    Hi.

    I am building a ZFS-based file server. After some research I settled on two additional HighPoint RocketRaid640L cards as they seemed to be supported by FreeBSD 9 out of the box, that is: out of the ahci module. The cards in my research were the ones with two 9128 Marvell controllers. What I got from my vendor though was the cards with the same name, sporting only one 9230 controller.

    I tentatively unpacked one card and booted with two 2TB Seagate disks attached to it. They were displayed in the POST screen and hitting Ctrl-M brought up the Marvell BIOS, showing the disks. I exited the BIOS without creating a RAID as I want ZFS managing the disks and booted into FreeBSD.

    Judging by the print-outs, which you can find below, the card was detected by the ahci module (according to pciconfig), but camcontrol shows only my primary SSD disk on the motherboard's controller. I tried flashing the card with a non-RAID BIOS, but HighPoint's flash utility says that there's no suitable device found to flash.

    Is the 9230 controller compatible with FreeBSD 9? Do I need to do some extra tweaking or build the kernel myself? (the ahci module is currently built into the kernel)

    Reviewing my own dmesgoutput, can the following two lines be the culprits?
    Code:
    (aprobe1:ahcich7:0:0:0): Unexpected signature 0x44d8
    (aprobe0:ahcich1:0:0:0): Unexpected signature 0x44d8
    


    Some additional information:

    Tried the card in Windows 7 environment and it worked fine there (after installing drivers for Rocket 640L as RocketRaid drivers didn't work) with all the disks showing up, so we can eliminated hardware problem.

    Marvell controllers not very closely follow the AHCI specification. They need specific quirks to handle the specifics. Try to add to sys/dev/ahci/ahci.c file the line:

    Code:
    {0x92301b4b, 0x00, "Marvell 88SE9230",  AHCI_Q_NOBSYRES|AHCI_Q_ALTSIG},


    along to existing ones, rebuild kernel and report results.

    It went faster and smoother to build the kernel than I feared. Mind you, the last time I built a Linux kernel was on a 486 with the source stored on Zip100 drive, attached via the parallel port. :)

    Anyway, the result is success!

    The controller is now detected properly during boot-up and the two disks are visible, along with "Marvell Console 1.01" (whatever it is for):

    That is probably Marvell's proprietary RAID configuration interface.

    Just committed patch to the FreeBSD HEAD branch. It should get into the next FreeBSD 9.1 release.

    Re: FreeBSD 9 & HighPoint 640L with 88SE9230 controller - de

    Hi all,

    This problem looks to be the same problem as I have with a Plextor M6E PCI-e SSD drive. It's also described here with no apparent fix:

    https://www.freebsd.org/cgi/query-pr.cgi?pr=amd64/190050

    Only this uses the Marvell 88SS9183 controller. Do you think Mav's solution described here would work for that controller as well?

    https://forums.freebsd.org/viewtopic.php?p=179880#p179880

    The weird thing is that even Linux doesn't recognize the hardware, I used the latest kernel and it finds the controller but nothing else:

    Code:
    04:00.0 SATA controller [0106]: Device [1c28] (rev 14) (prog-if 01 [AHCI 1.0])
    82:00.0 SATA controller [0106]: Device [1c28] (rev 14) (prog-if 01 [AHCI 1.0])
    

    Under FreeBSD a camcontrol rescan all gives:

    Code:
    (aprobe0:ahcich0:0:0:0): Unexpected signature 0xffff


    I already updated my BIOS and the SSD firmware, I can see the Plextor logo when I boot and I can select the device as boot device in my BIOS as well.

    Any idea?

    One more thing, how can I apply/test Mav's fix with an installation boot DVD? I have no FreeBSD installation ready yet and I want to install it on the SSDs, so how can I apply this fix to the install media and later on to the kernel it's installing?

    Thanks!

    Well, it works fine under Gentoo Linux. Drives are visible, just not FreeBSD no matter what version?

    Any idea? (bump)

    Nobody? I really have to move to Linux to use a standard AHCI drive?

    Did you try a snapshot of FreeBSD 11 or 10-STABLE?

    Not the latter one but I did try 11-CURRENT, few days old. I also tried 9.2, 9.3 and 10-STABLE.

    Patch for various Marvell AHCI controllers was committed and merged to 10/9-STABLE couple weeks ago.
     
    wblock@ thanks for this.

    Thanks! I'll test it with the M6e and update the bug report.
