Purpose/Scope:

This document describes how to identify if a Solaris[TM] operating environment is installed under the control of a platforms hardware RAID management device for it's onboard disks.

This document discusses the LSI 1020, LSI 1030, LSI SAS 1064, LSI SAS 1068, LSI SAS 1078 and Adaptec/Intel STK controllers in H/W RAID or JBOD mode.

It is beyond the scope of this document to cover the SoC based 6Gb SAS controllers or external disk arrays.

More platforms other than those listed may have a PCI card containing one of the covered RAID devices, however these platforms do not support an installation of Solaris on the internal disks whilst under the control of the RAID device.
