rr232x(4)              FreeBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual              rr232x(4)

NAME
     rr232x -- HighPoint RocketRAID 232x device driver

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

           device rr232x
           device scbus
           device da

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

           rr232x_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION
     The rr232x driver provides support for HighPoint's RocketRAID 232x series
     of RAID controllers.  These devices support SATA disk drives and provide
     RAID 0, 1, and 5 functionality.  Hardware acceleration for RAID 5 is also
     provided.  Additionally, if multiple controllers are present, arrays may
     be built out of drives that are attached to different controllers.
     Online management is provided by utilities that are available for free
     download from http://www.highpoint-tech.com/.

HARDWARE
     The rr232x driver supports the following hardware:

     +o   HighPoint RocketRAID 2320
     +o   HighPoint RocketRAID 2322

NOTES
     The rr232x driver only works on the i386 and amd64 platforms.  Also,
     while the driver can be loaded as a module, it must be loaded prior to
     boot.  Loading it after boot will result in the hardware not being
     detected.

SEE ALSO
     cam(4), loader.conf(5), loader(8)

     The rr232x driver first appeared in FreeBSD 6.1.
