 raidutil and FreeBSD/i386 6.1-RELEASE
Author: fab23

We have an Adaptec 3210S (ADAP3210S) running with FreeBSD/i386 6.1-RELEASE with a similar error from raidutil:

root@schabell:~# raidutil -L all

Engine connect failed: COMPATILITY number
osdIOrequest : File /dev/rdptr17 Could Not Be Opened

After searching and trying around for a few hours (including creating links in /dev), we saw the comment about ASR_COMPAT kernel option in the webcvs source archive for asr.c [1] (Revision 1.64.2.1).

So we just added the "options ASR_COMPAT" to our kernel config, rebuilded and installed the kernel and did the reboot. Then the raidutil from the sysutils/asr-utils Ports just works, without playing around with the shared memory stuff.
