need AMI MegaRAID help

Has anyone successfully used an AMI MegaRAID controller card with Linux?

Are there drivers to support it?

When you added an additional hard drive to the (raid 5) array, did you
have to
backup and restore your data? Or, did the MegaRAID's bios expansion
have a way of handling this with out restoring, as it does with NT and
Did ext2 recognize the new, larger size of the hard drive?  (I am told
that ext2 lays
down a track that describes the size of the hard drive, causing a
amount of confusion when the size of the hard drive suddenly jumps up by

a few gigabytes.)

If anyone has done this before, or has some comments on the process, I
would greatly
appreciate your feedback!

Many thanks,


1. Help needed monitoring logical drives (AMI Megaraid)

Hi, I was wondering if anyone knows a method of automatically checking
the status of logical drives when useing the AMI Megaraid raid system?
I've downloaded a beta megamgr program from the AMI web site, but this
is an interactive program not really suitable for automatic checks. So,
anyone got any ideas? Thanks for your help
