NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     asr -- driver for Adaptec I2O based SCSI/ATA host bus adapters

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     device asr

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The Adaptec asr driver provides access to disks and disk arrays controlled
 by I2O based host bus adapters and SmartRAID SCSI RAID adapters
     through the standard SCSI disk da(4) interface.  The adapters currently
     supported include the following RAID adapters:

     Adaptec Zero-Channel SCSI RAID 2000S & 2005S
     Adaptec SCSI RAID 2100S (2110S)
     Adaptec ATA-100 RAID 2400A
     Adaptec SCSI RAID 3200S (3210S)
     Adaptec SCSI RAID 3400S (3410S)
     Adaptec SmartRAID PM1554
     Adaptec SmartRAID PM2554
     Adaptec SmartRAID PM2564
     Adaptec SmartRAID PM2664
     Adaptec SmartRAID PM2754
     Adaptec SmartRAID PM2865
     Adaptec SmartRAID PM3754
     Adaptec SmartRAID PM3755U2B / SmartRAID V Millennium
     Adaptec SmartRAID PM3757
     DEC KZPCC-AC (LVD 1-ch, 4MB or 16MB cache), DEC KZPCC-CE (LVD 3-ch, 64MB
     cache), DEC KZPCC-XC (LVD 1-ch, 16MB cache), DEC KZPCC-XE (LVD 3-ch, 64MB
     cache) -- rebadged SmartRAID V Millennium

     Some of the adapters provide 64 bit PCI, Compact PCI, ACPI and up to four
     channels of Ultra 160 SCSI, or two channels of 1GB Fibre.	All support
     RAID-0, RAID-1, RAID-10, RAID-5 and RAID-50 arrays.  All SCSI target
     types are supported.  For the ATA based controllers, one IDE drive per
     channel is supported.  Hot-swapping of IDE drives is not supported at
     this time.

     The PCI adapters automatically configure using the configuration mechanism
 of the bus they are on.  With PCI adapters the IRQ sometimes has to
     be assigned from a BIOS configuration menu (some BIOS's do this automatically).

     All host bus adapters must be configured before they can be used with any
     operating system.	Please contact Adaptec directly to obtain the latest
     information on configuration utilities for the adapters.  Currently there
     are both a GUI Motif based configuration utility and a CLI based configuration
 utility available from the Adaptec Web site.  Note that in the
     absence of a native FreeBSD version of the configuration utilities does
     not mean one cannot configure the devices via the BIOS based configuration
 tool Storage Manager on ROM (SMOR).

NOTES    [Toc]    [Back]

     The ATA based controllers present their devices as SCSI-like devices via
     CAM.  For IDE drives attached to these cards, a subset of standard SCSI
     commands and mode pages are understood via translation performed in the
     card's firmware.

HISTORY    [Toc]    [Back]

     The asr (Adaptec SCSI RAID) driver first appeared as the dpti2o driver
     under BSDi BSD/OS 3.2, then under FreeBSD 2.2.8 and was ported over to
     the CAM layer represented in 4.0.
