Hi Roel,

Check permissions and proper installment of the modules from the bge package. Once you get that fixed, check DDT again
and it should be configured correctly.

Main files of concern: 
1.'group=sys mode=0755 owner=root path=kernel/drv/amd64/bge'
2.'group=sys mode=0644 owner=root path=kernel/drv/bge.conf'

Recheck for proper driver initialization and setup.

The other hardware, outside of the RAID controller, are other small issues as mentioned.

I finally got some screenshots of the installprocess on the R320. 

It is not only the RAID controller that gives problems, there is more..

The Broadcom networkcards aren't recognized and I tried to install the new
Solaris drivers from the Broadcom website. 

Main problem with this is that there are several drivers for different
solaris versions. Only the BRCMbge-Solaris_11-i386-15.2.2-dbg package would

I also attach the printout of the installprocess for the BRCMbge package. It
will not install unless i de-install the existing bge driver. With the
original OI bge driver the nic's aren't recognized. 

As you can see in the screenshot a lot of hardware is not recognized and I
can't install OI in any form. So this is bumpy road to maybe nowhere.

If anyone can help or has tips I appreciate it!
