Hi, I was trying to back up my Sun Fire v100 and was successfully able to clone the hard drive courtesty of the dd command. However, I noticed the SSC card at the back of the sun fire, if this clone was successful, would it copied the information from the SSC card over also? Or do I need to manually configure the SSC card?

I keep getting [b]time out waiting for arp/rarp packet [/b] sunfire message during boot up.
 
Can someone provide instructions on how to do this?

Thanks in advance!

Oracle has a specific procedure dealing with ssc.

The new system might not have been configured.
Check the boot-device setting.

Hey Arnold, thanks for coming to the rescue again. :)

I read those links and it just mentions transporting an existing old SSC card into the new machine.

But what about a New Sunfire with an SSC card already there? How do we configure the new card? Any idea?

Here is the user guide for your system
http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E19088-01/v100.srvr/816-2756-10/816-2756-10.pdf

Look into LOM configuration which deals with managing system on the hardware level.
I.e system is powered off while the system is plugged in into power outlet.

scc card should be moved to new system of same type to transfer MAC addresses etc, but missing that you can anyway configure everything via boot rom

OK - I jumped the gun. It looks like the dd command did move all the settings from the old SSC card over.

Excellent, thanks for your help guys!

Nope. SCC is not essential for system operation. dd-d image will function but on new system you have different hardware identifiers for nodelocked software like sun studio etc.

SCC card has MAC addresses and hardware IDs for nodelocked software like sun studio to work. disk clone is usually bootable on similar systems with or without SCC

I am guessing that since the software works - it wasn't node locking enabled then.

I just wanted to say that in modern datacenter SCC is more or less a wall decoration...
