Known DR Software Bugs

This section lists important DR bugs.

Network Device Removal Fails When a Program Is Holding the Device Open (5054195)

If a process is holding open a network device, any DR operation that would involve that device fails. Daemons and processes that hold reference counts stop DR operations from completing.

Workaround: As superuser, perform the following steps:

  1. Remove or rename the /rplboot directory.

  2. Shut down NFS services.

    # sh /etc/init.d/nfs.server stop
  3. Shut down Boot Server services.

    # sh /etc/init.d/boot.server stop
  4. Perform the DR detach operation.

  5. Restart NFS services.

    # sh /etc/init.d/nfs.server start
  6. Restart Boot Server services.

    # sh /etc/init.d/boot.server start

Cannot Unconfigure cPCI Board With a Disabled Port 0 (4798990)

On Sun Fire midrange systems, a CompactPCI (cPCI) I/O board cannot be unconfigured when Port 0 (P0) on that board is disabled. This problem exists in Solaris 10 and Solaris 9 software. It also exists in Solaris 8 software that has one or more of the following patches installed:

The error also occurs only during DR operations that involve cPCI boards. An error message similar to the following example is displayed:

# cfgadm -c unconfigure NO.IB7
cfgadm: Hardware specific failure: unconfigure N0.IB7: Device

NO.IB7 is a CompactPCI I/O Board with P0 disabled.

Workaround: Disable the slots instead of Port 0.
