I am not positive but I think they are Seagates. It's hardware raid so
freebsd doesn't know, aacli doesn't say, and the info on dell's site
considers it a "dell" drive with a dell part number. "Dell" drives are
whoever they have a contract with, and I believe around the time we
bought these drives they had a contract with Seagate.

You are using an I20 adapter?
