I’ve been wanting (for ages) to set up a local file server with RAID. Haveing seen the ZFS launch ages ago, I want that more than any other file system (the ability to add volumes on the fly is VERY attractive).
Looking around, I can’t find any updated resource pages that list anything different from what is on:
http://forum.sun.com/jive/thread.jspa?threadID=66613&tstart=150 and http://blogs.sun.com/nachiketa/entry/general_notes_on_sata_support
Is that because there’s been no more work on these generic onboard controllers? It seems that you still have to put them into PATA compatability mode too… The HCL does list some Marvell technologies PCI controllers, but why psay for that when they come onboard?
I just wish that there was some news.
[UPDATE]: I’ve done the work of finding out here: https://dansketcher.com/2006/12/09/solaris-sata-chipsets-i-can-run-zsf-with/
