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.
