Known Software and Hardware Bugs

The following software and hardware bugs apply to Sun Fire high-end systems.

Deleteboard Shows Leakage Error (4730142)

Warnings might be displayed when a DR command is executing on a system that is configured with the SunSwift PCI card, Option 1032. These warnings appear on domains that are running either the Solaris 8, Solaris 9, or Solaris 10 software. The following warning is an example:

Aug 12 12:27:41 machine genunix: WARNING:
 vmem_destroy('pcisch2_dvma'): leaked

These warnings are benign. The Direct Virtual Memory Access (DVMA) space is properly refreshed during the DR operation. No true kernel memory leak occurs.

Workaround: To prevent the warning from being displayed, add the following line to /etc/system:

set pcisch:pci_preserve_iommu_tsb=0

This problem is not seen on a CISCO 6509 switch.

Workaround: Use another switch. Alternatively, you can consult Cisco for a patch for the listed switches.
