ESXi CLI - Unable flash firmware to SSD Intel S4500 series (S4510) - DELL R630 H730P (LSI SAS 3108)

New Contributor

Hi Team.

On a DELL PowerEdge R630 server, with VMWare ESXi 7 (ESXi-7.0U3j-21053776-standard), with a PERC H730P Mini controller (LSI SAS 3108, driver lsi_mr3, v7.718.02.00-1vmw.703.0.20.19193900), I am unable to use of your CLI utility sst v1.5 and/or v1.6 to upload new firmware to SSD drives.

There are two SSD drives in the server - Intel S4510 (SSDSC2KB960G8) in RAID1.

The utility does not see SSD drives.
After command ESXi bash:
./sst show -ssd
No results

I tried the command:
./sst set -system EnableLSIAdapter=true
Syntax Error: Invalid command. Error at or around '='.

Even if I changed/edited the sst_config.xml file and changed "EnableLSIAdapter" from "false" to "true" in it, the same result - the sst utility does not see SSDs.

perccli displays information about SSD drives:

Please help how to upload new firmware to SSD in ESXi 7 on PERC H730P Mini controller using CLI and sst. Thank you

Hi Dzmitry,

Same issue here - INTEL SSD Drives are Online in LSI MegaRAID under ESXI 7.0U3 - ./sst -ssd provides no output for drives connected via RAID Adapter. PCI-E NVMI SSD is visible just OK.

Thanks! Жыве Беларусь!
