Oracle has qualified two different 8-Port, 3Gbps, SAS Host Bus Adapters (HBA's) for the Sun Storage J4000 Arrays. Each HBA may be referred to in several ways:
- PCI Express 8-Port Host Adapter, Option SG-XPCIE8SAS-E-Z, P/N 7050793 or 375-3487, Code Name Pandora
- 8-Port SAS RAID External HBA (External), Option SGXPCIESAS-R-EXT-Z, P/N 375-3537, Code name Prometheus
In order to diagnose and repair problems with the J4000 array, it is important to know the attachment point on the server. This document will help identify which HBA is connected to the J4000 for Solaris hosts. Pandora provides connectivity to the J4000 arrays as a simple JBOD device ("just a bunch of disks"). Prometheus is a hardware RAID HBA.
