I've tried to add a PCI Express card to be able to plug eSATA hard drives to my home server (running Proxmox).

Everything is plugged but I'm stuck.

  • Is there any thing to do to setup the PCI card ?
  • What device identifier is supposed to be behind the eSATA port ? (I've tried smartctl -i with sda, sda1 and sda2)

Any help is welcome.

Which eSATA PCI-e card did use use. Which chipset does it have. Which driver does it use? Is the driver getting loaded? What is the output of pciconf or lspci? ... –  Hennes Sep 1 '13 at 17:27
    
@Hennes sorry for the reply delay. I've updated the answer. –  AsTeR Sep 16 '13 at 20:55
    
You do not seem to be the only one with problems with that card. E.g. see this link where it only worked after disabling pci-passthrough. Another post mentions that is only works after disabling passthrough on the ICH (and its internal SATA). What is going on here is unclear to me. Hopefully someone can shed some light on it. –  Hennes Sep 16 '13 at 23:22
    
Any idea about what I can do to disable this PCI-passthrough ? I'd like to add that this is a home server, which use Proxmox for virtu (maybe this will change something). –  AsTeR Sep 17 '13 at 18:17
    
Sadly no. If solid step on how to do this I would have posted them. However right now I just got some information from searching the web. :( –  Hennes Sep 17 '13 at 19:07
