|Sun Fire X2270 M2 Server Installation Guide for Linux Operating Systems|
If your server has an on-board CD/DVD drive or an attached CD/DVD drive, you can install the drivers directly, using your server Tools & Drivers CD.
Before You Begin
The following requirements must be met before you install the drivers on your system.
Obtain the required device drivers from the Tools & Drivers CD or ISO image.
The Sun Fire X2270 M2 Server Tools & Drivers CD is provided in the Documentation and Media Kit, which is an option you can order. If necessary, you can also download an ISO image of the tools and drivers CD from the downloads page:
If your server does not contain a service processor, obtain the linux.zip file from the Sun download site. The linux.zip file contains the Linux drivers from the Sun Fire X2270 M2 Tools & Drivers CD.
Establish an installation environment (console, boot media, installation target).
For a distribution CD/DVD, insert the Tools & Drivers CD into the local or remote CD/DVD-ROM drive.
For an ISO image, in the Device menu of the Sun ILOM Remote Console, select the CD-ROM image to specify the location of the driver CD image.
# cd <mount_point>/drivers/linux/suse
# sh install.sh
The system device drivers are now installed. The script prompts you to reboot the system for changes to take effect.
