Hi all,

I have problem with managing SAS RAID with linux-megacli
FreeBSD 7.0-CURRENT on i386
Megacli form ports
linux-megacli-1.01.09 LSI MegaRAID SAS controller management utility

Machine is Fujitsu Siemens TX200 S3 with
LSI Megaraid SAS 8300xlp (I have 5 SATA hd) - this controller work only
under 7.0 CURRENT.

I made raid 5 (via FSC ServerView) and now I try manage array.

If i check logical drive or physical drive (ld/pdinfo)
# megacli -PdInfo -physdrv \[1:1\] -aAll

As you can see everything is show OK.
But if i try turn any physycal drive to Offline mode or locate drive
system hang and on console I have a lots of messages:

mfi0: command 0xc64595f4 secound 54 timeout

Any idea what is going on?
