It covers PCI-X, PCIe right? I assume that it does by information on it's man page. What I'm getting at is that my web host and I worked up a new dedicated server with a specific hardware RAID controller. I finally get access to it, start setting up sites and whatnot... but I notice that linux raid is running in the processes. What?! So I do an lspci - the controller isn't listed. What is listed is the integrated ICH8 controller. Grrrrr... My /proc/scsi/scsi lists two drives, both are Type: Direct-Access. I've always known drives in hardware RAID arrays to be transparent to the system, right? OH yeah I'm raging. So much so that I'd like a second opinion before I figuaratively break our rep's neck. Could very well be the last straw in a long line of f' ups by this host.
