Hello,
Just a small post to report some success with a cheap 4-port SATA card on the Rockpro64
Big Grin
https://www.amazon.ca/Ziyituod-Controlle...5WRVNV0WZ8

It works with Ayufans 0.9.14 minimal, and with StretchOMV (Stretch) - with armhf variants.
All ports work. For testing I have a 4Tb Seagate, and 2 x 3Tb Seagate in RAID5. There is also a 2Tb drive not in the array.
(Card mode switch is set to AHCI boot)
For individual disks, under Debian using hdparm -Tt /dev/sdX, I was getting >100mb/s.

I will update when the array has finished syncing.

hdparm -Tt /dev/md0 
/dev/md0:
 Timing cached reads:   2026 MB in  2.00 seconds = 1013.04 MB/sec
 Timing buffered disk reads: 830 MB in  3.01 seconds = 275.87 MB/sec

Not bad for a little SBC.

Tongue
Thanks,
Andy

I've made a rockpro64 device compatibility page.
Please update it with your successes/failures.

If yours has a ASM1062 chipset, then I guess I have basically the same card (I already had added it to the Wiki). At least from the outside it looks the same.

Nice to hear that yours works with several disks attached, feel free to add this to the wiki.

Indeed it is.

00:00.0 PCI bridge: Device 1d87:0100
01:00.0 SATA controller: ASMedia Technology Inc. ASM1062 Serial ATA Controller (rev 02)

root@shyguy:~# uname -r
4.4.190-1233-rockchip-ayufan-gd3f1be0ed310

Model number is SU-SA3004.V2
Only pci-e X1, but seems to be working just fine.

Thanks,
Andy

Cool. I see there is a 6-port version as well, wonder if it's workable (the card looks like it would fit to me, but maybe I'm wrong)

Are these 2.5" disks? 3.5"? spinning or SSD? all running off the stock power supply?

I could see setting one of these up myself. I've been wanting to set up a NAS machine and would love to do it with a PINE64 device. Preferably with some manner of RAID, mdadm would be fine at home.

it doesn't get happy
it doesn't get sad
it just runs programs

Hi, i use an PCIe SATA-card with JMicron JMS585- Chip. It has 5 ports. I am using this as an NAS.

2 * 2,5 Zoll as RAID1
2 * 3,5 Zoll as RAID1
Port 5 2,5 Zoll SSD with sys

u-boot in SPI and it boots from port 5

Code:
root@NASrp64:~# uname -a
Linux NASrp64 5.6.0-1137-ayufan-ge57f05e7bf8f #ayufan SMP Wed Apr 15 10:16:02 UTC 2020 aarch64 GNU/Linux
Sorry for any mistakes. English is not my native language
