I use the Linux aaccli in Linux compat mode.

Are Adaptec saying that they also don't support Linux?   I am not  
running any FreeBSD native aaccli as it was recommended to me long  
ago to run the Linux one as it had more capability than the FreeBSD  
one, which was abandoned it seems.

Btw, I updated my 2200S to the latest in May but the latest for this  
card is from 2005 so maybe it is not late enough.
