Thanks to all who responded.

I should have mentioned beforehand that we were running Solaris 2.6 with the FAS
patch applied. And I should have mentioned that I wanted an SBUS card.

The winning card is the X1063A SBus F/W SWIS/S Adapter which uses a QLogic chip. sells a similar (or maybe the same) card.

It would have been nice of Andataco to tell me beforehand that their drive did
not work with the FAS card. I might have gotten the right card the first time.
