Daniel, be advised that this card is also in fact a 'fakeraid'
Adaptec AAR 1200, 1210, 1210SA, 1205SA series PCI cards fakeraid. This turns out to be a SiIicon Image 3112-variant or 3112A-variant. Works with a patched version of libata's sata_sil subdriver (2003-12)
You may get this working, but because it has no proper / dedicated XOR unit, when rebuilding the array your processor may well be doing most of the work. Many of these cards are aimed at the Windows crowd anyways.
Please do post your findings and let us know. I looked at this card too, but decided on the Intel due to the great price it was being offered for and the fact that I do now want to take chances with my clients data. It's not the fastest card around, but worked flawlessly from the get go.
Again, use the following resource to find out more about the various cards available : http://linuxmafia.com/faq/Hardware/sata.html
- without this I would have still been scratching my head over this silly issue. If possible, stick to a proper, hardware accelerated RAID card. Also, if a card's price makes it seem too good to be true, it probably is.
