I've got four identical HP/Compaq DL360 G3 1u servers.  Each has the 
latest available firmware:

Proliant P31 (03/03/2005) BIOS
HP SmartArray 5i RAID onboard controller (v2.62)
(2) HPNC7781 (Broadcom BCM5703) (ASIC rev. 0x1002) 10/100/1000 onboard 
network card
iLO v1.80 (Jul/12/2005)

four sticks of 512MB ECC RAM
two 36GB SCA disks in RAID1 via SmartArray 5i

while running FreeBSD 6.0-RELEASE through the PreReleases and now with 

In an effort to make FreeBSD stable with DL360's, I'm wondering if 
there's a driver/kernel developer interested in having full remote 
access to this machine for a week or two (or three) via iLO and root/ssh.

Anyone qualified and interested, please let me know.
