Does adaptec make a Solaris driver for their card? You'd need that.

As far as I'm aware, Sun makes no drivers for adaptec cards.
One line of sun cards is similar to a set of LSI cards and the OS
provided 'glm' drivers will work with them.
A scsi card may or may not have open firmware drivers so that the OBP
can communicate with the card. Without them, Solaris can use the card
just fine, but you cannot boot from it or see it in 'probe-scsi-all'.
