HP DL360 G3 Hangs on Disk Removal

I feel your pain.  I so much want to use FreeBSD.  We've used Red Hat
Linux for years, but I have 20 odd servers that are running 7.2 which is
no longer supported by Red Hat.  The cheapest I could get support for
would be $150/server if I install Enterprise Desktop.

I was going to go with Debian, but I'm having a devil of a time with the
Broadcomm ethernet versus Woody, the "stable" Debian release.  I'm in the
midst of building a custom kernel to see if I can get it up and running.

I really like the FreeBSD model, having used SunOS for years.  But having
the RAID controller unreliable makes this a non-starter.

It is especially frustrating to see how well the PERC raid driver works.
It behaves exactly the way you would expect.

Hope you have better luck in the future.
