OS X Versions versus SAS adapters
on Nov 2, 2015 at 4:03:21 pm

We've recently been getting calls from users of older (10.6-10.8) versions of OS X asking about which SAS solutions they should use.

Here's the simplest guidance that we can provide:

  • ATTO Technologies - 10.6.8 - 10.11*

  • HighPoint Technologies - 10.9.5 - 10.11**

  • Areca - Tape is not properly supported on any OS X release

  • Others - Don't waste your money or time on the others if you're connecting tape.

  • * If you are using ATTO Technologies H680 or R680 HBAs on OS X 10.10 or 10.11, you MUST download and install the latest drivers and firmware from the website. Also, OS X does not support the ATTO 12Gb SAS family.

    ** ONLY the RocketRAID 2720, 2721, and 2722, RocketRAID 4522, and RocketStore 6328 units support Tape under OS X. Also, the RS6328L is not the same as the RS6328.

    BRU ... because it's the RESTORE that matters!
