Issue with Diyeeni PCIe SATA Expansion Card: Only 5 out of 8 Hard Drives Detected in TrueNAS

Hello everyone,

I’m currently facing an issue with my setup involving a Diyeeni PCIe SATA Expansion Card. I have the card installed in a SHANGZHAOYUAN H97M PRO LGA 1150 Motherboard, alongside a hard drive connected directly to the motherboard. However, when I access the STORAGE section of TrueNAS, I can only see the SATA drive connected to the motherboard and five out of the eight hard drives connected to the expansion card.

Here are the specifications of my setup:

  • Motherboard: SHANGZHAOYUAN H97M PRO LGA 1150 Motherboard
  • Expansion Card: Diyeeni PCIe SATA Expansion Card (8 Ports SATA III 6Gbps)
  • Processor: Intel 4th/5th Gen Core i3/i5/i7/Pentium/Xeon
  • RAM: 32GB DDR3

I’ve already checked the physical connections and they seem fine. Does anyone have any insights or suggestions on how to troubleshoot and resolve this issue?

Related to this?

It does sound suspiciously similar to all the other reports about the SATA port replicators not working…

Fix for that landed just the other day. Dragonfish nightly update images will be up soon if folks want to confirm it resolves the issue for them. Otherwise for a .1 we’re looking at a few weeks out still.

Nightly image update with latest 6.6 kernel has landed:

If anybody who has one of these SATA expansion cards wants to give it a test upgrade, that would be much appreciated!
