Adaptec Series 6 – 6G SAS/PCIe 2 (rev 01) [9005:028b] tools

Posting this in hope to save time to some fellow admins out there.

I had this on a server:

# lspci | grep -i adaptec
05:00.0 RAID bus controller: Adaptec Series 6 - 6G SAS/PCIe 2 (rev 01)
# lspci -n | grep '05:00'
05:00.0 0104: 9005:028b (rev 01)

Seems impossible to see the model number, not even lshw reports it. Luckily, the tools are the same for all the controllers, you can find them going to the Microsemi Adaptec Series 6 support page, clicking any controller, clicking the Storage Manager download link and then the Microsemi Adaptec ARCCONF Command Line Utility.

This is the link to the Microsemi Adaptec ARCCONF Command Line Utility Download Page at the moment of this writing.

Once installed, the tool will be in /usr/Arcconf, I created a symlink in /usr/bin

# arcconf getconfig 1
Controllers found: 1
