Solaris 10 Installation Guide for IBM BladeCenter Servers

6416708: Asy Driver Does Not Recognize Serial Port 2 on BladeCenter HS40 Servers

Description: On BladeCenter HS40 servers, the /dev/ttyb device might not be created. The Solaris OS uses the ACPI table to determine which serial ports are present on a system. Because the BIOS on the BladeCenter HS40 does not list COM2 in the ACPI table, the /dev/ttyb device is not created.

Workaround: Download and apply the latest revision of patch 118855 or install at least the Solaris 10 11/06 OS.
