  1. Love the show just a few quick question on ZFS.
  2.  
  3. 1. Do you use hardware RAID at all, or do you specify JBOD (dumb) HBAs for all your ZFS setups? Have you ever had to upgrade firmware on disk drives in a ZFS pool? Any advice on doing this. Do you take each disk offline one by one?

  5.  
  6. 2. Can you comment on SATA drives behind SAS expanders? Garrett D'Amore of illumos has a few postings on horror-/war- stories on SATA drives behind SAS expanders. I'm wondering is this a real generic issue or specific to the illumos LSI/SAS HBA stack.
