Experiencing poor backup performance when connecting SAS LTO to an LSI SAS HBA.
Windows Device Manager reports "This device can not start" Code 10
There are 2 firmware types for the SAS cards, Initiator-RAID and Initiator-Target.
By default the cards are shipped with the Initiator-RAID F/W.
This card needs to be updated with the Initiator-Target firmware when used with tape drives. This firmware can be downloaded from LSI's website.
