LSI9217-8i + SAS HDDs = drives not detected after cold boot

Hi,

 

Until few days ago I used without any problem LSI9217-i8 @ HBA mode (updated to latest firmware/bios combo working for G8) with 2x 1TB Samsung SSD + 2x 1TB 2,5" WD RED HDD + 4x 3TB 3,5" WD RED HDD. Recently I replaced 3,5" drives with 4x SAS st6000nm0034 and the first issue appeared. The problem is that after cold boot (from poweroff state) SAS drives are not detected/listed by LSI controller. In the moment when LSI is being initializes I can hear SAS drives spin up but nothing else happens. If I press Force System Reset 

 

in iLo or perform soft reboot from OS all drives are detected and work fine except for iLo that display "Status : Failed" for all SAS drives event that they work fine in the OS and I can read/write them without any errors.

 

 My theory is that the SAS drives spin up too late and there's some timeout involved but I did try to tune some of few parameters inside LSI BIOS without any luck. Is there any way to make these driver work with 9217 or I should replace SAS controler? If so what model?

Are the SAS drives only labeled Seagate or are they OEM drives, like Dell or HPE?

 

IBM OEM.
