Subject:   FreeBSD 8.3 support for LSI SAS 2208 based controllers/Dell PERC 710
Message-ID:  <>

Hi All,

I have a Dell R620 which utilizes the PERC H710 controller based on
the LSI SAS 2208 chip.  According to the hardware notes for
8.3-RELEASE, this chip is supported by the mps driver.  Unfortunately,
when I attempt to install 8.3-RELEASE via DVD, it does not recognize
the controller and no disks are found and the install exits.

The manpage indicates the driver was introduced in 9.0-RELEASE
suggesting it was backported to 8.3?  Would this be correct?  A search
for related bug reports did not return anything useful.

Would anyone else out there have any experience with installing
FreeBSD on the R620 and be able to provide any tips for

Take care
Rick Miller
