Hello All.

I built a FreeNas using a superMicro server. I installed a 10gb ethernet HBA and a dual port Fiber HBA.

Question 1 is how do i install drivers for these HBA cards???

Question 2 can i hook up a 24 bay raid system to the fiber HBA so the freenass can see it??

Im new on here and new at using the free nas

Can any one help me out.... Please.....

Did you check the FreeBSD supported hardware list to see if the controller is supported?

There's a link in this post:

Even if FreeBSD supports, it doesn't mean FreeNAS has the driver (kernel module). You may need to compile the kernel module and load it (kldload) and if that works, then add it to your /boot/loader.conf file.
