I'm getting weird errors while trying to install openindiana 151a on a
Dell R715 with a PERC H200 (based on an LSI SAS 2008). Any time the OS
tries to access the drives (for whatever reason), I get this dumped into

genunix: WARNING: Device
failed to power up
genunix: WARNING: Device
failed to power up

(these are two WD 300GB 10k SAS drives)

When this log message shows up, I can see each drive light up the drive
LED briefly and then it turns off, so apparently the OS tried to
initialize the drives, but somehow failed and gave up.

Consequently, when I try and access them in format(1), they show up as
an unknown type and installing openindiana on them fails while the
installer is trying to do fdisk.

Has anybody got any idea what I can do to the controller/drives/whatever
to fix the "failed to power up" problem? One would think that a LSI SAS
2008 chip would be problem free under Solaris (the server even lists
Oracle Solaris as an officially supported OS), but alas, I have yet to
