There is no such thing, AFAIK. The volunteers who form the FreeBSD project spend their time improving FreeBSD, not doing formal certification tests. That should be the job of the vendor. The hardware vendors list that you can find on the site [http://www.freebsd.org/commercial/hardware.html] is driven by submissions from the vendors. > We would like to know if FreeBSD is supported on HP Blades and which > models, network cards, HBA cards for connecting to SAN's. First, ask the vendors of the hardware in question. If they are unwilling or unable to give an answer, would you want to buy their stuff? If you want information on particular models of hardware, search through the archives of the freebsd-questions list. If problems exist with particular models, that is where it will probably turn up first. If you have specific questions, you can ask on the list. Or use zgrep to search the manual pages in drivers category (/usr/share/man/man4). If you want a particular piece of hardware supported, you could hire a developer to do that for you. Maybe ask on the hackers@ list.
