can anyone recommend a Sata pci or pci-e card that is compatible with OpenSolaris? Raid isn't necessary as aim is to use ZFS.
I ended up getting:
- Intel sasuc8i (based on LSI 1068)
- Dell 5/i SAS (Dell code UCS-51)
- Sil3124 based card
Both are very cheap(sil3124 ~$50, Dell $25 including cables), 4 port and work reasonably well using OpenSolaris build 132. The Dell card doesn't always play nice on Intel chipset boards. It requires taping pins 5-6 from the pci-e connector.
