I see you've already found a solution to your problem, in any case the
reason why megacli won't work is because megacli is for PERC controllers
(using "megaraid" family of drivers).
For SAS5/6 kind of controllers (mpt* drivers) you'd need another utility
called lsiutil.
You can find it on Just put lsiutil in the search box.
lsiutil is an interactive utility you can script.
