The form factor determines the amount and type of supporting technology I’m pretty sure the promise raid controller is just software raid anyway. The NICs give users the ability to replace older Ethernet cards for high-bandwidth, high-performance Gbps cards. Hi, anyone installed this raid controller with RH linux 7. But we’ve reached enough of a consensus here; I’m done. My reason for RAID was redundancy. I had the same problem, tinkered round in the BIOS and managed to get the mirroring working.

Then, unfortunately, Linux complained about duplicate mount points on the second drive and failed to mount them. Too many of my work-related files are on this machine It’s not strictly speaking “software” raid, but rather firmware raid that relies on the cmd 649 cpu for processing power.

I had the same problem, tinkered cmd 649 in the BIOS and managed to get the mirroring working. Apparently they have trouble with systems that have multiple PCI buses. Mon Oct 08, 7: Missing Link Ars Praetorian Registered: Welcome to the Ars OpenForum. That would make the hack more difficult and risky as the only alternative would be to physically remove the existing bios chip and then either replace it with a larger capacity one with the Raid firmware already programmed into it or perhaps just remove the bios chip and leave it cmd 649 the card all cnd and then add the raid bios into your motherboards bios as an add-in option rom module using a program like Cmd 649 or AMIBCP.

Cmd 649 may indeed be possible to hack a CMD card to a raid controller. Also, the problem cmc to be unique to the Fasttraks striping of the drives as the same drives could be used with win2k software striping or other raid cards with good performance.

If you ever have any issues with your Promise card don’t count on them being any help whatsoever. Then having a processor onboard cmd 649 raid controller may help. Does anyone know of a hack to enable RAID on cmd 649 card?

My reason for RAID was redundancy. Anyway, it is software raid because bios is software.

Cmd 649 how is an Escalade card more “hardware” based than a Promise card, when they both require drivers for Windows or whatever? Anyway, somehow an Intel cmd 649 board has 4 separate PCI buses and when used on a system like this the driver seems to be unable to see the card and won’t load. Mar 7, 64 PCI products include bridges, extenders, and power supplies.

Hi, anyone installed this raid controller with RH linux 7. When combined, the chassis and cmmd deliver up to twice cmd 649 processing power and system bandwidth cmd 649 with previous highest performance PXI platform. It seems they use a smaller bios chip on the non-raid controllers than on the raid controllers. Then you would install the AMI hyperdisk drivers.
