Dear All List Members,

I have just built a Dually box for use with CPanel (used as a web hosting
server), however as the motherboard does not sport onboard RAID, I purchased
an Adaptec 1210SA SATA RAID controller, and 2x SATA 80GB disks (for use in
RAID 1). The chipset on the card is a Silicon Image, and I am 90% sure its
the S3112 chipset (there is a sticker over the chipset I dont want to
remove, but the pics of the card on the net show the S3112 chipset). I have
downloaded and I am going to install FreeBSD v5.2.1, does anyone know if
this controller/chipset is compatible with FreeBSD ? I have looked on the
hardware compatibility listing and there are many SATA chipset's, including
other Silicon Image chipset's, but unfortunately not the model I have.

I would be quite surprised if this chipset is not supported, as its probably
the most common SATA RAID controller built into motherboard's nowaday's .

Also, the card comes with a web management application, which says its
compatbile only with Windows and RedHat Linux, if the chipset is supported
by FreeBSD, would it be possible to port over this application for use on
BSD ?

--

If the chipset is not compatible, would this cause an issue ? (e.g. write
errors, corrupt data, partition problems etc) ?

Thanx !!!

Kind Regards,

Richard Parry
