I recently got a dell poweredge 2450 server, and am having an amusing time
trying to get any distros to recognize the raid controller and how to play
Dell poweredge 2450
1 gb ram
4 9g ultra3 scsi drives, will be using raid5
poweredge raid 3/si controller
adaptec aic-7899 scsi controller
Tried FreeBSD 4.0.. it found the controller, but couldnt figure out quite
what to do with it. Will try 5.0 later, in case a newer driver is avail.
Have tried using somewhat older distros of slackware/suse/debian that I had
lying around, and will try the most recent ones as soon as they finish
Has anyone setup one of these servers with linux/*bsd?
