Verify the Installation (Oracle SPARC)

Before You Begin

Note - Verification is not required if your system supports DR.

  1. Power on the system.
  2. When the banner appears, press the Stop-A key sequence to interrupt the boot process and display the OpenBoot (ok) prompt.
  3. List the network devices on your system.
    ok show-nets
    a) /niu@480/network@0
    b) /pci@400/pci@2/pci@0/pci@c/network@0,3
    c) /pci@400/pci@2/pci@0/pci@c/network@0,2
    d) /pci@400/pci@2/pci@0/pci@c/network@0,1
    e) /pci@400/pci@2/pci@0/pci@c/network@0
    f) /pci@400/pci@2/pci@0/pci@a/network@0,1
    g) /pci@400/pci@2/pci@0/pci@a/network@0
    Enter Selection, q to quit: q

    Note - Checking the .properties output for each device is the surest way to identify the device.

  4. Check the .properties output for each device.

    The following examples assume that /pci@400/pci@2/pci@0/pci@a/network@0,1 is a port on the adapter.

    1. Move to the device directory.
      ok cd /pci@400/pci@2/pci@0/pci@a/network@0,1
    2. Display properties for the device.
      ok .properties

      The output should be similar to the following:

      ok .properties
