SATA Controllers

2012-10-09 Thread Doug Hardie
Looking through the list of SATA Controllers available at Best Buy, I don't 
find any of them listed on the 9.0 hardware page.  I need a couple cheap ones 
(for non-production systems).  Does anyone have recommendations?

 SATA controller and continue using geom_raid3?  This particular card
 uses a Marvell controller, so I would guess that it would be detected by
 FreeBSD without issue.  If someone could confirm this, it would be much
 appreciated.

See the stable many-port SATA controller thread. So far it's looking
good for me, but it has not been that long yet.

In regard to SATA controllers.

2007-05-16 Thread John Wilson


Hello, folks.

I am currently running 6.2-stable on an Intel D965OT mainboard.  I've 4 
320gb drives, the first being the boot and system drive, the other 3 are 
running in a raid 3 setup via geom_raid3.  All is running well enough.


However, I would like to expand my capacity, but this will then saturate 
the available SATA ports on the mainboard, which means I now have to look 
for a new controller.


On the high end of things (at least for me and my intended application), 
I've been looking at the HighPoint 2320 PCI Express card.  True hardware 
RAID and native support via. the rr232x driver seems like a nice match. 
However, in the event of a controller failure, I'm pretty much screwed 
unless I have a spare controller on hand.  Not to mention that if this 
controller is not made any longer at the time of failure, well, I don't 
really know what my options would be at that point.  Perhaps this is the 
bane of RAID controllers in general.  Then again, my experience level in 
this sort of application is about nil.


On the flip side, since I've had good luck using the geom architecture for 
RAID 3, my other option would be a regular controller and keeping with the 
software RAID setup.  At least in this instance, if the controller goes 
south, I can just swap it out with another, and continue on without much 
hassle.  However, in this instance, I would need a few suggestions as to 
which controller would be best.


I've been looking at a few of the lower end HighPoint software RAID 
controllers as well, such as the HighPoint 2310.  I'm uncertain if there 
is native support for this controller.  I do understand that HighPoint 
does indeed have drivers available for FreeBSD, but if they are binary 
modules, I'd almost want to stay away from it.  I'd much prefer either 
native drivers or manufacturer drivers in source form.  However, failing 
the above cases, would it be possible to just run this card as a simple 
SATA controller and continue using geom_raid3?  This particular card uses 
a Marvell controller, so I would guess that it would be detected by 
FreeBSD without issue.  If someone could confirm this, it would be much 
appreciated.


The function of the machine is simple.  It's a home NAS for 3 other 
machines, but also does other light duties as well, so ultimate 
performance isn't really that much of an issue.  As things are now, 
utilizing geom_raid3, the performance is rather good.


Thanks for your time,
John Wilson.

 Somewhere along the lines AHCI support for the 5287 was added, that is
 probably the problem. It might be nessesary to enable AHCI in the BIOS
 if possible.
 Otherwise a way to tell when this is actually working on the HW is
 needed as its clearly not enough that the BIOS says the resources are
 there

  Everything looks spiffy after my upgrade except all my sata disks are
  gone.  Thank goodness the os in on a pata controller:
 
  atapci1: AcerLabs M5287 SATA150 controller port
  0xec00-0xec0f,0xe880-0xe887,0xe800-0xe80f,0xe480-0xe487,0xe400-0xe41f
  mem 0xd800-0xdbff irq 21 at device 31.1 on pci0
  atapci1: AHCI controller reset failure
  device_attach: atapci1 attach returned 6
 
  So, I booted the 6.2 iso to find identical behavior, so it is not my
  mistake in the upgrade process (unless the mistake was to upgrade at
  all).
 
  Thanks,
  Steve
 
 



Soren,

I don't see any AHCI settings anywhere in my bios or in my sata raid
controller page.  It is the latest bios.  Is there a way to force the
driver to a standard ata device instead of ahci?

Most SATA controllers/chipsets I've encountered are supported. I've had good 
luck with VIA and SiS controllers. Promise is definitely good if they have 
anything in your price range. Just don't buy anything from Silicon Image if 
you value your data. 

The ata(4) manpage has a more complete list of supported controllers than the

3ware SATA controllers working with 4.10?

2004-08-02 Thread Bill Moran

There are a few SATA controllers listed as supported in 4.10, but I'm not
seeing anything from 3ware.  If you saw a recent post, you know that I've
inheritied some hardware, and I'm just trying to make sure that FreeBSD
is going to run prior to blowing away the Linux install.

Anyone running any 3ware SATA RAID controllers on 4.10?  Do they work?
I'm having a hell of a time finding out what model # these are!  But I
know they're 64-bit PCI plugged into a 32-bit PCI mobo. ;)

There are a few SATA controllers listed as supported in 4.10, but I'm 
not
seeing anything from 3ware.  If you saw a recent post, you know that 
I've
inheritied some hardware, and I'm just trying to make sure that FreeBSD
is going to run prior to blowing away the Linux install.
The simple thing to do is boot a FreeBSD install CD and check what it 
sees. Likely to tell you more than you currently know about what the 
hardware really is.

If sysinstall sees your SATA drives and is willing to install on them 
then its likely you are in business. Then the issue would be managing 
the RAID hardware.
