Interested in grabbing my first LSI controller (something like an LSI00301).
After seeing all the weird and disturbing things traditional RAID cards can do (even if RAID is disabled), I’m a bit spooked at the idea of using a card.
Do HBA SATA cards give ZFS “bit level access” (I think this phrase was said in a l1t video). Or do some cause issues similar to what you would see in a RAID card?
All I want is a card that turns a PCI-E slot into several SATA ports and presents the drive to the OS as if it was connected directly to the motherboard.
