FreeBSD handles plenty of "software" (metadata only) RAIDs, though I believe that an archive search will turn up that the sil3112 is possibly the worst such RAID ever and was a poor choice of RAID card, however cheap. Try google. SiL are listed among the controllers supported by ataraid on 6.1 so I would expect the RAID to be recognised even if it performed badly.
Of course you are right in all the points!:( I know it now, at the moment of buy I didn't know what chip is used in the Tekram TR-822.. I was very surprised when I see chip name... I don'e think that is the solution worst, but problem is different metadata formats in different BIOSes... Initially I asked who uses sil3112 and hasn't pronlems:) Today I will try to update flash bios to some older version, but it's designed for linux... I hope FreeBSD driver recongnise it's metadata format... I've not used such a RAID so perhaps some specific action with
atacontrol is required.
I see at least two problems: 1. If I create raid1 or raid0 using atacontrol create bla-bla-bla then I see new device -- ar0. After paririoning&labeling I try to newfs it... FreeBSD hungs in same moment without any warnings... 2. If I create raid1 or raid0 using bios utility of sil3112 then FreeBSD driver doesn'y recognise this metadata. It's just see disk drives and nothing more....:( -- Best wishes, Coredumped. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
