comment Looking for “PERC H730P Mini” driver for Solaris 10
Ok, thank you for your input, you've been very helpful! I admit I gave up on this and now I'm giving ZFS on Ubuntu a try, since I don't seem to be able to use the controller in the HBA mode in Solaris.

I don't seem to be able to load the LSI firmware over the iDrac interface of my Dell server.

Yeah, scapci identifies the controller. I tried both controller modes - HBA and RAID, and in Ubuntu I can see the disks and mount 'em. In Solaris, however, I only see disks when I export them as RAID0 virtual disks, which I'd like to avoid. How can I check and/or enforce the mr_sas driver to be in use?

Thanks! So I tried and loaded this driver during the installation, I also made sure it's loaded using modinfo | grep sas (showing mr_sas), but neither Solaris 10 nor 11 seem to list the disks in cfgadm -al or format -e. Do I have to do more?

Thank you, the last comment on the seqno fill method was very helpful!

comment What is a good configuration for a zpool built from 8-10 SSD for a home file server exported via NFS?
Samsung SSD 840 5B0Q. We have Solaris on other file servers so I'd like to keep it unless there's a good reason to switch. But don't mirrors offer a smaller fault tolerance? As for NFS we have NFSD_SERVERS=2048, LOCKD_SERVERS=1024 and *_LISTEN_BACKLOG=32 on the server side, but the number of nfsd threads is usually around 300-400.

comment Is it possible to change filesystem properties for an existing ZFS pool?
Is there a way to enable compression AND have the OS perform the compression inplace within the same zpool/zfs? I don't have enough space to run send/recv on a second zfs.
