pciconf -lv show the following for the atapci device (again there is 
AHCI mentioned in the output):

device = '82801GB I/O Controller Hub SATA cc=AHCI'

Same output here, but changing the BIOS settings did not help.
The only way I found to get it working was to build the mirror through 
atacontrol.


 bye  Thanks

 I have two SATA disks configured for mirroring in the BIOS; I see the 
 two disks separately as ad devices, but no RAID device: I'd expect an 
 ar0 or something.

I think that if it is hardware RAID, you should see only one disk.

If it is not supported, you will not have access to the RAID error
diagnostics in FreeBSD, but it should still appear as one single disk.

Bests,

Hi,

 I think that if it is hardware RAID, you should see only one disk.

My Promise controller does have my disks show up as ar0 -- but the disks are 
there as individuals (ad*) as well, and accessible (though I only use ar0*, for 
hopefully obvious reasons).

At least, that's what I saw last time I looked (running 7-STABLE around 
~7.1-RELEASE). I can check tonight if you want (and I get home on time ;-)).

Regards,

Peter.

Is this card not supported?


I've two of these here, both running 7.0 one as i386 and one as amd64.
The amd64 box uses the onboard RAID.

Here are the relevant dmesg parts:

If i remeber correctly, you have to enable the RAID option in the BIOS to 
configure the two disk as array, afterwards you must enter the BIOS again 
and switch to AHCI. As the ataraid driver detects the array by reading the 
metadata on the disks it should detect the array. I'm not 100 percent sure

The second box (running i386) is using geom_mirror and running fine.

I would definitely vote for the geom_mirror way!

kind regards
Joerg
