You are correct in that it needs the special SBus card, It know they normally
come with one or two GBICs. The fibre cables are normal SC type. I have some
of these cards free to good home if you cover postage should you need them. I
do not have an array to test with, but do have spare controller.

It did come with a VXVM license (not VXFS from what I remember) built in for
earlier versions of VXVM, if you need a copy I have various versions I can let
you have a ISO of. personally if you can run Sol 10, then would run ZFS, I
always find VXVM way too complicated.......
