Sun Ultra 27 Workstation Linux, OpenSolaris and Solaris Operating System Installation Guide

Installing Drivers

After installing the OS, run the installation script provided on the Tools and Drivers DVD to install the drivers that correspond to your OS.

The Tools and Drivers DVD is included with your workstation.

Note –

The Tools and Drivers DVD also contains the tools to re-create and mount the diagnostic partition. You should not have to do this unless you accidentally erased it. See the Sun Ultra 27 Workstation Service Manual for details.

Perform this procedure to install drivers if you are performing a new installation of the Solaris OS.
