Installation Overview

In order to successfully complete the installation, use an FC-based device during the disk selection portion of the installation. At the end of the interactive installation, you must select Manual Reboot.

After OS installation and before rebooting, gather the configuration information by issuing the luxadm command on the newly installed logical unit number (LUN). The luxadm command output provides a map from c#t#d# to the array WWN and LUN number. Record the HBA World Wide Name (WWN) and array WWN port information.

During rebooting, use the WWN and LUN number to set the HBA BIOS for each HBA to be used to boot from each LUN on the same array. Change the system BIOS to perform booting from CD-ROM or Network to disk.

Note - Console access is required for HBA and system BIOS changes.

In addition, note the following during the Sun Solaris OS installation.
