Cool, thanks for the info here everyone. 

I just tried the workaround on a PE r815 with H800s and H200 adapters and everything seems ok so far. Everything shows up with "omreport storage controller"

(Note that, if you’re using Debian Squeeze, you’ll most likely need a newer megaraid_sas driver [1].) If you’re using a 3.0+ kernel and OMSA 6.5, you may need to use the uname26 workaround.

This is also available, 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.
