Release Notes Supplement for Solaris 10 3/05 HW1
This appendix provides information about issues specific to the Solaris 10 3/05 HW1 OS release.
Note - The information in this appendix applies only to platforms still running the temporary Solaris 10 3/05 HW1 release. It does not apply to systems running the Solaris 10 3/05, Solaris 10 3/05 HW2, or Solaris 10 1/06 OS. For information about the HW2 OS, which also is replaced by the Solaris 10 1/06 OS, see Appendix B.
If you are using hardware still running the temporary Solaris 10 3/05 HW1 OS (a specific form of the Solaris 10 3/05 OS that initially shipped on certain hardware), take into account the following issues as well as those published in the Solaris 10 Release Notes (part number 817-0552) on http://docs.sun.com.
In Solaris 10 3/05 HW1, the UltraSPARC IV+ large pages feature is available, but should not be used. Running an application that attempts to map to large pages might cause the application to execute improperly and result in a core dump or hang.
When cfgadm (1M) removes memory from a running system, the system may hang when running applications that use large pages, such as Oracle. The kernel fails to find memory on other boards to replace large pages of data from the memory being removed. There are no error messages for this condition.
If an UltraSPARC IV+ board is removed from a Sun Fire E20K or E25K system's domain via dynamic reconfiguration, the prtconf and prtdiag programs still report the nodes corresponding to the UltraSPARC IV+ CPUs as being in the system. These reports remain until the system is rebooted.
|WARNING:/ssm@0,0/pci@18,700000/SUNW,qlc@3,1/fp@0,0/ssd@w500000e010e9a152,0 (ssd68): transport rejected bad packet|
Workaround: Try using fewer CPUs on the affected systems. For example, if this error occurs on a Sun Fire E25K system, try booting with fewer than 120 CPU cores. Use DR to b ring the remaining boards into the active domain.
This problem might occur on a freshly installed system or a system that imports a large number of new Service Management Facility (SMF) manifests during the boot. After these booting conditions, IPsec (part of svc:/network/initial:default) might be initialized prior to the encryption framework (svc:/system/cryptosvc:default). Because authentication or encryption algorithms are not available, creation of IPsec security associations might fail with an error message such as this:
|PF_KEY error: type=ADD, errno=22: Invalid argument, diagnostic code=40: Unsupported authentication algorithm|

This section provides patch information that applies only to SPARC systems running the Solaris 10 3/05 HW1 OS. It does not apply to systems running the Solaris 10 3/05, Solaris 10 3/05 HW2, or Solaris 10 1/6 OS. See also the Solaris 10 Release Notes at http://docs.sun.com.
The showrev -p command provides a list of all patches that were applied to the installed system, regardless of how these patches were applied. The Solaris 10 3/05 HW1 software includes a known and tested level of patches. However, patches cannot be backed out of the Solaris 10 3/05 HW1 release.
Note - The Solaris 10 3/05 HW1 software contains special patches that perform tasks that are specific to the Solaris release installation images. These patches are specific to each Solaris software release and do not apply to other systems or releases of the Solaris software. Do not attempt to download or install these patches on other systems or installations of the Solaris OS.
