Solaris 9 on ProLiant ML370 G4


we're trying to install Solaris 9 on a new ProLiant ML370 G4 server, which is equipped with a SmartArray 6402 controller.

We created one RAID ADG volume consisting of all six 146GB drives and used the driver from the ML370 support website at to access the volume from Solaris.
However during installation, Solaris complains about not finding any disks. Still it recognizes some kind of drive with about 46GB capacity.

We noted that HP does not explicitly list the SmartArray 6402 controller as being supported by the driver cpqary3. Does this mean that our model is currently unsupported?

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get Solaris 9 to work on this server? I will supply more detailed error information once I'm at the machine again.

Thank you,
