mpt-status for megaraid_sas (debian squeeze)

We have 2 IBM 3550 M3 Server which has

LSI M5014 Raid controller

and the kernel sees the driver

lspci -v | grep -iE 'raid|scsi'
01:00.0 RAID bus controller: LSI Logic / Symbios Logic LSI MegaSAS 9260 (rev 03)
        Kernel driver in use: megaraid_sas

as far i belived mpt-status s hould give a report on this controller.. but it does not .

please have a look bellow commands

root@mfdb:~# mpt-status -s
ioctl: No such device
root@mfdb:~# mpt-status -p
Checking for SCSI ID:0
ioctl: No such device
root@mfdb:~# mpt-status
ioctl: No such device

lsmod | grep mptctl
mptctl                 20982  0
mptbase                48382  1 mptctl
scsi_mod              126533  4 mptctl,sd_mod,megaraid_sas,libata

but still it does not provide the raid status.

can any one give me some light  why it could be ..
thanks for your help

The problem is that the megaraid family (the RAID family) of controllers don't use the mpt family drivers.  The mpt family is for the non-RAID SAS JBOD cards.

not aware of one.  hooking into the mrsas is problematic, unlike megaraid.  (we write this code for appliance vendors).  I am not aware of a freebie, and you probably don't want to contract a debian port for my company to do it  :)

had to install megactl
I respectfully object to closing for zero.  The question was why the mpt-status didn't work, and that question was answered correctly.
