Sun Cluster 3.0-3.1 Hardware Administration Manual for Solaris OS

GigaSwift Ethernet Driver and Jumbo Frames

If you are using jumbo frames, you must edit the ce.conf file to configure them, as explained in the Sun GigaSwift documentation.

The driver documentation instructs you to grep certain entries from the /etc/path_to_inst file to determine your entries for the ce.conf file. If you are using an operating system earlier than the Solaris 10 OS, the OS modifies the entries on Sun Cluster nodes, adding a node-identifier prefix to them. For example, an entry modified for a Sun Cluster node resembles the following:

# grep ce /etc/path_to_inst 
"/node@1/pci@8,600000/network@1" 0 "ce"

When editing the ce.conf file, remove the /node@nodeID identifier prefix from the entries that you put into the driver configuration file. For the example above, the entry to put into the configuration file is:

"/pci@8,600000/network@1" 0 "ce"
