I need to install 2 SS7 boards on a Sun T5220. I want to know if there is a procedure or a prerequisite to do it? Help, I  am a newbie

Are these just PCI or PCI-E cards?  Are you looking for the physical procedure to opening the box and installing them?

Essentially, you'll want to shut down the box, ground it (preferably by attaching a grounding cable from the box to a grounded rack), wear a wrist grounding strap attached to the chassis when working inside, install the cards, and then boot -r to allow the OS to detect them.  I'm guessing these cards probably have their own drivers as well, so you should follow the driver installation guide for them.

i have installed the ss7 board but i am having a driver error

WARNING: forceload of drv/e1driver01_ failed
WARNING: forceload of drv/e1driver01_ failed
Error: Unable to init open counts.  Kernel struct change?

Open in new window

don't know what to do next

Are you certain the driver you installed was the correct one?  This sounds like an issue you should contact the manufacturer of the card about.
