Is there a SCSI RAID 5 controller for OES Linux?

Is there a supported SCSI 320 RAID 5 controller for OES Linux? Has
anyone got this working? There are no SCSI RAID controllers at all for
9.0-9.3 and SLES listed at http://cdb.novell.com/

My HP Ultra320 array controllers work just fine with sles9.

It doesn't look like the HP Ultra320 supports RAID 5. I'm looking for
a hardware RAID 5 controller that works with OES linux.

Smart Array Controller 641, SUSE LINUX Enterprise Server 9 (x86)

Listed at HP, that will do RAID5 and ADG ...

Don't see the problem.

Thanks! That looks like it should do the trick.

Eh? Even the onboard HP 6i controllers do Ultra320, and work with SLES

I don't have a Proliant server. I'm hoping the HP Smart Array 641 card
will work in a non-HP system.

So my question remains, is there a supported SCSI 320 RAID 5
controller for OES Linux? It's starting to look like the hardware
support for OES Linux is extremely limited. Buy a Proliant or
fugettabout it. That's not an option for us. Oh, well, there go any
plans to move from Netware.

Dozens. Everyone that's supported in SLES9SP1, which is virtually all of
them.

Is there a list of these anywhere? There are no SCSI RAID controllers
at all for 9.0-9.3 and SLES listed at http://cdb.novell.com/ , let
alone RAID 5 controllers.

Unfortunately, the Linux stuff does not seem to be in the Novell
certification database. You should check the following list which gives
a better indication, even though it isn't complete either:

Thanks, Marcel.
I've also been looking at the Adaptec SCSI RAID 2130SLP, which claims
to support SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 9
