Ticket #10730 (new defect)
Can't use SCSI/SAS LsiLogic HBA with NetWare 6.5's LSIMPTNW.HAM driver => fixed in SVN

It seems that the included LSIMPTNW.HAM driver, version 5.02, as well as the updated 5.03.01 version fetched from LSI's website cannot detect the SCSI HBA when VirtualBox emulates it in LsiLogic mode under NetWare 6.5 SP8. It also doesn't detect the same HBA in SAS mode, either, failing with the same exact error message in the screenshot.
Not certain if this is a VirtualBox-specific issue or not. I am also opening a support request with LSI and providing them with this ticket number and the same attached screenshot to see if it is something they can fix on their end with an updated LSIMPTNW.HAM driver.
It also appears that SATA emulation is also not possible with NW65SP8 because the Intel ICH* emulation is only in AHCI mode, which neither IDEATA.HAM or IDESATA.HAM can recognize. This appears to be a more NetWare-specific issue and likely will not be fixed by Novell anytime soon (though I might go file a bug with them, too, just in case).
So for now, the only properly-supported disk adapter in VBox with NetWare is IDE emulation OR SCSI BusLogic if you can hunt down the ~1998 copy of BLMM3.HAM/BLMM3.DDI, available from a site which documents extremely similar issues with NetWare under VMWare.
