Hey guys, I've got a bunch of these:
http://www.supermicro.com/PRODUCT/SUPERServer/SuperServer6011D.htm

I currently am trying to get 2 of them working, I've tested them all =
though.

I have put 4.7 4.8 5.0 and upgraded and im still having issues.

this server is currently have major problems. First I was coming up =
with.

These were some of the errors I grabbed.

I especially got these lately. Not the top one.

these are just snippets by the way.

I am not sure what to do. I have looked at the supermicro page and found
this.

http://www.supermicro.com/TECHSUPPORT/FAQs/SCSI_FAQ.htm

Questions: New system BIOS with  SCSI BIOS 3.10S2 causing LINUX =
installation
hang at the blue screen  with aic7xx....or SCSI multifunction=20
=20

Answer : Download this SEEPROM from here and follow the steps to reload =
SCSI
EEPROM to default if using older SCSI bios and upgrade to SCSI BIOS =
3.10S2

After having the guy at the datacenter put it on, it was no use.  =
Reboots
usually take about 10-20 minutes, usually goes to FSCK, not sure how it
breaks.

He tells me they hang at:

da0 at ahc0 bus 0 target 0 lun0
da0: <Seagate ST336607lc 0004> Fixed direct access SCSI -3 device
da0: 160MB/s tranfers (80mhz, offset 63, 16 bit), tagging queueing =
enabled
da0: 35993 mb 971687372 512 byte sectors: 255h 63s/t 4462c)

anybody have a workaround? Fix for this issue? If a developer would like =
to
get access to the box, I may be fine with that if they could create a =
patch
for the freebsd community, please notify me. Thanks.
