Oh, yes. If you’re not using the uname26 wrapper as previously described in this thread, you will have trouble seeing the H200 when using OMSA 6.5 and a 3.0+ Linux kernel.

I see the same ACPI error lines from dmesg on my system with an H200, so I think it's noise or at least unrelated.

Alessandro: lsiutil will not see the H200 [1], so you will need to use the sas2ircu utility instead if you want to use an LSI tool. This is also available from<>, although I don't know if or when it will ever be directly available from LSI. If you can, install the sas2ircu package and run `sas2ircu list`. Let us know what the output is.

SAS2IRCU: Utility Completed Successfully.

Now I'm wondering why OMSA cannot see such controller. Perhaps I have to follow an advise I read in the thread, by using some wrappers. Else I have to develop some kind of script that is going to scan the output for problematic words and report via cron.

Thanks to everybody for your help.
