I don't see anything wrong with your configuration
the only thing that comes to mind is maybe some incompatibility with xhci/usb3 (?)
Perhaps my point is not valid but is there an option to disable xhci in BIOS and try again?

first thing i would do is upgrade system, 9.2.0.1 is really too old

newer nut version also fixed a few problems
System specs: XigmaNAS 11.2.0.4 -embedded on Samsung 860 EVO 256GB and Supermicro X10SL7-F w / Bios v3.2, IPMI v.03.77 / CPU E3-1241 v3 @ 3.50GHz - 32GB Crucial DDR3L 1600mhz ECC 1.35v , LSI 2308 on PH20.00.07.00 IT mode, Storage: 5x Western Digital Red (WD30EFRX) raidz

Development system is same system in virtualbox.
