Welcome to HWraid for GNU/Linux


2011/07/19 -- megaclisas-status and sas2ircu-status have been updated to fix bugs. Etch repository is now deprectated and won't be updated anymore.

2010/12/08 -- Two new tools (and a wiki page) have been added to deal with LSI's Fusion MPT SAS2. This chip is the one used by Dell PERC H200/H700 HBAs for example.
I'm really looking for testers, please contact me from ticket system!

2010/09/22 -- Adaptec Storage Manager and all others Adaptec tools have been updated to release 6.50.18570. Please test it!

This website aims to be the starting point for people wondering how to use and manage and harware RAID HBAs on GNU/Linux.
There are many vendor and model of hardware controllers. Some are fully supported on Linux, some are nearly unusable.

Having a kernel driver for the card is the first thing needed. However, once it's done the sysadmin needs to be able to manage, and of course to keep in touch with the disks status to be able to replace a failed disk as soon as possible.
This aspect is really important and we will try to tell you most of all we know about opensource and proprietary tools used to report card and disks status.

Please notice the information available on this site have been provided by sysadmin on their free time in the hope it could be useful.
There's of course no warranty about all what's written or downloadable here. However we do our best to have fully verified informations.

Please use the ticket system to report us any issue and support us by clicking the "donate button" at the bottom of the page'''

Enjoy!
