Man, finding the command-line interface (CLI) management tool for the Dell PERC 5/i controller is a maze of twisty little passages… Because Dell doesn't actually have the download for it, despite grabbing nearly a GB worth of stuff that sounded close. So, to seed the google…

The Dell PERC 5/i controller is actually an LSI Logic based controller, and you need to go to the LSI Logic site and grab the “MegaCLI” program from their support section for the “MegaRAID SAS 8408E” card. This one seems to work with that controller.

The magic really seems to be going to the LSI site and searching for the 8408E model MegaRAID card.
