madforit,

Can you answer the following questions?  This will help us troubleshoot the issue.

What type of system is this?
Is the card PCI or SBUS?
Can you post the output of show-devs, show-disks, and probe-scsi-all?
Do you have any drives connected to the card?

Thanks,
A

Hi,

   On ok prompt, type
ok boot -r
to re-configure your hardware device.

   Besides, if it is a special SCSI card which Solaris may not have the driver built-in, then you might want to check
the vendor's website for driver and instruction for Solaris.

I have tried the ok boot prompt and this does not work.

The system is a Sparc Power PC 200 the adapter i have is a adaptec 31960  

this card is PCI

question how can i post the show-devs from the OBP, i coud not do the normal >file name.txt this did not work is it some other syntax.

Write it down and type it manually. Those output are informative and can help people to trace the problem.

That is all the outputs from the various commands


Other questions how would i install a driver without a floppy drive. can i install it with the DVD drive.


I hope this information is useful

Thanks

After all of that work, I owe you a reply :-)

It looks like the card is recognized at OBP, so we've got a good start.  The first roadblock is the system name; I've not only accessed sunsolve.sun.com, but brought out my April 2003 Internal handbook, and I can't find mention of a Sparc Power PC 200.  Even google can't find a reference.

Even without references, though, I can take some guesses.

You have 2 SCSI adapters in this system.  One is built into the motherboard, and controls the two 18GB drives and the DVD.  The other is your Adaptec 39160 (you threw me a loop with the 31960 thing :)  It will be controlling the IBM tape library.

You have Solaris installed on the system, and you now want to install the driver so that you can use your Adaptec.

If this is the case, I've got bad news:  the Solaris driver for this card is x86 only.  It's not supported on your hardware :(

Sorry to be the killjoy on this one.

Take care,
Aaron

Hi Thanks for the reply

i agree with your comments and i have found the correct model

it's a Prime Power 200 fujitsu siemens :) silly me

i see what you mean about the hardware.....so what would you suggest, sorry about the typo earlier

i have a new external Ultrim2 tape drive which is LVD which i wish to use on the Solaris box.

what (hardware) scsi card would i need for my system so that the box would recognise the tape drive?.


thanks again

Hi,

   It's Fujitsu's Sparc hardware with Sun Solaris on it. So it is not in Sun's handbook.
