I have to do this and I could use some help.

The web is full of tales of folks who have tried and failed or even tried and bricked their controllers.

Is there anyone here who has done this and made it work and can give me guidance?

This is for a private non-commercial project but I am prepared to pay for help if I can get it.

I'm in Auckland.

Is it a problem with an old card with a 2tb limit on drive size? Friend tried and failed, not sure what he did. I just bought a HBA off ebay. Old dell branded one with the right plugs on it. I tried to look into flashing a raid one since that was available locally, but it was harder than just clicking a few things and another card was easier.

Not sure if this is the same card as you have but this is what I followed when I flashed my LSI 9211-8i from raid mode to HBA mode (IT or Initiator Target which is used on the external connected cards): Linky

I've successfully flashed 3 LSI 9211-8is using this method!

What model card is it ?  I did it for an old PCIX SAS controller (can't remember the model right now) so I could use it in my SGI.

Done it a few times myself without any issues. Its a pretty straight forward exercise, not sure how people muck it up.

Saying that, I did slightly much up a Dell H700 flash to LSI 9211-8i... the flash 'worked' but it has page errors due to something... Need to reflash the card back again so it can be easy to screw up even following instructions :-)

Yes, the card is a 9211-8i.

 

I was about to try the flashing route when, all of a sudden a whole bunch of 9200-8e cards popped up on amazon for less than I had paid for my card.

 

So, now i am the happy owner of a card that is already set to IT mode. It is running just fine on my ZFS test rig with a Chenbro expander so I'll be moving it over to the production rig over the weekend.

 

Thanks for the advice.
