VMWare VSAN Shows Warning Controller Firmware is VMWare certified Avago MegaRAID SAS 9361-8i
I was in a POC which need to show it performance, feature, and especially compatibility with VMWare VSAN. On testing I found an alarm shows warning on item Avago (LSI) MegaRAID SAS Invader Controller
Controller firmware is VMWare certified.
I think it will not only works on Huawei Servers, but generaly it applied on any servers with Avago MegaRAID SAS 9361-8i RAID Card.
Basically you need to enable JBOD mode and then install the driver of Avago MegaRAID SAS 9361-8i RAID Card which can be downloaded on VMWare portal. Install with command:
esxcli software vib install –v /tmp/lsi-mr3-6.912.12.00-1OEM.622.214.171.12440417.x86_64.vib-no-sig-check
Also you need to install storcli driver on Broadcom page. Install with command:
esxcli software vib install –v /tmp/vmware-storcli-007.0409.0000.0000.vib -no-sig-check
