NAME

     hpt27xx — HighPoint RocketRAID 27xx SAS 6Gb/s HBA card driver

SYNOPSIS

     To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following line in your kernel
     configuration file:

           device hpt27xx

     Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the following line in
     loader.conf(5):

           hpt27xx_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION

     The hpt27xx driver provides support for HighPoint's RocketRAID 27xx based RAID controller.

     These devices support SAS disk drives and provide RAID0 (striping), RAID1 (mirroring), and
     RAID5 functionality.

HARDWARE

     The hpt27xx driver supports the following SAS controllers:

     ·   HighPoint's RocketRAID 271x series
     ·   HighPoint's RocketRAID 272x series
     ·   HighPoint's RocketRAID 274x series
     ·   HighPoint's RocketRAID 276x series
     ·   HighPoint's RocketRAID 278x series

NOTES

     The hpt27xx driver only works on the i386 and amd64 platforms as it requires a binary blob
     object from the manufacturer which they only supply for these platforms.  The hpt27xx driver
     does not work on i386 with pae(4) enabled.
