AACRAID(4)	       FreeBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual		    AACRAID(4)

NAME
     aacraid --	Adaptec	AACRAID	Controller driver

SYNOPSIS
     To	compile	this driver into the kernel, place the following lines in your
     kernel configuration file:

	   device pci
	   device aacraid

	   To compile in debugging code:
	   options AACRAID_DEBUG=N

     Alternatively, to load the	driver as a module at boot time, place the
     following line in loader.conf(5):

	   aacraid_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION
     The aacraid driver	provides support for the Adaptec by PMC	RAID con-
     trollers, including Series	6/7/8 and upcoming families.

     The RAID containers are handled via the aacraidp0 bus.  The physical
     buses are represented by the aacraidp? devices (beginning with
     aacraidp1). These devices enable the SCSI pass-thru interface and allows
     devices connected to the card such	as CD-ROMs to be available via the CAM
     scsi(4) subsystem.	 Note that not all cards allow this interface to be
     enabled.

     The /dev/aacraid? device nodes provide access to the management interface
     of	the controller.	 One node exists per installed card.  If the kernel is
     compiled with the COMPAT_LINUX option, or the aacraid_linux.ko and
     linux.ko modules are loaded, the Linux-compatible ioctl(2)	interface for
     the management device will	be enabled and will allow Linux-based manage-
     ment applications to control the card.

HARDWARE
     Controllers supported by the aacraid driver include:

     +o	 Adaptec ASR-6405(T|E)
     +o	 Adaptec ASR-6445
     +o	 Adaptec ASR-6805(T|E|Q|TQ)
     +o	 Adaptec ASR-7085
     +o	 Adaptec ASR-7805(Q)
     +o	 Adaptec ASR-70165
     +o	 Adaptec ASR-71605(E|Q)
     +o	 Adaptec ASR-71685
     +o	 Adaptec ASR-72405
     +o	 Adaptec Series	8 cards

FILES
     /dev/aacraid?	      aacraid management interface

DIAGNOSTICS
     Compiling with AACRAID_DEBUG set to a number between 0 and	3 will enable
     increasingly verbose debug	messages.

     The adapter can send status and alert messages asynchronously to the
     driver.  These messages are printed on the	system console,	and are	also
     queued for	retrieval by a management application.
