OT: Adaptec SATA Raid controllers

asmith-4
Hi,

 

I have just taken a contract at a company for to help with driving some
procedure into their IT services to meet their growth demands. As an aside I
have picked up on discussions about number of failures of SATA RAID
subsystems using Adaptec 2610SA controllers provided by HP (running under
various OS).

 

They actually seem to be getting drives failing at an alarming rate and are
actually getting occasional file system corruptions when this happens
(typically on RAID 5 configurations).

 

I have never encountered hot swap on SATA before and am wondering if anybody
knows SATA well and can provide some info about SATA reliability in hot plug
environments.

 

-Andy

You really have come to the wrong mailing list.  This is a mailing
list about OpenBSD.

It is not a mailing list about SATA or SATA reliability.  Nor is not a
mailing list setup to assist you in fulfilling your contracts.

It is about OpenBSD (which you do not mention), and which does not
support those controllers you mention.

Please stay on topic.
