| Netra Blade X3-2B (formerly Sun Netra X6270 M3 Server Module)
Oracle Solaris 10 8/11 might not initialize and recognize a Sun Netra 6000 Virtualized Multi-Fabric 10GbE Network Express Module M2 NEM when it is hot-plugged. This can happen if the BIOS was not configured to allocate 32 MB of Memory Mapped IO (MMIO) and if a module was not installed in the slot when the OS booted.
If this situation occurs, you might see a message similar to the following in /var/adm/messages:
WARNING: (pcieb9): failed to probe the Connection Slot4
If you intend to hot-plug one or more Sun Netra 6000 Virtualized Multi-Fabric 10GbE Network Express Module M2s into a Sun Netra 6000 M2 Chassis containing an Oracle Netra Blade X3-2B running Oracle Solaris 10 8/11 OS, first allocate 32MB of MMIO for each device using the BIOS Setup program before booting. Perform the following workaround:
Note - This is only necessary if the NEM is not present when the operating system is booted.
