    I can issue hdparm -I to my sata disk connected to an LSI SAS3041E-R hba, but I can not issue and of the --security-* commands.

    If the disk is moved to the native sata controller on the motherboard the --security-* commands work fine.

    Here is what I get when connected to the SAS controller:
    # hdparm --verbose --security-set-pass masterpwd /dev/sdb
    security_password="masterpwd"

    /dev/sdb:
    Issuing SECURITY_SET_PASS command, password="masterpwd", user=master, mode=high
    outgoing cdb:  85 0a 26 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 40 f1 00
    SG_IO: ATA_16 status=0x2, host_status=0x0, driver_status=0x8
    SG_IO: sb[] = {70 00 00 00 00 00 00 0a}
    SG_IO: bad/missing ATA_16 sense data::  70 00 00 00 00 00 00 0a 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00
    SECURITY_SET_PASS: Input/output error

    I'm hoping someone has been through this before and may know where the breakdown is? Is it an hdparm problem, an mptsas driver problem, or an hba firmware problem?

    This is on a fedora 10 platform, kernel 2.6.27.7-134.fc10.
    The LSISAS3041E-R (1064E chipset) firmware version is 01.26.0.0

    Thanks.

      Note: this is with fedora 10 version of hdparm v8.6.
