Are the SAS drives multipathed? If so, do you have round-robin (default in most
Solaris distros) or logical-block?
Physically, the SAS drives are not multipathed as I connected them
directly to the HBA. I also disable multipathing via mpt_sas.conf.
3. All 4 drives are connected to a single HBA, so I assume the mpt_sas driver
is used. Are SAS and SATA drives handled differently ?
Yes. SAS disks can be multipathed, SATA disks cannot.
