Hi,

I have a StorEdge A5200 disk array connected to a Sun E450  server running Solaris 2.6.  I'm missing the following packages for Solaris 2.6 that will allow me to see the PCI FC-100 Fibre Channel Host Adapter:

    * SUNWifp
    * SUNWifph
    * SUNWvtsfp
    * SUNWses
    * SUNWssadv
    * SUNWvts
    * SUNWssad

Can anyone e-mail them to me <Email add removed by yuzh - Page Editor, see

Thanks,

Mark

Hi Mark,

    Solaris 6 is very old now, consider upgrade you system to at least Solaris 8,
you can download Solaris 9 (free) from:
    http://wwws.sun.com/software/solaris/binaries/get.html

    Upgrade your OS, you will get better hardware support, at least it is easier to
find the add on packages.

    Or you can give Sun a call to see if they can give your the packages for Solaris 6.

   Normally the pachages is inside the CD shiped with the A5200. (If you ask Sun, I
don't think they will charge you.)

Sun doesn't work like that - they won't just send you some packages you are missing in Solaris 2.6.

Hi,

Moderator,  please close this question for me.  Sun sent me the files I needed for my server.

Thanks,

Mark
