The driver in san/solaris.py focuses entirely on iSCSI.  I don't think
existing systems can be upgraded manually but I've never really tried.
We started with a clean slate for Solaris 11 and Cinder and added local
ZFS support for single-system and demo rigs along with a fibre channel
and iSCSI drivers.

The driver is publically viewable here:


Please note that this driver is based on Havana.  We know it's old and
we're working to get it updated to Juno right now.  I can try to work
with my team to get a blueprint filed and start working on getting it
integrated into trunk.
