I'm thinking of getting LSI 9212-4i4e(4 internal and 4 external ports) to replace a SUN Storagetek raid card.

The StorageTek raid card seems to want to have it's drives initialized and volumes created on it before they are presented to zfs. I can't find a way of telling it just to be an HBA.

I'd prefer to have the ability to move the sas/sata drives to another system and has the sas/sata controller read the drives without if there a problem with the card.

Is it possible to disable the raid on an LSI 9212-4i4e and have the drives read by a simple sas/sata card? I'm open to other brands but I need internal and external ports.
