This is on a h200 card from dell using LSI 2008 on FreeBSD 8.2-RC3 amd64.
Now, the documentation is FAR from finished but you may see a draft here:
What you want to do is :
- delete your logical volume on the RAID controller
- boot an MFSBSD image preloaded with a kernel containing the mps(4)
module from 9.0.
- this will present you the disks as /dev/da0 and /dev/da1
- setup a software mirror from there
If you like, you may mail me the network configuration you'd like to get
to be able to reach the host (MAC address of the NIC, IP address, mask,
gateway, nameserver) and your public ssh key, and I'll generate you a
MFSBSD 8.2-RC3 image preloaded with mps(4).
You then boot it via PXE or inject it (install linux, download image,
inject using dd).
