Thanks for your response. Yes, unfortunately, the DAG software for the DAG card we wish to use on this machine supports 5.4, but has not been thoroughly tested for more recent versions of FreeBSD. We could use Linux, but I prefer FreeBSD.

I am exploring switching the PERC 5i with a PERC 4 controller on this machine (it's a Dell Poweredge 2900). The PERC 4 is supported in 5.4

I am trying to install an Endace DAG card for traffic capture on a new machine with 8 drives installed using a PERC 5i controller. Due to support limitations for the DAG software, I have to install FreeBSD 5.4 on this machine.

However, the install CD does not see any drives at all - my guess is FreeBSD 5.4 has no drivers for the PERC 5i controller. Does anyone know a workaround for this? Is there a PERC 5i driver available for FreeBSD 5.4? TIA for your responses.

I am guessing you are right.  5.4 is pretty old.
Is there any good reason you don't go to a more
modern version of FreeBSD?
