Solaris 10 10/08 Release Notes

Enabling Dynamic Reconfiguration

To enable dynamic reconfiguration, you must set two variables in the /etc/system file. You must also set an additional variable to enable the removal of CPU/memory boards. Perform the following steps:

  1. Log in as superuser.

  2. Edit the /etc/system file by adding the following lines:

    set pln:pln_enable_detach_suspend=1
    set soc:soc_enable_detach_suspend=1
  3. To enable the removal of a CPU/memory board, add this line to the file:

    set kernel_cage_enable=1

    Setting this variable enables the memory unconfiguration operation.

  4. Reboot the system to apply the changes.
