I have a PowerEdge 2400 with a PERC2/Si in it. I do not know how close
that is to the SC, however mine is running FreeBSD 6.1 and recognises
the card thus:
Oct 14 18:04:23 khaki kernel: amr0: <LSILogic MegaRAID 1.53> mem
0xf4000000-0xf43fffff irq 24 at device 10.1 on pci2
Oct 14 18:04:23 khaki kernel: amr0: <Series 466> Firmware 3.01, BIOS
1.36, 16MB RAM
And then quite happily detects the RAIDs:
Oct 14 18:04:23 khaki kernel: amrd0: <LSILogic MegaRAID logical drive>
Oct 14 18:04:23 khaki kernel: amrd0: 8568MB (17547264 sectors) RAID 1
Oct 14 18:04:23 khaki kernel: amrd1: <LSILogic MegaRAID logical drive>
Oct 14 18:04:23 khaki kernel: amrd1: 104034MB (213061632 sectors) RAID 5
