I've managed to install FreeBSD 5 on a RAID-10 after my weird problem of
random letters/numbers scrolling on the screen upon a CD boot (actually
installed 4.10 from CD, cvsupped to 5.4, it worked - seems to be
something related to the CD boot loader..).
Wanting to have something to manage the raid with, a simple make search
key=adaptec showed asr-utils and aaccli. I've had no luck with either one.
I don't have the server online now (have it at home before shipping it,
only have one set of cables, a pain to switch them due to cable
With raidutil (from asr-utils), a raidutil -L all says something about
COMPATIBITY NUMBER and then something about /dev/rdpti17. I've tried to
symlink /dev/asr0 to /dev/rdpti17, but the symlink is gone when I run
raidutil again. I googled a bit and there were suggestions about
/dev/rasr0 -> /dev/rdpti17, but I have no rasr0 device - only asr0.
There was also some links about increasing SYSV memory, which I did, no
I tried aaccli after having no luck with raidutil, and a aaccli open
asr0 says the controller is invalid or non-existant.
camcontrol devlist shows the RAID-10, and I'm pretty sure the RAID is
working - I've installed FreeBSD on it lol :-)
All that I'm missing now is a tool to be able to manage the raid.. any
