Would you please expand upon this, because I'm really interested
in what your thoughts are..... since I work on Sun's SAS driver :)
Hi James - just the man I have a couple of questions for... :)
Will the LsiLogic 3041E-R (4-port internal, SAS/SATA, PCI-e) HBA work as a
generic ZFS/JBOD SATA controller?
It does (I've used it). Kind of.
When I've had it attached to an external JBOD, it works fine with only
1 or 2 drives, but when the JBOD (promise j300s) is fully populated
with 12 drives, it flakes out (I/O errors). Windows had no problems.
It works better with the LSI drivers than the Sun mpt driver.
Sorry I don't remember many more details than that. You can search
on comp.unix.solaris for a thread a few months ago about it.
It only works on x86.
I ended up selling it and the JBOD, just couldn't get it working reliably.
