Updating indiana opensolaris
When Oracle bought Sun, it changed the license of Solaris 10 (the previous version) so that it was no longer free to use and increased the price of their contracts to 00 - 00 per socket per year.
For those that that prefer Solaris over other Open Source alternatives - such as the founder of Open Indiana - an alternative option now exists.
If you’re in the same situation as I, you’ll (eventually) see a notification that no driver can be found for an ‘LSI Logic Mega RAID SAS 9250’.
The IBM M1015 is actually a rebranded LSI-controller.
I hope I can save someone else a few days of troubleshooting by describing the process of installing a driver during the installation of Open Solaris, and upgrading the firmware.
Insert CD with text-install, reboot the server and let it boot from CD (if it doesn’t, reset the u EFI-BIOS to defaults, but enable ‘Legacy Only’ in the Boot Manager).
Since it is Solaris derived, there is a community that uses OI for ZFS storage servers for example.
The popular napp-it ZFS storage web GUI can be used atop OI to make administration of Solaris derived ZFS a breeze.

Furthermore, it will only be used to control the OS-disks and some SSD cache-devices in the server itself, and all data-disks will be in separate enclosures.
While installing these machines we ran into some problems with a missing driver for the M1015-controller, with both Open Solaris (snv_134) and Open Indiana (oi_148), and an outdated firmware.
Once textinstall is loaded, choose your keyboard, language.
In the installation menu, choose ‘ Install Additional Drivers’.
