6337987: Serial Over LAN Connection Does Not Work When Using e1000g Driver

Description: The BladeCenter HS40 Server has an onboard Intel NIC that is supported by the e1000g driver. This driver does not currently provide full support for Serial over LAN (SOL) connections. While it is possible to initiate the connection, the login prompt is never displayed.

Workaround: Download and apply the latest revision of patch 118855 or install at least the Solaris 10 11/06 OS. For step-by-step instructions on setting up an SOL connection, see How to Set Up a Serial Over LAN Connection.
