Adaptec 7 Series RAID Adapters supported?

Recommended Posts

Hi does anyone have experience or know if the Adaptec 7 Series cards are supported?

In special I'm planning to pick up this one model 72405: 24 internal ports

 

since all the other cards I've tried didn't get much success breaking the 16 SATA host adapter limitation, by combining several 8 ports,

it'll appear I'll have to get an actual card that can deliver 24 ports in a single card to solve my problem.

I know that the 16 port PMC Adaptec HBA 1000-16i appears to work with dsm5.2 using the standard bootloader but the person who was using it said it didn't do SMART. Not sure how related that is to the 7 series.

I was doing some googling around, and apparently Driver wise for Linux, from Adaptec 6 series and above, it uses the same architecture, as in HDDs from Series 6, 7 and 8 are all interchangeable, however... that might or might not be the same in regards to drivers.
