Re: Need advice on SCSI raid controller

We have running several PE2650 with PERC 3/4 (adaptec / lsi IIRC)
with Debian woody and sarge without any problems.
You have to build a kernel which support megaraid or aacraid depending
on the vendor of the controller.

mwilhelm@gauss[/boot]$ grep "AAC\|MEGA" config-2.4.30-server 

I don't know if there are any problems with the newest PERCs in 2850 or
machines alike, but I would guess that this is no problem.
(If it is we'll experience this soon :-/)
