The version of the Intel® Rapid Storage enterprise you are currently running on your system seems to be customized by Lenovo.
Intel provides version 18.104.22.1683 as the latest version supported: Download RAID Enterprise: Intel® Rapid Storage Technology Enterprise Driver for Intel® Desktop Boards
You could try testing version above or check newer versions when they are released at: Drivers & Software
Thanks for your reply. Not sure if I missed a notification or if none was sent.
The TS410 is a small server and is running Server 2012 R2 Essentials, so I assume I don't want the Desktop software?
In Device Manager, the "Intel C600+/C220+ series chipset SATA RAID controller" version 22.214.171.1246 shows the Driver Provider as Intel and the Digital Signer as the Microsoft Windows Hardware Compatibility Publisher. When I search from Device Manager for an updated Driver, it says "The best driver software for your device is already installed."
The closest thing I can find on the Intel site is Download Intel® Rapid Storage Technology (Intel® RST) RAID Driver but that is at version 14 so it may not be the same product.
I do see that Lenovo has released version 126.96.36.1992. Here is the ReadMe:
Can you tell from that what product I have?
Perhaps more importantly, is this intermittent lost-then-found problem an issue with ANY version of RSTe? Or does it sound more like loose wires?
The 4.3 Intel® Rapid Storage Enterprise was developed for Server chipset, which would be the latest version you should try on your system. At this stage, it would be hard to offer an opinion since Server chipset does not react the same as desktop controllers.
There is a newer generic driver for Intel® Rapid Storage Technology Enterprise, it includes NVMe technology. It might work in your system.
Thank you for your message.
From the release notes for 188.8.131.523, it looks like the only thing new is the support of NVMe SSD drives, which I don' t have. Not a single issue is resolved. Two issues will not be resolved, and there are ten pages of issues listed as "being worked." It pretty much sounds like ANYTHING you do to configure or reconfigure a disk array "may result in an Unknown Error."
I did install the Lenovo version 184.108.40.2062. I also physically re-seated the drive cables.
Please let me know if the specific issue that I reported in the first post has been reported, what its issue number is, and what version release fixes that issue.
I do not have any notification from engineering team about the issue you have reported on the first port; however, it will be important to install the latest version of Intel® Rapid Storage Enterprise to see if this issue has been resolved with the latest version.
Okay thanks. Unless there is a specific fix that I need, I'll stick with the Lenovo-approved driver for now. Maybe that combined with physically re-seating the cables will be enough.
