ICP Vortex is an Adaptec company and Adaptec doesn't support FreeBSD. We've already been over this once.
Not to disagree with you, but Adaptec put new drivers for 5.3 and 5.4 for their 2420, 2820, 2320SLP, 2130SLP, and 4800/4805SAS driver back in April 06 up on their website.
Their support could be a lot better, but these are new cards and new FreeBSD drivers... There is no storage manager aaccli like there was earlier :-( (maybe a Linux one, assuming there is one, will work like the Linux aaccli program works on FreeBSD?)
So there is a very low level of support from Adaptec... They should really give their drivers to the project as part of the source and support them as well... That is why I am using Areca now. They seem to support both FreeBSD and Solaris 10 much better than Adaptec.
I haven't bought an Adaptec card in 2 years though because their stuff gave me a lot of problems and didn't perform that well...
