HPTRR(4)	       FreeBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual		      HPTRR(4)

NAME
     hptrr -- HighPoint	RocketRAID device driver

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

	   device hptrr
	   device scbus
	   device da

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

	   hptrr_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION
     The hptrr driver provides support for HighPoint's RocketRAID based	RAID
     controllers.

     These devices support SATA/ATA disk drives	and provide RAID0 (striping),
     RAID1 (mirroring),	and RAID5 functionality.

HARDWARE
     The hptrr driver supports the following RAID controllers:

     +o	 RocketRAID 172x series
     +o	 RocketRAID 174x series
     +o	 RocketRAID 2210
     +o	 RocketRAID 222x series
     +o	 RocketRAID 2240
     +o	 RocketRAID 230x series
     +o	 RocketRAID 231x series
     +o	 RocketRAID 232x series
     +o	 RocketRAID 2340
     +o	 RocketRAID 2522

NOTES
     The hptrr driver only works on the	i386 and amd64 platforms as it
     requires a	binary blob object from	the manufacturer which they only sup-
     ply for these platforms.  The hptrr driver	does not work on i386 with
     pae(4) enabled.

     This driver does not support the RR182x series controller.	 See the
     hptmv(4) manual page for details on support.

     This driver supersedes the	older rr232x driver.

SEE ALSO
     cam(4), hptmv(4), loader(8)

HISTORY
     The hptrr device driver first appeared in FreeBSD 6.3.

AUTHORS
     The hptrr device driver was written by HighPoint Technologies, Inc., and
     ported to FreeBSD by Scott	Long.  This manual page	was written by David
     E.	O'Brien.

BUGS
     The hptrr driver does not support manipulating the	RAID from the OS,
     RAIDs need	to be set up from the on-board BIOS.
