Absolutely. I'm using a fully-populated D2700 with an HP ProLiant DL380 G7 server running NexentaStor.
On the HBA side, I used the LSI 9211-8i 6G controllers for the server's internal disks (boot, a handful of large disks, Pliant SSDs for L2Arc). There is also a DDRDrive for ZIL. To connect to the D2700 enclosure, I used 2 x LSI 9205 6G HBAs; one 4-lane SAS cable per storage controller on the D2700. These were setup with MPxIO (dual controllers, dual paths, dual-ported disks) and required a slight bit of tuning of /kernel/drv/scsi_vhci.conf, but the performance is great now. The enclosure is supported and I've been able to setup drive slot maps and control disk LED's, etc. -- Edmund White ewwh...@mac.com 847-530-1605 On 11/30/11 5:27 AM, "Ragnar Sundblad" <ra...@csc.kth.se> wrote: > >Hello all, > >We are thinking about using HP D2700 SAS enclosures with Sun X41xx servers >and Solaris (Solaris 10, at least to begin with). > >Has anyone any experience with using those with Solaris and zfs? > >What would you recommend for HBAs? >We currently have the Sun branded LSI SAS3801e HBAs (1068e based), which >are 3 Gb/s.
