    Dell PowerEdge R310, Need PERC H700 driver


      I can't find the Solaris 10 x64 driver for the PowerEdge R310 with a PERC H700 adapter installed. Has anyone installed this and can you tell me where/what driver to use. Dell is referring me to the LSI website and I just want to run it up the flag to see what anyone else has done to resolve this.

          A quick search of these forums suggests that nothing "PERC" has ever worked with Solaris, at least not without a lot of effort on your part.

          The forum discussions also suggest you actually do need to figure out and confirm who is the actual underlying manufacturer if the HBA's chipset. Maybe that manufacturer (possibly LSI) will have something. Then you're going to be on your own with driver installation and HBA configuration.

          Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

              I contacted Dell tech support and got bumped up to their server division. They didn't have a driver and it took a bit for them to find the cross-reference part number for an LSI driver. Here's the link they gave me for the H700.


              The readme from the driver I downloaded is below. The RAID card you mentioned is on the list and definitely would have worked for me. I checked here after I got off the phone with Dell.
