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 www.lsi.com. Just put lsiutil in the search box.
http://www.lsi.com/DistributionSystem/AssetDocument/support/downloads/hbas/fibre_channel/hardware_drivers/LSIUtil%20Kit_1.60.zip
lsiutil is an interactive utility you can script.
