The problem with HP, as I see it, is that they "officially" do not support
freebsd.. I even sent an email to ask.. and the categorically stated that it
is not supported.
I would not want to standarize on something which is not guaranted will work
in the future with FreeBSD.
the problem is that none of the Tier 1 hardware manufacturer's support
FreeBSD, and a growing number of places (ie. Adaptec / Intel) appear to be
dropping support for it as well ...
Intel as an example, you can get storcon to manage the RAID controllers
for both FreeBSD 4.x and 5.x, but they've not done similar for 6.x, which
means I'm now "blind" on my RAIDs ...
With HP, at least, the ciss driver is smart enough to provide me with
health info on my RAID controller, and I have the ability to manage
everything remotely through iLO ...
