8i link: https://www.broadcom.com/support/download-search?pg=Legacy+Products&pf=Legacy+Host+Bus+Adapters&pn=SAS+9211-8i+Host+Bus+Adapter&pa=&po=&dk=

I believe you'll want this: 9211-8i_Package_P20_IR_IT_Firmware_BIOS_for_MSDOS_Windows and use the "IT" firmware.

Shouldn't need any software after that, and I'm pretty sure all Windows Server versions have LSI driver support built-in.
