    The D1000 has a differential interface, and the SunSwift
    is single ended. So no, it won't work. You can find out
    the answers to these sorts of questions by looking at
    SUn's HW answerbook.

    Specifically, the external interface(s) of the D1000 are HVD
    - high voltage differential, while the disks are SE UW.

    HBAs supporting that on SPARC Solaris can be had from Sun,
    LSI Logic and others. For some time these were rather cheap, but
    now even LSI charges serious money for them.

    eBay, on the other hand, usually has some up for auction. The
    LSI 22802 comes to mind - AFAIK, it is identical to the Sun X6541A.
    These work plug&play on SPARC Solaris.

    Check this out:

    I haven't personally tried this modell on Solaris, so YMMV.

    THanks for the answers. I will buy a refurbished Sun Controller (X6541A
    - i've read the doc to the D1000 on docs.sun.com and it's the right
    controller ;))

    i found the spec at sunsolve. You're right. The SunSwift is single-ended
    and the D1000 requiresa diff. scsi-controller.

    Thanks to all for the fast replies!

    No - the D1000 (and A1000) arrays use HVD SCSI, and the SunSwift cards are
    SE/LVD SCSI, not HVD. You will have to use something like an x6541a card
    (aka Symbios/LSI SYM-22802), or another HVD SCSI card using a Symbios/LSI
    53c87x series controller which will work with the Solaris 'glm' driver.
