We use products from Antares and Intraserver, both work fine. The former
is based on the Symbios chipset.

Have you looked into antare's symbios adapters? They are pci, and
pretty well supported (as opposed to the 2940UW/OFF.

I had a lot of problems getting a 2940 to work in an ultra-10 and finally
gave up and used the Sun controller. I know the controller itself was
good because it had been previously used in an ultra-5 with no problems.
It just didn't want to play in the ultra-10. Of course, the u-5 was
running 2.6 and the u-10 is running 7 so that may have contributed to
the problem as well.

I bought an el-cheapo Symbios logic controller for a PC. It works
flawlessly in our Sparc 10 under Solaris 7. The exact product number
of our controller is:
it seems to be a no-name brand.

You can use the Symbios Logic 8751 which uses an LSI Logik 53C875 chip
which is directly supported bye the OpenBootROM
Al Hopper <firstname.lastname@example.org> voiced:
Use a Symbios SYM8751SPE (www.lsilogic.com). Symbios was acquired by LSI
some time ago. You can buy these directly through Insight Electronics in
small quantities only with a credit card for around $120. This card will
work with the built-in glm drivers that come with your Sun box and
performance is better than the adaptec cards.
Contract Carolyn Golash at Insight Electronics @ 1-888-677-3135
PS: There are other Symbios cards if you need/want dual channels etc.
