Hotplugging PCIe Cards with Oracle Solaris 11 (CR 7024309)

The service manual includes a task for hotplugging PCIe cards from a server running Oracle Solaris 10 and 11. However, there are additional steps for Oracle Solaris 11.

Note - Although the procedure in the service manual might state that it is for Oracle Solaris 10, the steps in the service manual are the same for both Oracle Solaris 10 and Oracle Solaris 11.


Before You Begin

The commands in this procedure temporarily disable the network. Before starting this procedure, you must be connected to the system using either a serial connection, a terminal or emulator connected directly to the host, or using Oracle ILOM RKVM.

  1. Check if Automatic NCP is enabled.

    Enter the command:

    netadm list | grep Automatic

    If it is enabled, you should see:

    ncp Automatic online

  2. If Automatic NCP is enabled, switch to manual mode. Enter the command:

    netadm enable —p ncp DefaultFixed

  3. Complete the steps in the service manual.

    Prepare a PCIe EM for Hot Plug in Oracle Solaris 10 and Solaris 11 in Sun Server X2-8 (formerly Sun Fire X4800 M2) Service Manual

  4. When you are done and the new PCIe card is installed, if you disabled Automatic NCP, re-enable it. Use the command:

    natadm enable —p ncp Automatic
