Install the new storcli to manage (LSI/AVAGO/Broadcom) MegaRAID controller under CentOS 7

After the acquisition of LSI there was a major change with the management console utility for the MegaRAID controllers. The utility was renamed from MegaCli (MegaCli64, megacli) to

storcli (storcli64)

We have new controllers like AVAGO MegaRAID SAS-9361-4i and really old ones like LSI 2108 MegaRAID (in fact Supermicro AOC-USAS2LP-H8iR) and the two controllers could be manage with the new cli. even the old controller, which is on more than 8 years could be manage by the new cli.
Interesting fact is that the storcli output and argument syntax and is almost identical to the one really old cli – tw_cli – the 3Ware management utility. As you know LSI bought 3ware RAID adapter business in 2009.
