DESCRIPTION

This driver is for the Promise Supertrak SX6000 ATA hardware RAID controller. It supports (in hardware) RAID levels 0, 1, 0+1, 3, 5 and JBOD on up to 6 ATA disk drives, including automatic rebuild and hotswap, and supports signalling disk status on LEDs on Promise Superswap disk enclosures. The Supertrak line of controllers does not support non-disk devices.

HARDWARE

NOTES

The pst driver does not support manipulating the RAID from the OS, RAIDs need to be set up from the onboard BIOS. However, hot swap, hot spare, and automatic rebuilds are supported without a reboot.
