IT is "Initiator Target", and many LSI chips have a version of their
firmware available that will put them into this mode, which is
desirable for ZFS. This is opposed to other LSI firmware modes like
"IR" which is RAID, I believe. (which you do not want). Since the H200
uses a LSI chip, you can download that firmware from LSI and flash it
to the card turning it into an IT-mode card and a simple HBA.
