Locate a PCIe Card in the Server

  1. At the Oracle Solaris prompt, list all of the PCIe devices in the device tree:
    # hotplug list -l | grep PCIE

    This command lists dynamically reconfigurable PCIe resources and shows their operational status. In this case, look for the status of the card you plan to remove.

    This example is from a SPARC M7-8:

    root@m78-server:~# hotplug list -l | grep PCIE
    /pci@301/pci@1   [/SYS/CMIOU0/PCIE3] ENABLED
    /pci@303/pci@1 [/SYS/CMIOU0/PCIE1]   ENABLED
    /pci@305/pci@1 [/SYS/CMIOU1/PCIE2]   EMPTY
    /pci@306/pci@1 [/SYS/CMIOU1/PCIE3]   ENABLED 
    /pci@308/pci@1 [/SYS/CMIOU1/PCIE1]   ENABLED 
    /pci@30a/pci@1 [/SYS/CMIOU2/PCIE2]   EMPTY 
    /pci@30b/pci@1 [/SYS/CMIOU2/PCIE3]   EMPTY
    /pci@30d/pci@1 [/SYS/CMIOU2/PCIE1]   EMPTY 
    /pci@30f/pci@1 [/SYS/CMIOU3/PCIE2]   EMPTY
    /pci@310/pci@1 [/SYS/CMIOU3/PCIE3]   EMPTY
    /pci@312/pci@1 [/SYS/CMIOU3/PCIE1]   EMPTY 
    /pci@314/pci@1 [/SYS/CMIOU4/PCIE2]   EMPTY 
    /pci@315/pci@1 [/SYS/CMIOU4/PCIE3]   EMPTY
    /pci@317/pci@1 [/SYS/CMIOU4/PCIE1]   EMPTY
    /pci@319/pci@1 [/SYS/CMIOU5/PCIE2]   EMPTY
    /pci@31a/pci@1 [/SYS/CMIOU5/PCIE3]   EMPTY
    /pci@31c/pci@1 [/SYS/CMIOU5/PCIE1]   EMPTY
    /pci@31e/pci@1 [/SYS/CMIOU6/PCIE2]   EMPTY
    /pci@31f/pci@1 [/SYS/CMIOU6/PCIE3]   EMPTY
    /pci@321/pci@1 [/SYS/CMIOU6/PCIE1]   EMPTY
    /pci@323/pci@1 [/SYS/CMIOU7/PCIE2]   EMPTY
    /pci@324/pci@1 [/SYS/CMIOU7/PCIE3]   EMPTY
    /pci@326/pci@1 [/SYS/CMIOU7/PCIE1]   EMPTY 
  2. The keyword (EMPTY) identifies a slot that contains a blank filler panel.
  3. Determine the type of card that is currently in a slot.
    # hotplug  get -o card_type path
  4. Determine your next step.
