Hi Charles,

> What brand of drives are you running?

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?
