 Dell Poweredge Raid Controllers (PERC 3/si)
Author: TJ 
Date:   12-02-01 15:44

Anyone ever had experience loading FreeBSD on to a 2450 Poweredge server from dell? It won't recognise the disks on the PERC3/si raid controller...

any help much appreciated, links, books, pictures, small furry animals, ANYTHING that might get this to see the disks...

Thanks,
TJ

The last I knew, only the PERC2 controllers work. I will admit that my info is a minimum of 6 mos old, so the PERC3 may now be compatible.
Using the PERC2, i had some major issues trying to get 4.0 installed. I would see errors such as "I/O controller wedged" and the system would lock up.
I did finally get FreeBSD installed, though it took a snapshot of 4.02 (?) to do it... not good for a production box...but it worked fine so all wa well...
depending on the use of the box, you may want to try the latest snapshot or even try the CURRENT tree...
