Hi All,

I would like to upgrade the firmware on my Areca ARC-1210 SATA RAID

advice

on doing it?

I have downloaded a program called archttp32 that appears to be a
FreeBSD 4.2 32-bit version of the Arec http proxy server but I really
need a 64-bit version (I suppose that would be called archttp64),
preferably build on FreeBSD 6.1 (or thereabouts).

Any tips, pointers, advice, or warnings would be greatly appreciated.


I've done it but under Solaris 10.  I basically followed the  
instructions that Areca has in the docs/website.  My card was an 1120  
8 port card (I also did an 1130 12 port card through its in-built  
ethernet port).


I went just now to their downloads and they only show the 32 bit  
archttp server.  Try that and see how it works since your amd should  
also run 32 bit programs, right?.  Otherwise, maybe you will have to  
boot a liveCD in 32bit mode or something and run it from that

Thanks,
Bob

I have done a few through the web interface on FreeBSD and they worked
as expected.

both

arcmsr0: ARECA ARC1110 PCI-X 4 PORTS SATA RAID CONTROLLER 
and
arcmsr0: ARECA ARC1210 PCI-EXPRESS 4 PORTS SATA RAID CONTROLLER 

seemed to work fine

IIRC the new driver (1.20.00.12) supports automatic firmware upgrades.
I have some patches floating around in the freebsd PR database that
will sync the default driver (version 1.20.00.02) in FreeBSD 6.x to
the latest areca sources, which is 1.20.00.12. I never tested this
feature... It may blow your card up :-)

They work on FreeBSD 6.x/i386 with COMPAT_FREEBSD4
