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.

HISTORY
     The rr232x	driver first appeared in FreeBSD 6.1.
