SmartArray 6400: Adapter heartbeat failed


I'm trying to put FreeBSD 6.0 on a DL380 G3, which has a 14 disk bay attached to a SmartArray 6400 (plus two disks on the internal SA 5* controller).

I configured 2 RAID5 devices from the 14 disks, plus 1 hot spare for each device.

I can newfs several partitions on the RAID5 devices with no problem, but as soon as I do some serious I/O on these filesystems, the kernel croaks "ciss1: ADAPTER HEARTBEAT FAILED", and then the whole box is practically paralized (ping works, but everything disk related just hangs), so a power cycle is required.

Any idea what's up here?  Broken hardware maybe?
