Sun Ultra 45 and Ultra 25 Workstations Product Notes
The Sun Ultra 45 and Ultra 25 Workstations Product Notes contain late-breaking information about changes to Sun Ultra 45 and Ultra 25 hardware, software, and documentation. These product notes include:
|Note - All current Sun Ultra 45 documentation is available at:
|Note - Before removing or installing any hardware, software, or firmware components, read all of these product notes, and the service documentation for that component.|
|Note - Before removing or installing any hardware components, read all of the contents of the Sun Ultra 45 and Ultra 25 Workstations Safety and Compliance Guide, 819-2785.|
The DVD dual drive is capable of reading and writing to the following media types:
If you install a Sun XVR-300 graphics accelerator in the x8 connector, PCI-E0, (physical slot No. 2), you must install OpenBoot PROM version 4.25.7 or a subsequent compatible release. This is necessary for both the Ultra 25 and Ultra 45 workstations.
Up to two Sun XVR-300 graphics accelerators are supported on Sun Ultra 45 and Ultra 25 workstations. The graphics accelerators require Solaris 10 1/06 Operating System (OS) or later, or Solaris 9 9/05 HW OS or later.
|Note - You must install packages needed for the card to run on Solaris 10 1/06 or later from the software CD-ROM that ships with the Sun XVR-300. Refer to the Sun XVR-300 Graphics Accelerator User’s Guide, 819-6651.|
If you are experiencing any problems with cards installed in connector PCIE2, perform the following procedures.
1. Uninstall the software driver for the card.
2. Move the card to connector PCIE1.
3. Reinstall the software driver while the card is installed in connector PCIE1.
|Note - You can leave the card in PCIE1 or move it back to PCIE2.|
All DIMMs installed in the same bank must be from the same DIMM manufacturer, and have the exact same size and configuration.
When the workstations were first released, the keyboard had to be connected to the back panels. Later, support was added so that the keyboard could be connected to the front panel USB ports.
However, if you have installed a Sun XVR-2500 graphics accelerator in either PCIE1 or PCIE2, you must connect the keyboard to the back panel. The mouse can be connected to the front panel USB connector.
The following firmware and software versions are supported in this release of the Sun Ultra 45 and Ultra 25 workstations:
|Note - Sun Management Center downloads are available from: https://www.sun.com/download/
Use the A-Z Index to find the latest Sun Management Center Add-on software.
|Note - Before installing any software onto a Sun Ultra 45 or Ultra 25 hard drive, read the documentation for that software.|
This section describes the patches available for the Sun Ultra 45 and Ultra 25 workstations. Patches are available from http://www.sun.com/sunsolve. The following list of mandatory patches are loaded on the hard drive. The mandatory patches must be installed on your workstation should you modify or reinstall the OS. Other patches may be installed on your workstation as needed.
If you have cards installed in your workstation, refer to the documentation and README files for each card to determine if additional patches need to be installed.
|Note - Before contacting Sun for support, ensure that the mandatory patches are installed on your workstation. In addition to installing these patches, check the SunSolveSM web site on a regular basis for the availability of new patches.|
1. Determine whether the patches have been installed on your system.
For example, using the showrev command, type the following:
For example, if patch 118822-23 or later is installed, your system has the required version of this patch.
For example, if no version of the 118822 patch, or a version with an extension of
-22 or earlier is installed, you must download and install the new patch.
2. Go to http://www.sun.com/sunsolve to download the patches.
Using the SunSolve PatchFinder tool, specify the base patch ID number (the first six digits) to access the current release of a patch.
3. Follow the installation instructions provided in a specific patch’s README file.

This section describes issues that are known to exist at the time of this release of the Sun Ultra 45 and Ultra 25 workstations.
Systems equipped with the Sun XVR-300 graphics accelerator might indicate that a correctable error has occurred. This error is harmless, and does not compromise data integrity.
To correct this issue, append the following lines to the /etc/system file:
Reboot the system to implement the changes.
Sometimes after adding these lines to the /etc/system file, the following message appears during Solaris boot:
If you experience this error message, delete the final line in the /etc/system file (set pcie:pcie_expected_ce_mask=0x11C1), and reboot the system.
TABLE 1 lists features that are not available at the time of this release of the Sun Ultra 45 and Ultra 25 workstations.
In limited cases when a system with a Sun XVR-2500 graphics accelerator card, part number 375-3292, is transported without being repacked into the original system packaging, the card might fail. Use the original system packaging, or equivalent, to transport the system.
TABLE 2 and TABLE 3 list known issues at the time of this release for which a change request ID (CR ID, formerly known as a bug ID) has been assigned. The tables also list possible workarounds for these issues.
For more information about these CRs, visit the SunSolve web site.
Should this happen, some of the I2C devices will be missing from the device tree, including FRUID PROMs. NOTE: There is no functional impact except that hard disks will not be powered off in power saving mode.
If you have any technical questions or issues that are not addressed in the Sun Ultra 45 and Ultra 25 workstations documentation, contact your local Sun Services representative. For customers in the U.S. or Canada, call 1-800-USA-4SUN (1-800-872-4786).

This section describes changes to the Sun Ultra 45 documentation.
For the latest release version of these and other manuals, check the web site:
Table 1-5 of this installation guide incorrectly describes the DB-9 serial ports as “RS-432.” The DB-9 ports are RS-232.
The second row, column two of Table 1-2, currently reads:
“Choose Solaris 8 HW 5/03 Operating System release.”
The text should read:
“Choose Solaris 10 Operating System release.”
The following information is supplemental:

If you installed any component of the Sun Studio 11 developer tools on a network server, to send getting started information to the developers who use the network-installed software, you can use the email template:
You should now set your PATH to include:
For instance, if <install-directory> is /opt (the default) for Bourne-family shells (sh, bash, ksh): $ PATH=/opt/SUNWspro/bin:$PATH
The export PATH for C-family shells (csh, tcsh):
% setenv PATH /opt/SUNWspro/bin:$PATH
Then, to run the IDE, type at the prompt: % sunstudio
The following information has changed and been improved in the -11 version of the service manual. For the latest version of this manual go to:
Section 3.2.4, “Installing the DIMMS”, the Note was incorrect. The correct Note is shown here:
|Note - If your workstation has two CPUs and four DIMMs, the workstation operates most efficiently with two DIMMs per CPU. DIMM connectors are color-coded blue and black. You must install DIMMs in pairs in the same color connectors. DIMMs in the same bank must be from the same vendor and must be identical in size.|
The following illustrations were corrected in the -11 version of the Sun Ultra 45 Workstation Service and Diagnostics Manual:
Motherboard connector J3 should connect to the I/O module and connector J11 should connect to the DVD dual drive
