Hey!

There is no need to add any records to the fstab. Storage.cfg should add the storage on OS boot.
As for why it doesn't happen, can you please check the /etc/lvm/lvm.conf file and let me know what you have as value for global { event_activation }?
It looks like you may have missed my edit (Extremely appreciative of your quick responses), but it seems to be working. I'm not sure why there were errors when I first attempted it.

Glad to hear! :)

Hey!

The obvious question - have you tried rebooting again? Does the problem persist?

I had once a similar problem long ago due to the fact that the volume not being activated on boot.
What do you see when you run lvscan -v?

In my case the cause was related to the global/event_activation setting in the lvm.conf
Last time you've sent me the global/activation instead of the global/event_activation.
You can also check it to make sure it's set to 0 (zero).

Vlad, I'm gonna have to get you real drunk.. global/event_activation=0 fixed it. :)o_O:)

Hey!

A couple of obvious questions:
1) what is the generation of the cards? Am i correct to assume it's the 2nd?
2) i see there are 2 cards installed. Have you tested with only one added?
3) has this setup worked in the past and stopped after the recent kernel update?
4) is the DKMS set up correctly? What is the output when doing
ls /var/lib/initramfs-tools | sudo xargs -n1 /usr/lib/dkms/dkms_autoinstaller start?
5) after setting global/event_activation=0, have you rebooted the server?
6) have you attempted a clean installation of the drivers?
7) are the temperatures on the drives ok-ish? What is the output of fio-status -a?

Just to clarify - i have a couple of servers running with the latest kernel and ioDrive2 and ioScale2 cards in them with this drivers, so it should work eventually in your case as well.

Interesting. Am i correct to assume that the drivers do load the drive every time and it's only the LVs that are not activated? What kind of storage are you using? Is it LVM thin? I assume we're in the same timezone, so drop me a message and i can connect remotely and have a look.

yes, exactly.
lvm thin, drive added like here iodrive lvm.
Storage.cfg:
1621323479598.png
vgchange -a y vmdata - solves the problem before next reboot.
Ok, i'll drop msg when i can.

Hello all,

I have also tried to install the driver from https://github.com/RemixVSL/iomemory-vsl but made no difference (as at first, I thought the driver was the problem).

I then tried to update the firmware version but I am getting nowhere, probably because I do not know exactly how to do it. I ended up going to the WD website to download the driver and firmware but for ioXtream, I only find version 2.3.x which I do not manage to successfully compile with my 5.11 kernel libs. In the github documentation, it does say that ioXtream 80Gb can work with driver version 3.

I am out of ideas how to get this card working and if it is compatible.

Anyone has any ideas?
Thanks

It may be the case that you're using ioDrive 1st gen card.

@Vladimir Bulgaru Thanks for your reply. I did check that doc and I do see my card:
Fusion-ioioXtreme80FS4-002-081-CS188000101Fusion-io ioXtreme 80GBSingle Adapter2.0 x43
This is the same product number I get when I do fio-status -a and from what I can see, VSL v3 is supported.
Any ideas what I could do to get it working?
Thanks

On a test server today I tried to get my Fusion-IO 2 1.2tb card working. I tired version 6.1 and was able to get the script to find the headers by commenting out this list
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/pve-enterprise.list
and changing the apt sources
nano /etc/apt/sources.list
adding this
http://download.proxmox.com/debian buster pve-no-subscription
This installed the card and showed stats like temp, firmware version, etc

The next test I tried the same method to get my Fusion-IO 2 1.2gb card working with Proxmox 7.1
Commenting out this list
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/pve-enterprise.list
and changing the apt sources
nano /etc/apt/sources.list
adding this

This time I ran into some trouble

I'm not really sure what to do with this one? I wanted to say thanks to vlad for writing that script. Without that it would be quite difficult.

My test with Proxmox 7.1 was invalid because I used the wrong version of the script, so once again with the correct version of the script I tried again to get my Fusion-IO 2 1.2gb working with Proxmox 7.1.

commenting out this list
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/pve-enterprise.list

adding a line the apt sources
nano /etc/apt/sources.list deb http://download.proxmox.com/debian bullseye pve-no-subscription

This time it ran like a charm!!!

New poster, user, etc. Just installed pve for the first time yesterday. Long time Hyper-V user. Anyway, I came across your post and thought this might help:

Have you enabled SR-IOV or tried to? I was attempting to set up both storage on a FusionIO card (HP ioDrive2 Duo 2TB here) and SR-IOV for my Mellanox Connect-x 4 LS adapter. When I enabled the boot flags for iommu=on, I noticed EXACTLY the same behavior you saw above. Right now I reverted those changes as having any storage is a bit more important to me than accelerated networking.

Just a thought! hopefully this helps.

First off, thank you for this tutorial. I am out of my depths in linux but can follow instructions, and posts like these are a big help.
I have followed your tutorial and have everything built and installed, except the firmware update:

I'm having trouble recognizing if and where in the instructions the firmware is updated.
If it isn't part of the tutorial, would you mind pointing me in the direction of where I can find instructions?
The instructions on the Fusion IO USB I got with the card are for rpm packages.

Thanks in advance.
