Has anyone done any installs with Solaris 10 x86 on UCS B-series yet? If so, anything worth paying attention to? I have a request from a customer to put Solaris 10 on UCS and up until now I was not aware that Solaris will be supported on UCS until sometime in the Fall. Thank you in advance!
I tried it way back in August or September, and back then couldn't get the Intel networking to work (Qlogic Menlo card). Everything else seemed to work though. Expect you may have to manually load drivers, I probably could have done then, had I had more time.
Thank you for your response! I will keep that in mind. From the following doc, it looks like the QLogic Menlo is supported but the Emulex CNA is not. I will try to load the driver manually and keep you posted.
This thread might be a little old, but I have a driver problem when installing Solaris 10 x86 from SAN. Here in the Montreal office, we're using B200 M1 blades with the Qlogic M71KR-E network adaptor - http://www.sun.com/bigadmin/hcl/data/components/details/3241.html. This product show up in the interoperability matrix, but Solaris cannot find the SAN during installation.
We were in touch with Cisco's Solaris division and they confirmed that the Menio-Q and QLogic connectors work in their lab. It seems that the problem is in our lab's setup. Seems like we don't need Solaris support to download any patches ... for now
So, we will dig through it and find what exactly is wrong. I will post back the source of the problem, then you guys might be able to avoid it in the future.
