Hardware Configuration Bugs

Systems With Small Memory Configurations Panic During Boot Time If They Have Several USB Devices (4359440)

USB capable systems with small memory configurations might panic when booting from either disk, CD or a network when several USB devices are connected. One of the following panic messages will appear in this event:

panic[cpu0]/thread=1040800: main: unable to fork init.


panic[cpu0]/thread=2a1000fdd40: BAD TRAP: type=31 
rp=2a1000fd0a0 addr=c0 mmu_fsr=0 occurred in module "genunix" due 
to a NULL pointer dereference

Workaround: If you have more than 4 USB devices, boot the system with only the USB keyboard and mouse connected. After you see the Solaris login prompt, connect the remaining USB devices.
