asr -- driver for Adaptec I2O based SCSI/ATA host bus adapters SYNOPSIS
device asr DESCRIPTION
The Adaptec asr driver provides access to disks and disk arrays controlled by I2O based host bus adapters and SmartRAID SCSI RAID adapters through the standard SCSI disk da(4) interface. The supported adapters provide 64 bit PCI, Compact PCI, Zero Channel PCI, and up to four channels of Ultra2, Ultra 160, or Ultra320 SCSI, or two channels of 1GB Fibre. All support RAID-0, RAID-1, RAID-10, RAID-5 and RAID-50 arrays. All SCSI target types are supported. For the ATA based controllers, one IDE drive per channel is supported. Hot-swapping of IDE drives is not supported at this time. All host bus adapters must be configured before they can be used with any operating system. Please contact Adaptec directly to obtain the latest information on configuration utilities for the adapters. Currently there are both a Motif based GUI configuration utility and a CLI based configuration utility available from the Adaptec Web site. The cards and arrays can also be configured via the BIOS based configura- tion tool (SMOR). HARDWARE
The adapters currently supported by the asr driver include the following: o Adaptec Zero-Channel SCSI RAID 2000S, 2005S, 2010S, 2015S o Adaptec SCSI RAID 2100S, 2110S o Adaptec ATA-100 RAID 2400A o Adaptec SCSI RAID 3200S, 3210S o Adaptec SCSI RAID 3400S, 3410S o Adaptec SmartRAID PM1554 o Adaptec SmartRAID PM1564 o Adaptec SmartRAID PM2554 o Adaptec SmartRAID PM2564 o Adaptec SmartRAID PM2664 o Adaptec SmartRAID PM2754 o Adaptec SmartRAID PM2865 o Adaptec SmartRAID PM3754 o Adaptec SmartRAID PM3755U2B / SmartRAID V Millennium o Adaptec SmartRAID PM3757 o DEC KZPCC-AC (LVD 1-ch, 4MB or 16MB cache), DEC KZPCC-CE (LVD 3-ch, 64MB cache), DEC KZPCC-XC (LVD 1-ch, 16MB cache), DEC KZPCC-XE (LVD 3-ch, 64MB cache) -- rebadged SmartRAID V Millennium FILES
/dev/asr* Adaptec SCSI RAID control nodes NOTES
The ATA based controllers present their devices as SCSI-like devices via CAM. For IDE drives attached to these cards, a subset of standard SCSI commands and mode pages are understood via translation performed in the card's firmware. SEE ALSO
The asr (Adaptec SCSI RAID) driver first appeared as the dpti2o driver under BSDi BSD/OS 3.2, then under FreeBSD 2.2.8 and was ported over to the CAM layer represented in 4.0. AUTHORS

eisa -- Introduction to EISA bus machine-independent drivers and support SYNOPSIS
options EISAVERBOSE Machine-dependent; depends on the bus topology and EISA bus interface of your system. Typical EISA buses are either connected directly to the main system bus, or via an PCI to EISA bridge. See the intro(4) documentation for your system for details. DESCRIPTION
NetBSD includes a machine-independent EISA bus subsystem and several machine-independent EISA device drivers. Your system may support additional EISA devices. Drivers for EISA devices not listed here are machine-dependent. Consult your system's intro(4) for additional information. SUPPORTED DEVICES
NetBSD includes machine-independent EISA drivers, sorted by device type and driver name: Disk and tape controllers cac Compaq array controllers. mlx Mylex DAC960 and DEC SWXCR RAID controllers. SCSI interfaces ahb Adaptec 174x SCSI interfaces. ahc Adaptec AIC 7770, 274x, and 284x SCSI interfaces. bha BusLogic BT-74x SCSI interfaces. dpt DPT SmartCache/SmartRAID III and IV SCSI interfaces. uha Ultrastor 24f SCSI interfaces. Network interfaces ep 3Com 3c579 and 3c592 10Mbit Ethernet, and 3c597 10/100Mbit Ethernet interfaces. fea Digital DEFEA FDDI interfaces. le Digital DE422 Ethernet interfaces. tlp Digital DE425 Ethernet interfaces. Note that most or all EISA devices also have PCI or ISA equivalents. These are listed in pci(4), isa(4), or isapnp(4), respectively. The manual pages for each individual driver also lists the supported bus variants. SEE ALSO
