LSI SAS/SATA Controller


It's actually a SAS controller with SATA ports. IOC, fast, PCI-X 133Mhz - all the goodies.

Specs and Chipset

from lsiutil:

     Port Name         Chip Vendor/Type/Rev    MPT Rev  Firmware Rev
 1.  itmpt0            LSI Logic SAS1064 A3      105      01120000

It's important to make sure you get the right firmware on the card or it'll throw sense errors and resets in Solaris.

This release works:

Current active firmware version is 01120000 (1.18.00)
Firmware image's version is MPTFW-
  LSI Logic
x86 BIOS image's version is MPTBIOS- (2005.08.29)
FCode image's version is MPT SAS FCode Version 1.00.37 (2005.06.13)


Just about every operating system.

This is one of the few SATA controller options for Solaris on SPARC. The itmpt driver from LSI is supported on OLD Solaris, not just 10 - and the modern Solaris mpt driver by James is pretty damn good.
