Hello sunmanagers,
  Many thanks to all .
"If the PCI card does not have an OpenBoot
BIOS, it won't be visible to probe-scsi-all.
The Adaptec probably has an Intel friendly BIOS 
on it.  In addition, Solaris won't use the board
because there are no drivers for the Adaptec
"the card should be detected as a pci-device (show-devs) , but is not
supported as a hba in a Sun. Adaptec offers no drivers for Solaris SPARC.
Buy a Sun hba either single- or dual-channel. Other sources are LSI Logic
(only 53C875 based one), IntraServer, Antares or Qlogic. All these
manufacturers offer special cards (read: expensive) for use in a Sun."

for a list of Sparc compatible SCSI cards.
