SUMMARY: Using AHA2940/UW in an Ultra10?

I asked -

I have searched the archives to no avail. I am trying to get a standard
AHA2940/UW PCI card to work on an Ultra10 running Solaris8. I did see one
message which claimed this would work:

the consensus of responses seems to be - FORGET IT. All recommend using a
newer card with the Symbios chip, either the Sun manufactured card or the
Antares card.

For now, I am using the Adaptec card with Solaris 2.6 and the driver
downloaded from the Adaptec web site. Seems to work just fine. The driver
did not work with Solaris 8, so there may be differences which prevent it
working with a 64-bit OS (I didn't try Solaris 7).
