I've 2130SLP and the drivers Adaptec posted caused server reboots almost 
immediately, the documentation were lacking (device name has changed which 
would cause a failed boot) and as you said aaccli is not working, not even the 
new linux ASM.

On that point, do you still have the linux aaccli file ? I've been looking for 
it with no luck. Just updated the 2130SLP firmware and its no longer accepting 
the aaccli utility.

Advise.....stay away from Adaptec on FreeBSD and especially RAID controllers.
