Perhaps with the linux aaccli? I doubt that adaptec is releasing a new aaccli for freebsd soon.
Yes, this is a problem for all modern adaptec RAID bios. I've been trying to get Scott Long to work on a monitoring solution for these newer cards and he expressed interest, but the project seems to have fallen off of his short list... Perhaps I shall ping him again.
