Your work-around works on 7-stable as of this morning.
I have quite a few 2200S equipped systems that I am transitioning from 6.X
to 7-stable and aaccli is necessary to be able to insert/remove drives and
initialize them into storage arrays.
sysutils/arcconf says it needs aacraid-drivers from Adaptec's website to
be fully functional; I don't see any FreeBSD drivers at Adaptec for the
2200S (perhaps they are available for a newer product but will work for
this older adapter?)
If aaccli is the only way to control the 2200S, is there some hope that a
fix of some sort could ultimately be committed?
Thanks for your effort.
